I know I haven't made a new report in a loooong time, and I'm sorry about that. The truth is, nothing had changed until recently.
My clients have still been catching bass on weed edges in 14 to 20 feet on West Okoboji. Berkley power worms and Havoc Flat Dawgs on jigs have been getting bit consistently. Walleye have been hitting these presentations also. Though not getting as many bites, skirted jigs with a 4" Chigger Craw trailer have been getting bigger fish. The bluegill and yellow bass have been good on the very deep weed edges in 20-30 feet depths. Slip bobbers and jigger spoons tipped with red worms or wigglers work well.
The change has come when ever we get a nice little cold front. If the water temp drops just a little the crankbait bite for walleye on East Okoboji heats up. Bonus fish on this trolling bite are yellow bass and crappie. Here is a real tip for you: If the sheephead are the biggest share of your catch when trolling, speed up. Also the bluegill and yellow bass have been very good on East lake with the same baits as on West.
I have not been on Spirit Lake lately but plan to be soon. Fall is near and so is a great bite so call and book your trip now.
