KICK OFF TO SUMMER!!!
As anticipated, water temperatures have risen substantially over the past few days. Dock fishing has improved with evenings being best well past dark. We are now sitting in the mid 50’s and that has changed the bite for the better. Even though walleyes are scattered, if you do some running to your favorite spots you will eventually find active fish. Crappies are becoming more active as well. Trent Snyder’s report from Snyder’s Guide Service sums it up pretty well.
“Fishing has Been pretty steady. I’m finding them in the 24-32′ range and some in the shallows as well. I’m I jig and minnow guy but some Lindy rig fishing is working as well. The walleye’s are really scattered around so for the most part you can find them anywhere, bays, islands and rock piles. The deeper ones are more of the eater size the bigger ones typically in the shallows. Good fishing all. Trent Snyder”
The area has really woken up this past week. With the warm weather, the foliage on the trees have come alive and we are finally green. Doesn’t look the same as it did a week ago. We skipped spring and jumped into summer! Hummingbirds are back with a vengeance and hitting the feeders hard! Baltimore orioles are back as well but we don’t have a large breeding population as we are on the northern fringes of their breeding grounds. Mother Nature has so much going on this time of year that it’s hard to keep up! Everyone seems to be enjoying the change of seasons and with all that’s going on in the world today, I believe we are all ready for some mental relaxation. What better place to do that than up here in God’s country!
Here at Gateway, we are ready to rock and roll into summer. We are stocked up with just about anything you may need or may have forgotten. Ice cream is already going strong with lots of great flavors. We have expanded our food menu and have lot’s of clothing options to pick from. Need bait? We have everything you need, including shiners, to help you catch the big one!
It’s time to kick summer off with a bang! Have a safe and healthy Memorial weekend and we’ll see you soon!
