FISHING CONDITIONS ON LAKES CADILLAC AND MITCHELL

FROM PILGRIM VILLAGE FISHING SHOP

SUNDAY, JULY 20, 2014

 

 

The warm temperatures are finally here, cool evenings, warm days.  This is heaven.  Spring has passed and so has the easy catch, any time, any where.  Fish early, fish late for the best success.

The warmer weather hasn't affected bass fishing.  They seem to be hungry all the time.  Bobber fishing with crawlers or leeches is almost a sure thing.  Tricking them on artificials is even more fun.   Put out a surface bait from your tackle box and see what happens.

Everyone wants to catch walleyes.  Both lakes have been stocked with plenty of them.  However, they're on vacation.  It's been slow.  It's been one here or there.  No patttern.  Mostly accidental catches on leeches or crawlers.

No shortage of crappies.  Close to limits of 8 to 10 inchers are common.  Mornings they're close to the surface, the top 3 or 4 feet.  If you over sleep, fish deep.

Some bluegill anglers are finding gills and sunfish in the reeds on Mitchell.  These are those big black rascals with a touch of red at the gills.  Big and strong some call them roaches.
