Jenks Bait & Tackle Fishing Report

Date: 2020-09-25

Walleye

Walleye fishing has picked up slightly in the last couple of days since the warm up. Minnows have been the bait of choice...particularly sucker minnows and larger fatheads. Word is that the Walleye bite has been particularly better on the East side in 16-18 feet over mud flats and by bigger underwater rocks.

Musky

Musky have been pretty solid recently. The sucker bite has been pretty good and jerk baits and rubber baits have been hot lately. Deeper edges and edges of the weeds have been prime spots this week. Check the general news section for Sucker Availability this weekend.

Northern

Pike have been a bit slower this weekend but they are still getting some smaller ones on live bait and spinners in the weeds.

Crappie

Crappie are still primarily spread out. The increased temperatures this week have delayed their schooling in Moore's Bay and the Blueberries. Minnows, Crappie Scrubs, and Mini-Mites have been good!

Bass

Smallies continue to be good on Ned Rigs. Stumps, Rocks, and Cribs are all good spots on the East Side for Smallmouth.

General

Sucker Availability: We got 2 Deliveries of Suckers today! We are well stocked on Small Suckers, decently stocked on Mediums, and only a few larges but they are available. Stop in as early as you can as they will probably disappear quickly. Fall Color Report: We are not in peak season but the colors are really starting to come out now.

Weather

This week looks to be much cooler than last week with highs in the 70s this weekend but the highs will drop starting Monday into the mid 60s and then over the course of the week we will see highs in the mid 50s. Next weekend expect highs in the high 40s to low 50s. Expect light Rain Monday thru Friday.

Water Level

2-3 feet down

Water Temp

Low 60s and most likely dropping this week.
