Good afternoon. Last week between Tuesday night and Saturday night (7/9 through 7/13) I had a 7 rods and reels stolen from my garage on Jefferson Street a block from the school.

The items stolen include:

Abu Garcia Revo Toro Winch loaded with red power pro line and a St. Croix Triumph Medium Heavy rod. I believe it was either 7 foot or 7 foot 6 inches. The rod was outfitted with a flasher fly combo. Green and white salmon fly and a chartreuse flasher. Prior to the theft from garage I was using this for salmon trolling out of my kayak on the great lakes.

Abu Garcia C3 Bait casting reel loaded with green power pro line on a medium heavy 6 foot or 6 foot 6 inch Gander Guide Series rod. This rod had either a scatter rap or another crank.

Two Gander Mountain GSX Titanium 2 reel on Gander Advantage Rod. The rod is maroon in color and if I remember they are 7 feet long. 1 Piece combos. If I remember correctly I had 10lb braid on the reels which are gold spools and green reels. \

They also walked off with a Zebco 22 or 202 can remember which version which the reel is metallic blue.

A shakespear spinning rod with a trigger finger release.

Lastly they walked off with green Cabelas rod and reel combo.

There had been two younger boys hanging around my apartment complex buzzing all the apartments. They claimed their grandmother lived in the complex but long time residents did not recognize the children.

I would appreciate the return of my items.

PS the revo toro has a ton of sand in it so if you do plan on keeping the stolen items at lease get it cleaned.

If you have any information on these items I can be reached through pm or phone call at 920 344 8937. No questions asked.

Couldn't catch anything yesterday other than catfish. The bass, walleye, and crappie bite that was dropping off slowly since the last moon phase evolved to no bite at all. Catfish were a tick larger than average though - all fish between 19 & 25 inches. Did my part, at least, reducing the forked tail population in BDL by 10.

Baits Motel Busy week here Baits, and the Kayak Lady's other shop By The Dam Bait (yeah, it's by the dam) lol. The big story this last week, and especially yesterday has been the big swing over to medium and small leeches for bluegills. From Lake Emily to Fox Lake, Beaver Dam Lake, down to Fall River and everywhere else in between, those fishing with small leeches have been hammering the gills. Last year it was orange ice fishing jigs an wax worms. This year, it's been small leeches. For the gills here on BD the difference has been reported to us as night and day. We are still going through a lot of wax worms and smaller, thinner red worms for bluegill spinners, but the small to medium leech thing has really been the ticket. Nothing going on here or by the other store by the dam with rock flies/thunder bugs or helgramites, so I am just going to go out on a limb here and say the perch haven't been cooperating very well anywhere for the most part. We went through a ton of small fatheads yesterday. I know a lot of home owners on both Fox Lake and Beaver Dam were just planning on chilling out on their piers, but we had lots of customers coming in and buying 3 4 and 5 dozen small fatheads. That means crappies were on the bite again. Of course if you are fishing with fatheads and leeches, you are bound to catch a walleye now and then, and of course some lovely catfish. This weekend also saw a huge increase on Target Frog, and all of our different frog baits. The bass are really pounding them on Beaver Dam, Fox Lake, and Emily. We fished this past 2 weeks with Scum Frogs and had a lot of fun watching the bass hit them and toss them in the air. Then I add a trailer/stinger and hooked them up pretty solidly. Small stuff, but fun for me anyway. I first ran a treble hook off the back of mine, but that takes away the snag resistance, so use a single, and you can still glide over the top of the moss and weeds. I would expect that over the holiday weekend, we are going to be stocking pretty heavily on small and medium leeches. The Jumbos are very expensive right now still, and we just aren't seeing walleye results on them any more than on panfish leeches. We have been hearing good results on cats out on Edgewater from the crew using our big Canadian crawlers especially the big green crawlers. Green crawlers. I don't know what they put in them to make them so hardy, so green, and soooooo lively, but they want to push the tops off the containers and go fishing. The northerns are doing a lot of bite offs too, for the guys out catfishing with the green crawlers. Well that's it for now. I don't know what the hours are planned for at the By The Dam Bait Shop (by the dam)lol, but I think we are going to be open regular hours from 5 am til 6 or 7 pm on the 4th. The pool is green anyway, so why not spend the day here counting bugs. Again we thank you all, and have a great holiday. Please don't litter.

Does anyone know anything about the catfish tournament that was supposedly held on June 22nd? Interested in knowing how it all went/was, who sponsored it, rules, etc. I heard about it too late. You can PM me if you prefer. Thanx.

They were doing better on the north end of the shore. Most likely because of the waves slapping up on the rocks. Does it seem like we just bombed out or did I do something wrong? I thought I would catch plenty of fish drifting crawlers. Are there a lot of sheepshead in there?? White Bass? I'm looking to smoke channel cats, carp, suckers, or white Bass.

Went to Edgewater Park last weekend June 8 and 9th from shore, many fishing for catfish but I did not see any caught. But did see a guy next to me hammering some nice walleyes on Slip bobber and leeches during the day on Saturday right off the rocks on shore, I came back in the evening a got a small flathead and about 6 crappie. Sunday morning I limted out on 7-9 inch crappie with 1 inch gulp/slip bobber close to shore.

Went fishing for the first time on B.D Lake. Two of us fished 12-3:30 PM. We drifted with crawlers and anchored for a while I caught one 10" catfish and my son caught one walleye 10" Not the best time to go but with the dark skies I thought we would have something to bring home. We fished the west end. What did we do wrong????

Fished for an hour this a.m. off shore. Water clarity is much worse than when I fished here last week. Only one crappie today, 2 cats and a bullhead on crawlers. Had a big fish on (minnow) broke my line (prob. a nort) Stopped by the dam to watch below--saw a guy catch a real nice northern.
