Walleye are back hitting very slow troll. Chartreuse flicker shad number 7 did the trick this time on Fox lake Sunday afternoon. Back out tomorrow for some more.

I saw a kid sitting in a tree fishing in May, huck finn style, and thought to myself "that must be a good spot"...We had a lucky afternoon fishing, not pictured ias a half dozen notable bass, perch and a few drum.... no net. all fish relaeased unharmed. Ironicly, no blue gill or sunfish. In a nook of Lake Marie 3fow. Avoid the yellow jetskis.
Thanks Walleye 1976. I assume most debris you can see well enough as long as you are paying attention? I still plan on taking it slow, but would like to hit at least a few of the lakes. I'll try to post after tomorrow. Hopefully I have some good pics to share!
Was out yesterday boat traffic wasn't terrible. Was trolling for walleye no luck. But the white bass were hitting like craZy!! 30+ the water seems to be getting back to normal. Watch out for debris there are still some large logs here and there. I'll be out for another try tomorrow. Good luck

Fished yesterday 6-10am, TMD is right on the money with the water conditions. Didn't find any ski, we ended up pitching docks and found a LOT of LMB on bright colors moving baits. definitely tough but nice to be back out on home waters. cheers and tight lines.

Well spent better part of 3 hrs an Channel and Marie. Trolling motor all the way. Water color is dark chocolate. Turbid. 8 out of 10 casts the leader would hit my rod tip before I could see the lure even when we switched to fluorescent bladed bucktails. The bigger issue is the unbelievable amount of junk in the water. during the first 30 minutes we counted 4 substantial logs, half submerged, in the water. Dont want to hit one of those babies even at no wake speed. As far as fish - one blow up however I believe that was only because my cast must have hit it on the head. Even if they lift the no wake this weekend going to be dicey and getting the kids to go into that water challenging. My opinion - going to be a while longer
