Hayward Area Buzz Bite Report 5-25-2021

by | May 27, 2021 | Buzz Bite Report, Wisconsin | 0 comments

Just about everything in the Hayward area is in less than fifteen feet of water. Water temps continue to climb and fish are preparing to spawn.

Smallmouth bass have moved on to the rocks near their spawning areas.

Jerk baits, ned rigs, and hair jigs are all producing smallies.

The largemouth bass bite has really turned on over the past few days. We are catching them on bass jigs, lipless crankbaits and especially ned rigs. I know a few have even been biting topwater baits like frogs and poppers. Check out any shallow bays with weeds. That is where you will find a good amount of largemouth bass schooled up.

Northern Pike are super aggressive right now and chasing anything flashy. You can find them in those same areas you are find the largemouth bass, and any weed lines in six to eight feet of water. Crankbaits, spinner baits, and jig and plastics will work well.

The crappies are in shallow spawning. You will find them in shallow water bays, shorelines with reeds and any wood or downed trees in the water.

Bluegills are also starting to move onto their beds.

Walleye fishing around the Hayward area has been a little bit slower. You can still catch some fish but the bite hasn’t been on fire. The best bite has been shallow in less than fifteen feet of water during those primetime hours in the morning and evening.

Live bait rigs, slip bobbers, jig and minnow and jig and plastics have been the go to baits.

Good luck out there and make sure you get out and get hooked up!

About Caleb Wistad
  Hey there! My name is Caleb Wistad. Growing up in the small town of Spooner, WI, my upbringing was steeped in the outdoor experience. Ever since I could follow my dad around through the woods and on the water, I have been obsessed with fishing, hunting and trapping. I still live here in Northwest Wisconsin with my lovely wife Morgan and 8-year-old son Jackson. I fish both open water and on the ice in such places as the Great Lakes, the Mississippi River and many inland lakes, streams, rivers and reservoirs, annually targeting over 30 different species of fish here in Wisconsin. I am committed to discovering new and unique ways to efficiently and consistently put patterns together to catch more fish. As a full-time Master plumber, I sometimes have to get creative to feed my fishing addiction. In 2019 my wife suggested I start an Instagram account to post some of my fishing photos. I begrudgingly agreed and decided to name my account @hookedupwi. I soon found social media to be a great way to connect with lots of like-minded, awesome people when I couldn’t be out on the water or ice and my account grew quickly. One thing led to another and march of 2020 I filmed my first video and posted it to YouTube and was blown away by the response. I am now uploading weekly YouTube videos, posting daily to Instagram and Facebook, managing social media accounts for some great companies, and now, giving you guys up-to-date reports here on Angling Buzz! I use a combination of knowledge, patterns, innovation, tackle and gear to find and catch more fish and I bring all those keys together for you on multiple platforms so you can learn to use these methods as well. I am also very involved with responding to anyone with questions on ice conditions, fishing reports, tactics that are working at the time, or just talking fishing so don’t be shy, drop by and say “hi” and let’s get hooked up!!
