Like everything else. All good things must come to an end. Did get to fish Friday night with No-Wake still effect. Ski team will be done in three weeks. 

Typical outing for me on Friday night. Mostly gills. Although I did have version IV of Lake Wolf attack. Had a spinner on when all of a sudden it felt much heavier. Battled for a good minute until the ski let it go. Estimate fish to be over thirty but not much girth on it. Gill was still in pretty good condition and is still swimming.

I usually have a couple of Lake Wolf attacks a year but I've already had four this year where I've had the fish on. Also several other bite offs while pulling in fish.  More than normal I guess but it's always an adrenaline producer when you get a ski on the end of your line. But not enough to make me a muskie fisherman. Rat

Out last night, tried my old tried and true weed line on east side, only dink perch and small gills, moved over by Olbrich beach around 7 pm, marked tons in 13-14 ft sat there for 30 minutes and caught nice gills and perch, but only couple keepers wish I had started there, seemed the hot spot. Had lindy rig out in hopes to snag a wally or something bigger, but nothing hit. Usually at least pick up a bass or northern, not last night!

I took my boy out from 9am to 2pm just out from olbrich.  We marked allot but didn't get much.  We stayed in the 15/16 foot range.  Green nail tails with a redworm was working best.  I putted out to 20 foot and holy cow the screen was lit up from 10 -20 foot, however the only thing we got out there were dinks.  Went home with 10 pretty nice fish.

Just checked the Dane County website and Monona has been removed from the slow- no-wake as of 8/12 which is actually tomorrow , so might be safe to wait till after midnite tonight before you give er .
