Minocqua Area Fishing Report

March 19, 2018

Great weather and improving conditions on the ice led to lots of angler participation over the weekend.


Crappie:  Very Good – The warm weather helped with the functioning tip-down bite.  Oddly, some reports on Crappies in 22-25’, some in 13-18’ and others up as shallow as 7-10’.  Rosies and small minnows on tip-downs.  In shallower water dipping plastics, especially dark colors such as black, maroon, red and purple best.  Lots of reports of 11-13”+ fish.


Yellow Perch:  Very Good – Wiggler bite hot over mud flats, varying depths depending on lakes from 14-28’.  Tip-downs with minnows also producing.


Bluegill:  Very Good – Lots of action but some sorting.  Small #10 rockers, as well as Moon Glo jigs tipped with waxies, mousees or plastics.  Dark colors on bright days, but bright colors working when Gills very aggressive.


With ice 22-30” thick and still plenty of snow cover, add in nights in single digits to teens and we should have another 3 weeks of ice fishing to go.
