Hit the lake around 645 am in my kayak. Did some searching around in deep water for a while looking for whitebass. Got nothing deep so went shallower and started finding big gills and a few perch mixed in in 15fow. Used ice jigs and spikes and ended with 13 gills 4 perch and 1 whitebass. Lots of little 7 inch yellowbass all over the place. Tight lines and stay safe on the water.

Real beauty there BGK. Wall hanger I assume?? Definently worthy of it, perhaps once in a lifetime fish there. Congrats!

Scanning Kegonsa for a bit this morning, and actually fished for a little bit. Saw some gills over some structure and some smaller Walleyes. Lost a couple of the gills before I could get them in the boat to measure them, caught one 12" walleye. Then back to scanning! Water temp at 3' is 78.5°F, at 25' it was 75°F. Weed cutters in the river, lots of cut crap blown into Fish Camps landing. The weed removal sign is gone from Fish Camp as well as the removal tools. Luckily I carry a golf ball retrieval tool in the boat so I was able to get the hanging weeds off. The person running the cutter did pull into the launch and tried to pick up the floating weeds, don't know how successful they were though. The county (or someone) did put a ramp on each of the piers so you can walk out without getting your feet wet. Water clarity as expected very poor but a beautiful morning to be out! Rick

Tuesday was a good gill bite, most caught in 6-7 ft. few bass andeyes. hate those bass. Too many in lake, hurts gill population in my opinion

I fished the Keg last Thursday and Friday. Caught a bunch of short eyes, some small smallmouth between 12 and 16", and a mixture of gills too large or small to keep.

Big algae bloom on Kegonsa, green soup. Water temp at 3' this morning was 79°F, in 31 FOW it was 71°F. Checked a couple of cribs and they were barren. I was lazy this morning and slept in and with no wind and the sun beating down I didn't stay real long. Didn't mark many fish.

As an FYI, they're adding large stone to areas around the lake, have a barge that takes up the launch area while they're using the boom to load the rocks onto the barge. Luckily for me they stopped pulling into the launch area when I was coming back in so I could quickly load and get out (this was at Fish Camp). The guy said they'll be there about a month or so, so if you use Fish Camp you might have a wait to launch or load. They were very courteous to the guy launching his boat and me, but obviously they can't wait for everyone. So patience may be required!
