Northwest Iowa 

 

Big Spirit Lake: Bullhead – Good: Action on the Grade is still hot throw a worm on the bottom and be ready. Largemouth Bass – Good: Look for largemouth around the weeds try top water early and late in the day along with crankbaits, jigs and plastic worms. Smallmouth Bass – Good: Look for smallies on the rock piles try trowing crank baits, jerk baits, and plastics. Walleye – Fair: Fishing has been best early and late in the day with leeches being the live bait of choice. Trolling, drifting, and slip bobbers have all been proven fish catchers. Some are trolling crankbaits as well.

 

Five Island Lake: Walleye – Fair: Try drifting Lindy rigs and bottom bouncers during low light periods. Channel Catfish – Fair: Try drifting Lindy rigs and bottom bouncers during low light periods.

 

Lost Island Lake: Walleye – Fair: Drifting live bait with Lindy rigs and bottom bouncers has been producing a few fish some days are better than others.

 

Silver Lake: Try throwing a bottom rig for quality size bullheads around the shorelines and don’t be surprised to catch a catfish.

 

West Okoboji Lake: Bluegill – Slow: Fishing in the backs of the bays around the weeds can be good at times look deeper for the biggest fish. Largemouth Bass – Fair: Try fishing around the weeds in the bays topwater and soft plastics should produce. Smallmouth Bass – Slow: Look toward the rock piles for smallmouth action.
