This past week of fishing was a bit bittersweet in the fact that we had a decent bite for muskies but due to water temps reaching 80+ degrees, we will not be fishing for them until we see a major cool down. Its extremely detrimental to the fish and plenty of delayed mortality will take place in warm water. I strongly discourage anyone fishing for them in these temps. On the upside of things, the white bass have certainly turned on and are very active lately, with many nice big ones around and chasing bait. Walleyes have been scattered between 3-5' and 10-14' but still very catchable on jigs and live bait or trolling cranks. Crappie seem to be a bit deeper and active on some days on jigs and plastics. Catfish are very active these days and are a good alternative for some good action. Have fun and enjoy our "dog days"

Well I was going to take my boat out Tuesday , but its going to be upper 80's and little wind , so I guess it will just have to wait. But I do need to get last years gas out of it , so maybe in the fall.

If any one ever has an extra seat Tuesday's or Thursday's any time and want some extra company I would love to tag along some time.  I can be very helpful around the boat and don't mind chipping in for gas. I'm just a 29 year old guy that loves to be on the water fishing.  message me if you are interested!  Thanks!

This week on the chain was pretty productive for fishing. The stable weather system did us some good. The muskies cooperated and were chasing Bucktails, topwaters, rubber swimbaits and available on the troll as well. Find the bait and you find the fish. The walleyes were decent in a little deeper water. 10-15' was good and the best offering was jigs and crawlers and #5 or #7 flicker shads. The white bass schooled up for a few days and some good sized ones were being caught. Crappie and gills are scattered but active when found. Was a great week to be out fishing!

I fished Sunday 6:30 am to 5:30 pm. I caught white bass, walleye, largemouth bass, perch, and bluegill on live bait, small spinners, and flicker shads. The best areas were wind blown shores 4 to 6 FOW with some weeds.  There were about 1,000 boats out which made fishing tough but interesting.

This week on the Chain things were a bit slower than it had been previously. Trolling wind blown shores and jigging with 1/4 ounce jigs with crawlers did the trick for multi species. Muskies were taking topwaters on some days and other days swimbaits and rubber baits were productive. The trolling bite was still there but not as hot as it was. Looking forward to some stable weather and a better bite next week

This week on the chain we encountered two cold fronts, which made for challenging fishing at times. The trolling bite was a good option. Running baits a bit deeper and finding good schools of bait was important. On overcast days, the fish would move shallower and into the weeds. Live bait for multi species was best and top water and Bucktails for muskies was a good choice. Next week with more stable weather, we should see a good bite
