Spring offers lots of fishing oppurtunities throughout the Chaumont Bay area:
Bass season opens the 3rd Saturday in June and you may not target them until then. No Catch and Release allowed in Jefferson county on the Lake.
The Perch bite is picking up. The jumbos are in 15-40 ft now.
Pike and pickerel are hitting well in 10-20 foot weedy areas.
Walleyes have been on fire all spring (since last fall for that matter). The bite has begun to slow now as the large schools of baitfish work into the bay. Lots of fish still being caught however in 10-30 ft.
Spinners tipped with worms or minnows and shallow running stick baits (bombers have been hot) as well as spoons. 1.8-2 .9mph as a rule for walleyes. 243 mph for browns. Both typically will be found near the mouth of the bay as well as the shoreline from Three mile bay around to the isthmus.
Good Luck to Everyone no matter what you chose. And be safe, Life Jackets save lives in cold waters!
