Walleye, bass, panfish and musky all hitting; all in and amidst the lakes and the Wisconsin River in Wisconsin’s Marathon and Lincoln Counties (near Mosinee and Wausau).
Even with the hot temperatures the bite has been good for most species in the central Wisconsin area.
The walleye bite in the central Wisconsin are has been good with nice catches from deeper water on jigs tipped with crawlers and leeches.
The action for bass in the central Wisconsin area continues to be good with some very nice fish being caught on jig and plastics and on top water baits.
Panfish in the central Wisconsin area remain very active and continue to get better and better as the warmth continues. Most of our action has been taking place from deep water structure in 10 to 14 feet of water with some of the crappies holding over even deeper water.
The musky bite is starting to pick up in the central Wisconsin area, but most of the action remains during very low light periods with some after dark activity. Top water baits and bucktails continue to be the most consistent producers, but a few fish have been coming on jerkbaits like Sucks and Phantoms.
