Hi fishing is all over the greater Jackson County area lakes. The bluegills and bass are in the shallows and are hitting just about anything and everything that you throw at them. The best presentation for the gills has been in 3 to 5 feet of water about halfway down with bobbers and a plain hook and worm. The bass have not been very finicky and are hitting soft plastics and rubber worms very hard as they spawn and protect their beds. Please take note, if you catch a big female or a male off the bed and you're not going to keep it, get it back in the water quickly so it can protect the baby bass. Just about everything else has also been biting. Walleye and Crappie have been solid during the early season as have northern pike. Don't forget to get your biggest fish over to Knutson's in Brooklyn to be part of their fishing contest, stop by with the fish and let them take your picture.
