Well I just watched my video and noticed it was the worst editing job ever. I put the pike in twice and forgot to include the big bass. My kid had a gopro on he will get a better video and upload it this weekend LOL
I went out for a short trip with my kid and one of his friends today. The kids wanted to fish for panfish to try and catch a meal for lunch. They both caught a lot of bluegills and a few perch. We really had to sort through them to find fish big enough to keep. It is hard for me to sit anchored in one place but I made the best of it and tried casting for bigger fish while they fished for panfish. I actually ended up with 5 bass and a pike. Two of the bass went 18 inches so that was awesome.
Hi! I hope their is someone on here that doesn't mind helping a fellow fisherman out. I am taking my father fishing at Fox Lake on Wednesday. He is 83 and has mild Parkinson's and is in stage 4 of kidney failure. He has spent most of my life taking my mother and us 4 kids there for vacation a couple times a year.We started by staying at Schimel's(don't remember how it was spelled) Then Jesko's and then Twin Shores. We actually helped the Slawny's build the new bar. Great memories on that lake!!
Sorry for story time!
I would like to know how the fishing has been lately(crappies,northerns and walleyes). We will be renting a boat from Fish Tales. Dad likes to soak suckers for northerns...is there a better spot to try than any other?
Any information will be truly appreciated!(especially be my dad)
Feel free to PM me
Thank you in advance!
Good luck and good fishing!!

The winning fish for the tournament on sunday was 4.97 pounds. We ended up with 16 boats. Sounds like everyone caught a bunch of fish. Thanks to everyone that participated.

Caught a good number of bass. Mostly shallow targeting shorelines that weren't too choked. A few around the 3 lb range but most were 1-2 lbers. Buddy hooked into something big and toothy. As soon as fish turned to run the line snapped.Tough to stay out of the wind on Saturday. Swells were bigger than I have ever seen them. 18 ft bass boat and had a few waves come crashing over the side a few times.
How was the tourney? Biggest fish? Didn't seem like too many boats turned out.
Also the old Fish 'n Fun looks like construction is done. New bar? If so any date on when it will open?
Question about the vegetation.....it certainly has not filled in like last year, has certain areas been treated for weeds? The launch off Blackhawk driving south sure looks like were was a reduction in the weeds in the no wake zone.
