Lower Herring Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Summer Fishing Tip provided by Guide Chatt Martin: Same requirements as spring, but deeper. For beginners, rivers and creeks are the best because "deep" is relative. In a creek, a crappie's summer spot might only be 5 feet from their springtime spot, because there isn't as much deep water to begin with, so bank bound anglers can usually catch crappies in basically the same places they caught them in the spring. In lakes, summer usually means having a fishfinder, or sonar unit, and looking for those "sticking up things" in deeper water. However, there are a couple ways to find those spots even if you don't have a fishfinder. One is a Kentucky rig, which is a live bait rig with a very heavy weight on the bottom that will allow you to feel it when you drag it through a brushpile. The other is, plant your own brushpiles so you'll know where they are. Still, in the summer, a beginners best bet is a shallow creek or river with good bank access.

Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The full moon has just past. The gravitational pull is starting to decrease with the moon and sun being on opposite sides of the planet. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today's solar/lunar peaks. It's always fun trying something new at the peak times to change things up a bit and test out the Lunar Theory each time you hit the water in close to full and full moon situations. Good luck you there.
