Weekly Rhinelander Area Outdoor Report from Mitch Mode of Mel's Trading Post:

June 20, 2012

Musky action is picking up this week. Witness the Curt Ebert Boom Lake Tournament held
this past weekend where nearly 20 fish were registered including one in the 47" range. 
Musky fishing has been slow but if that 2-day tourney is any indication it's picking up. 
The combination of steady weather and lack of cold fronts is probably the reason but
whatever the cause this is good news for area anglers.

Musky fishing in summer is often very good under overcast skies and that was the case
for the tournament.  Look for similar conditions in the days ahead.  We really like those
days of heavy cloud, rising humidity and westerly or southerly winds and we've seen a
few of them this week.  Muskies can be very active during daylight hours on those days
and it's worth the effort to get out on the water.  One cautions needs to be noted, that
being the possibility of heavy storms in late afternoons.  Keep an eye on the sky
(weather usually moves in from the west or south) and if things look ugly get to shore. 
Heavy rains and strong winds can hit in a very short time.

We are seeing muskies take a variety of lures with top water lures doing well,
especially on cloudy days or evenings.

Walleyes remain on the slow end of the spectrum and have been that way most of the
season.  We'd work the typical June areas of deeper weedbeds and use jigs tipped with
leeches or crawlers worked along the edges of the thicker cover.  Evenings are usually
best but on a day of thick clouds we'll see fish boated at all hours.

Bass season, the catch-and-keep season, opened last Saturday and early reports were
good.  Largemouth should be coming on strong in this warmer weather and the past
days have confirmed that with decent fishing coming in the evening hours but also during
the day on some of those cloudy days that are good for musky fishing as well.  We saw
largemouth taking some basic minnow imitations and that's always a good idea.  Work the
Rapala or similar along the edges of lily pads or toss a weedless frog lure into the thick stuff.

Smallmouth bass have been in deeper water and we did not see as many this weekend as
we did largemouth.  In this hot weather fishing for them in the Wisconsin River down from
Rhinelander is always an option.  Wading the shallow stretches below Hat Rapids Dam and
tossing a swimming jig is often very productive.

Panfish action has slowed some with the one exception being some hot action on bluegills. 
There are still some big bluegills acting pretty aggressive and there have been some good
catches on them.  We've heard of anything from small jigs and minnows to Beetle Spins
and Mepps Spinners taking 'gills.  We would expect some good fishing for bluegills to
continue into the weekend.
