Went to butternut on from 20th to the 27th of August ,fished hard using slip bobbers and a crawler,then switched to bottom fishing with crawler,then trolling Chuck's worms ,no luck on any of them .only luck we had was baby perch and crayfish.You definitely need a depth finder in this lake to find the rock bars ,also a sturdy boat as it is a very windy lake ,locals say it's been a tough year for them too ,we had a nice vacation but disappointed in the fishing ,lot of hours in the boat with nothing to show for it??

How's the smallmouth bite been? Looking to hit Butternut again before summer is over.

Went on Saturday (7/20/13), slow fishing for the time I was out (10am-3pm). Used Drop-shot with crawler and caught around 6 smallies, all 7-10 inches. Saw hundreds of yearling smallies and some rock bass and gills. The man working at the boat landing said that the lake had been slow for a week or two.

I hope the bite picks up soon! Feel free to let me know if it does!

Again, I am trying to improve my bass fishing and was wondering if anyone could give me any more advice about fishing Butternut. I am coming back next weekend, so I am just looking for a little advice. Thank you!

On my last trip I caught a few on a dropshot with nightcrawler in 20 FOW.

WOW..........Sad! I'm sure this was not Darin's idea of a fishing web page, when he first had the idea of starting one.

Well Gunner moron, the words you quoted, "on this thread" should be enough said....in case your pea brain hadn't noticed this is a different thread but morons from the Shawano Lake moron saturated thread (which I no longer even insult my intelligence by viewing) still follow. Go get some therapy. Wingnut.

Was out on the nut last week Monday. Mayfly hatch in prior two or so days didn't help anything...mayfly hulls all over surface...in a few hours only one dink smallie and a 17" smallie near some cribs in about 12 or 14 fow. Wish I would have stayed till dark....topwater bite can be a blast. (Went to Kentuck for a few hours Tuesday and hammered a dozen or so 16 to 17 1/2" largemouth with a few smallies up to 17 1/2" thrown in. Algae bloom on Kentuck, warmer water, notice of pesticides sprayed and smelly dead panfish on shore by campground landing...)
