Wisconsin guide Jeff Evans gives his latest Buzz Bite Report for the Hayward Wisconsin area on March 24th, 2023.

Hayward Wisconsin: 3-24-2023

We still have over two feet of snow on most of the inland lakes in the Hayward Wisconsin area and across much of Northern Wisconsin. The snow has made travel very difficult. Snowmobiles or foot travel are the only two ways to get out onto the lakes.

Look for bluegills, crappies, and perch in the transition areas between the basins and shallow bays. On most lakes the best depths have been between ten and fifteen feet of water.

The bite is pretty good and most of the fish can be caught on small spoons or tungsten jigs paired with wax worms or plastics.

Chequamegon Bay on Lake Superior still has good ice and anglers can expect to catch a nice mixed bag of whitefish, splake, brown trout, herring, salmon, and perch.

Jigging spoons tipped with minnow heads and set lines paired with live shiners has been the ticket for trout and salmon. The perch bite has been best using set lines with fatheads and shiners. Stay mobile and flexible to give yourself the best odds of getting on fish.

Stay safe, be smart, and have fun out there! Get out and enjoy the late ice bite in Northern Wisconsin!

About Jeff Evans
Like most of you reading this, I love to fish, plain and simple. Born in Hayward, WI, I've been blessed with many opportunities that have led me to a career on the water. As is the case with most kids, I was introduced to fishing by my father, a retired educator and coach who always made sure a trip to Canada or the Boundary Waters was scheduled at the end of every school year. My grandmother Doris was also instrumental in encouraging my passion and interest for all things fishing. You see, Doris fished, and she loved to eat what she caught. Bluegills were of special interest to Doris, and some of my fondest and earliest memories on the water were spent with her below the Nelson Lake dam. We always cleaned what we caught after an obligatory stop at West’s Dairy for the best ice cream cone ever made.   In 2013, the decision was made to begin guiding full time and devote all energy to my career on the water. I became a credentialed U.S. Coast Guard Charter Captain and certified to guide on waters of the Great Lakes that I've fished for many years. This includes Chequamegon Bay and the St. Louis River-Superior Harbor in addition to the inland lakes I've been guiding on since 1992. The continued support from my family, friends, and faithful customers has made it possible for me to pursue my passion. You've all helped me in so many ways. There aren’t enough words to express how I appreciate having you in my corner. The relationships I've made on the water are priceless, and I don’t take any of you for granted.
