This is the fishing report for Wednesday, May 27, 2020, sponsored by the Detroit Lakes Regional Chamber of Commerce.
Lake activity was extremely busy in the Detroit Lakes area over the Memorial Holiday. The walleye bite was very good on most area lakes as was the crappie bite, and the weather held up nicely to kick off summer. Water temps are in the low 60’s and warming with the hot sunny days. Crappies should remain up shallow and on the beds for the next week. Walleyes will start moving off shallow flats as the shiner bite finishes up and slide off edges to deeper water. Leeches and crawlers will become more of a factor for catching walleyes. Bass are still active shallow in weeds and on docks or shallow cover. Pelican Lake will be hosting the F-M Walleye tournament on Friday, May 29th and Saturday the 30th, so you may want to get on a less busy lake during those days.
