Jenks Bait & Tackle Fishing Report

Date: 2020-10-23


Walleye have been a bit more active this week although the patterns have been kind of all over the place. Some fishermen have been reporting catching them in the weeds and others have been reporting catching them in deeper holes. However, the common thread between the two spots is that the weeds have been by the deeper holes. So work both types of structure and see what produces more. Minnows are the ticket right now.


Musky are active particularly on Suckers. If you are casting and you are not dragging a sucker or two along you are limiting your potential success. This time of year, you want to be focusing on neck downs and narrows and points bordering deeper water. Do not ignore the tips of the points as these are some of the most productive spots.


Not many reports coming in on the Crappie this week as Musky and Walleye have been the predominant fish of choice this past week, but the Crappie are out there. Cribs are probably your best bet on minnows.


Sucker Update: We have a good supply of suckers this weekend. After this weekend sucker availability will be a crap shoot. So make sure to stock up this weekend for the next few weeks. Hours Update: This Sunday will be the end of our regular season hours at Jenk’s Bait and Tackle for the 2020 Season. We will still be around but be sure to all ahead of time if you wish to come in so I can make it a point to be at the shop when you come in.


This week will be cold but not blistering cold. Highs will primarily be in the 30s this week with lows ranging from the high teens to mid 20s. By next weekend temps will increase again into the 40s. Expect some very light snow on Sunday.
