Things change; that’s the way it is. There usually isn’t much you can do about it either, except maybe adapt. When it comes to walleye angling, there have been plenty of changes, including water that has been getting clearer and clearer.

As water levels are beginning to drop and return to normal, so are the crappies and bluegills.

I have noticed on the water lately that the schools of crappies and sunfish are now moving to their midsummer haunts and that includes staying suspended over deep water.

I’ve already been on some great fishing trips this season that have included Red Lake, the Northwest Angle and Leech Lake, with a lot more to come. Undoubtedly, the most memorable though will have been nothing exotic and as bare bones as you can get and involved a trip to a local lake to chase some little bluegills.
