After a long wait for the game fish season to start the weekend finally arrived. The pan fish action has been good on smaller lakes which have been much warmer.
I have been experiencing consistent success spending time in the Kettle Moraine area fishing on the Lauderdale Lakes Chain and in the Whitewater area catching limits of perch, crappie, pumpkinseed and blue gill.
Fishing has been excellent both in deep water as well as shallow with a median depth of 8-12 feet of water.
Water has been warming slowly with the surface temperatures being in the high 50’s reaching the mid-60’s by late afternoon.
