The biggest highlights-2 muskies in the net at once and a 28" walleye. Pretty cool to be a part of!

The more stable weather brought us better fishing this week. Some very nice fish hit the net. Downsizing was still the best option for the most part. Crawlers for eyes and smaller Bucktails and cranks were the ticket for muskies. Crappies and whites were pretty good too this week. Overall it was a better and more productive week. Hopefully this cold front on the weekend doesn't hurt us.

Worked a half day on the roof due to the weather. Where one can't work in rain but one can definitely fish it. Yesterday 5/27 fished from 2 to 5 with rain storms everywhere around the boat brought a big big school of Walleye to Pistakee. Caught 32 Walleye, multiple Hogs @ 25.5, 23, 22, and 19. Would have limited out three times (if I were to keep them). The 25.5 looked like it was a 28"er with the girth and weight. Walleye wanted half crawler with quick pops off the bottom. Pink head with chartreuse twister tale. In a 20 minute stretch either caught a walleye or had a bite every cast! Excellent fights, vibrant colors! They were nuts yesterday!

Got out Monday about 6:30 pm, wind was blowing something fierce. White caps galore.I started second guessing my gut and the always faithful weather channel. Fished for a 1/2 hour not a bite. Right about 7 pm, literally went from 2 - 3 foot swells to a very light ripple on the water. All Hell broke loose! Landed a Hog of a 25" Eye, a hoHog of a 19" that had escaped the mouth of a Northern/Musky, and 3 @ 13.5 within 20 minutes of that wind dying down. Black Jig head with a third of a crawler. This year thus far Walleye numbers are up and these fish are healthy! Canada in the back yard!

This report is yet again full of up and downs. The weather had thrown us some curve balls with morning temps in the 30s and some days the high in the mid 40s. The fronts and wind really made a big difference in where we fished and where we found success. A few days we found walleyes stacked up and caught some good numbers and size and other days we found ourselves sorting through shorts and struggling to get limits. Downsizing and finesse fishing was key for multi species. Also downsizing for muskies seemed to be key as well. Weeds are showing up on the lakes. Unfortunately I have not seen the beautiful deep weeds that we have had on the two north lakes since 2 years ago. Channel and Catherine have not recovered from the weed kill it experienced. I believe it is a combination of people spraying and cold winters. I was going to put a call in this week to the biologist and get his thoughts on it. It would be great to have those deep weeds back. I believe that with steady weather this week ahead that fishing is going to become pretty good. I'll see you guys on the water!

Just wondering have the bass and panfish spawned yet? I think they spawned around this time last year. Thanks

This is actually a report from last Saturday. Has anyone noticed how clear the water is ? Lake Marie secchi disk test showed almost 6 feet transparency. Maybe I need glasses. Is this a zebra mussel thing ? We caught some stripers (huge ones) on mini-mites tipped with minnows and also some perch. Too windy to stay out very long. IC

Went catching on Monday 5/11 between the storms and fronts at the Mouth of the Fox. Besides the weather and wind, fishing was unbelievable, couldn't get my lines in the water fast enough. I cast with one and dead stick with a bobber with the other. Had two doubles by myself which was very very interesting. Ended with 3 @ 22, 2 @ 17, and multiple multiple 16s, 15s, 14s. Was a multi-species day channel cats, lm bass, bluegill, and baa baa sheep. Went back out after the second front and nothing. More consistent weather coming next week. I might have a rain day with work tomorrow and I'll be out. Good meeting the young gentlemen on the boat who were steering me down with binoculars every time the net came out. Felt honored that they asked for my advice and wanting me to take them catching.
