Bass appear to be finished spawning, lots of fry up shallow on sunday/monday. Hopefully it was a good year. Crappies are good right now. Also saw two muskies on a bed. 

Has anyone noticed the brand new police/patrol boat? Seems like a complete waste of money, Ive never ever seen the lake patrol address the idiots on the lake. excessive speeds, ignorant operation you name it.. all they do is drive around and check for their stupid sticker/use permits... A weed cutter would have been better investment than a brand new patrol boat...

Went to the Promenade area on May 1st and caught this excellent May Day Bass. Hit on a nightcrawler. Thought it was another pesky gill until I got it closer in and it surfaced. Imagine my surprise! Used a trout wooden landing net and it barely fit in the opening. No measuring tape, but it went from the crook of of my arm almost to my fingertips.   LZ

Have seen the yellow bass in the lake since 1975.

I'm not saying that's what's happening here but in a lot of lakes when the yellow bass start showing up in numbers it's a sign of deteriorating lake conditions.

Caught three of these striped bass from the Paulus Park pier on Monday. Been fishing Lake Zurich for years and never caught one before.  Anyone else catching them? Are they good for the lake?

I'd say close to half the lake is open water and looking at the weather forecast two weeks out, I think hard water is a thing of the past. I'm going to try minnows and lure casting this coming week and see what gives.

Caught this beast 7 years ago or so off paulus park.  It was the year when they built those annoying walking paths. I would say this muskie would go 36" or so. Was unhooked and released healthy. Same day my buddy caught a 22" tiger as well. Also released. Not the best quality video guys. Sorry you may have to copy and paste the link onto your browser.
