Did some game fishing last night. Water temps were down to 61, the deeper weeds around Maple and up Blackhawk haven't exploded to last year's levels yet. Pike and LMB were decently active for 3 hours of fishing for 3 people. Caught 6 total, had 2 solid hits that did not hook up.
Reminder that June 11 is the Big Bass Blast (run by Big Sacks Bass Club). This is an open tournament. Biggest Bass Wins (number of places paid will be determined by number of boats fishing).

I fished Fox on friday and today. Caught a lot of good bass on Friday on spinner baits and cranks I also had blow ups on buzz baits but I didnt hook any. We also caught a baby tiger musky on Friday. Today the bite was a lot different and I just couldnt get those bass to chase anything. We had a 6 degree water temp drop from the rain and cold. The vid here shows half fox and the 2nd half is Lake Emily. If you check out my channel I also have the vid from friday up.

Fished most of the day today. Did ok this morning on walleyes mostly slip bobbering and some trolling. ~ 15 walleye, 15 northern, 20 perch, and a couple bass. I got 1-19inch walleye and 5 perch between 8 1/2 and 12 inch for dinner. The rest are swimming. Nice day and not a lot of boats today.

Did a little game fishing yesterday 7-11:30. Tried Kuno shoreline for, marked some fish but no takers along the weedline area. Moved north of Maple, caught 8 pike and 3 lmb, had quite a bit of fun. Twitch baits were the most productive, in line spinners did ok. Don't know if the location was the key to finding fish or the wind change from the south to the west turned them on. Saw some interesting dead fish, a walleye that appeared to choke itself of a blue gill, was around 18" long, and a 38" musky that appeared to have an injury to it's cheek like a prop maybe hit it. Other boats were doing typical things, trolling the edges of the deep water, fishing around the islands, bassers were working tight to shore with plastics, some drifters before the wind picked up. Unfortunately the weeds will be the same as last year, Kuno has a distinct weedline @ 6 fow already, Devils Island to Maple is filling in but they are still submergent and north of Dead Island is like the weeds never died.

Fished for 2 1/2 hrs. after work tonight. Found a couple of each walleye, northern, bass, and perch all trolling 9-10 foot weed edges. All still swimming. I tried slip bobbers with crawlers and couldn't get anything. didn't have leeches along, but have done ok in the past on those.
The weeds are coming in like they did last year. In a couple weeks everything under 11 ft will be solid weeds. It's tough to find pockets as it is now.
