It was nice running into ya Larry.. Super nice guy! I just started fishing the lake this early this summer. I'm a weekend warrior so my time is limited. But I have been here most every weekend.the last few weeks have been spotty for me for walleyes.trolling flicker shads and salmos between 1.7 to 2.2 .Today was 4 whitebass one nice crappie and a12" perch. Did catch one pike about 32". It was fun but wasn't the walleye I was chasing..I normally fish most of the day with the option to pop up into the river but the wind was picking up pretty good..I'll see ya out there Larry! Tight lines!

Pulled into launch at 6:15 this morning I was second in line. It was cool to talk to the young guy in front off me. His attitude is the same as mine, in order to learn a body off water you got to put your time in. Hours and a few pointers from some locals and you've got a chance. I hope Jim did better than me. 4shorts and 1plus size white for me. Some caught on Flicker Minnows at 2.3 15' back and a couple on Shad Rap . Why is it so hard for me to put those big rods down and grab a jig rod?PEACE Big Smile Cool Big Smile

Rig: Pick yourself up some 1/16 oz. ISG Slow-Fall jigs. This will help reduce the snags. Trim the plastic brush guard to suit the situation.

Keep a tight line!!!

Uncle was out on River Thursday and Friday. Lots and lots of walleyes up to 26". He said he was using knuckle jig with big gulp minnow . He said best bait was 1/8 oz orange jig head with white Moxie tail. He's not a posting on Internet type guy. I'm not sure he even has computer yet. See you out there tomorrow. Colder but less wind. PEACE,LAR DOB

Got out to fish for the first time this month. A fair number of boats on the river near Blackhawk I. No one admitted catching anything keeper sized, not even the shore fishermen. A half dozen boats trolling the rock pile. I was too busy catching to notice if anyone else was. Good news-bad news:good news is that there seems to be a couple of year classes that did well besides 2008; bad news is I had to sort through a couple of dozen fish to keep one >15". Lost two bigger eyes just out of reach of the net. Hint: run your shads 10-15' behind your boards and experiment with speed. 2.2 mph was the ticket today for the shorts and 2.3+ mph for the larger ones. Got to the launch and decided to release the keeper for another day. Water was higher and warm @ 58 f.

+ Another great fall to be out fishing. I started this morning at 10 a.m. Found fish right away. kept 2 crappies and 18 bluegill, all between 8 and 9 inches. Nice 12 inch crappie. Lost more than usual Jigs today. I snagged more times than I ever remember. The bluegill bite was very light, but the crappies slammed it. You have to be quick to get them out of the snags. that is where half of my lost jigs went. Same bait as the last two weeks was the ticket. I hope the weather stays like this for a couple more weeks and I will be back. Evil Grin Big Smile

I fished 7:30-11am today. Wind was strong enough to drift at a pretty good clip. Decided to drift minnows and crawlers over the gravel beds. I ended the day with 3 small eyes and a big white bass. All released to get bigger.

Water temp 51 at 7am. 53.3at 11am. Dont put troll rods away just yet. Took a few minutes to get in the groove but paid off. Caught four good ones. Biggest at 22. Keep two and a white for kids tonight. Jr thunderstick in purple was on fire for 2foot long norts. Had to continually check boards. Small eyes would hang on and you couldn't tell they was there. Lost a good one at side of boat. The fish wasn't what upset me it was the lure that went with her. Last one in box bought at Mills. (Exclusive color). That lure was on fire and caught 90% of Walleyes today.PEACE til next time. LAR Big Smile Cool Big Smile

Again fished the downed trees along both sides downstream from the lake. Took a little longer to find the 21 I caught today. I started at 9 am and found my first bluegill at 10:30. 2 or 3 and moved. quit at 1:30. Lost a nice crappie . kept 20 bluegills between 8-9 inches and a 10 inch crappie. Same bait as before Mini-mite tipped with a wax worm. Cool

One of my kids got me some new baits to try out. I guess for today I will just fantasize that flag slamming down. Last Saturday I got sunburnt on my back. Today I'm firing up my augers and charging the Vex battery. Gotta love Southern Wisconsin. Peace guys, Lar Big Smile Cool Big Smile
