Went twice this past week, once early and once at dusk. Same result, despite clouds and light winds (though cool temps). Numerous snake northerns, an occasional 20"+, and very scarce bass. DNR has begun fixing posts and signs for cordoned-off area on south and south west end of lake. Early goose hunting coming soon.

A tale by a friend and avid fisherman on the lake: sometime this summer a local who lives on the lake caught and landed a BIG northern in Bass Bay; took a photo and then released it. Purported size was 51"!! I think some exaggeration in length was applied. Nevertheless, I sure would like to see the photo on Lake-Link. Big Smile

Went out Saturday morning at 6:30AM. Missed a lot of hits but managed a couple of snake northerns and a couple LMB. Biggest fish was a 18" LMB. The wind picked up around 10AM which made it real hard to use any top water and stay positioned in the kayak. Was off by 10:30AM

I left my kayak paddle at the dock at Boxhorn Gun club launch. Was hoping someone found it. If so please PM me. I can describe the paddle.

Thanks!

Went out for a few hours and tied into a ton of snakes and a few nice bass. Mostly right away early in the morning on the typical topwater stuff.

Anyone notice the lack of weeds on bass bay? Did the dnr do something to this water? Completely different from the past years I've fished here.

Thanks for the note, GotGills?. When I am interested in panfish, I do check out Bass Bay. However, at this time of year the quest is for bass/pike and I prefer the lily pads and Big Lake. Big Lake fishing really improved these past two days with excellent morning conditions--very cloudy, hazy, light rain, and light winds. Fished both mornings with plenty of action on the surface. Some of the best areas though were hard-to-get-to weedy areas in far south end. Boaters beware of old DNR sign posts in the water. Hopefully all of these will be upright this approaching hunting season.

Made it out for the first time in 4 weeks and had another good day. Ended up with 11 and 11. The largest northern were 26, 28, 28, 30, 32 and 33. Largest bass was 19 with another 6 between 15 and 17.

Saw the bald eagle flying not too far overhead - always a welcome sight.

As always, pood luck to all.

Overall fishing the past week has really slowed down. Each trip has had the same result: very early morning bite, especially northerns. Nice sized fish, but only a few. Bass for the most part are at some convention! Some areas of the lake that produced last year are so thick with weed growth they are near impassable. Possibly a weather change would help. A number of boats have been bobber-fishing in Bass Bay. Any report on successes there would be helpful.

Was out for 4 hours on Saturday (the 25th) morning. Got 8 fish. Five pike (largest was 24") all on Whopper Plopper and 3 LM bass. A 14" bass on scumfrog in pads. Two remaining bass, 18" and 12", also on Whopper Plopper.

Sun was out for last hour and the bite died off quickly.

Went out with the son to Bass Bay, with 3 casts I knew I had a good size Northern on, got him up to the boat, he took a shake of his head and swam away, he was at least 30", very fat fish. I was using a large daredevil, red and white. Had a few follow ups to the boat on northerns and LMB, nothing we could seal the deal on , all shook free at the boat.....except for the 8" crappie that took my 4" daredevil !!! I don't know if I've ever seen that before !! Talked to a few people, not a lot being caught today. BTW, we launched at Hunters nest, the weeds in the big lake are getting pretty bad, had to clear the prop a number of times.

Out yesterday slop fishing....Have a 14 foot Aluminum boat this year instead of the kayaks, so can get all over in no time.

We have been Northern and Bass machines this year. Largest Northern 32 1/2", Bass 17 ". Mepps inline spinners # 2 or #3. Yellow. Also Frogs. My son made a Donkey Rig yesterday and it was the killer bait.. ...when we had open water to use it.

2 unusual catches yesterday...29 1/2 " 9 lb Bowfin, caught in the slop on a frog....and the 4 inch Perch, on the Daredevil...crazy.

Everyone be safe and check your trailers when you leave....

Been busy with the kids and grandkids this summer and am way behind on fishing. Made it out today for only the 5th time this year.

Had a great day. Ended up with 17 pike, including 26", 28', 29', 29', 30', 32' and a fat 34". Also caught 3 bass - 15", 16" and 17". Got an 8 inch perch (on a 2 &1/2 " storm subwart). Finally, I also caught a big bowfin - 32 inches long and as thick as my thigh. It fought like heck and was actually the most fun to catch.

Almost hit a big snapping turtle in the kayak not too far from the Boxhorn launch.

Good luck to all!

So I go to launch at Big M today, and someone standing on the pier tells me "workers" have been removing some invasive algae from around the launch area. (Boxhorn's)

I have a 14 foot fishing boat. Normally, I just reverse it out a ways, then forward to where I'm going. Well, today I needed my always handy push pole to get me out of the launch area due to a bunch of muddy looking weeds.

I'm out for 5 hours. Catch my usual bunch of fish, which I release, except for some "over 8 inch" crappies, that looked tasty, and headed back to the launch.

So I'm cleaning the weeds off my prop, and sure enough, there they are. Stringy seaweed with the little 6 pointed white 1/8" stars.

This is serious stuff. It was like a sponge. On Big M, once it gets going around the launch and chokes up some of the channels it's C'est la vie for motor craft.

Boxhorn is where we were, I have launched at the nest and we always pay because it's required.

As for paying because it's the right thing to do, I think that is very noble and some day when I can afford it I will probably do the same thing. But it is not required so to get a message like that is just annoying. I drive on Muskego roads all the time and don't live there, I am not about to start making donations every time I cross into Muskego to help maintain the roads!

But if you really want to see how I do my part, I'll show the grocery bag of garbage I picked up out of the lake and from the launch!
