Out scanning Waubesa for a while this morning. Pretty windy so not much in the way of boat traffic. Water temp at 3' was 64.8°F. Dropped the camera down about a dozen times checking out hits on the side scan. Water clarity very poor from 6 FOW to 20 FOW (as deep as I checked today). Quite a few carp stirring things up plus all this wind doesn't help. Numerous schools of panfish seen on the side scan. Didn't check any structure like I originally planned, too windy even with the i-Pilot Link, didn't want to smuck the new camera into cribs or metal structure. Rick

Minkota Ipilot with spotlock feature or 1 anchor out of the stern and the other anchor out of the bow. In addition, point the bow of the boat into the wind while anchored.

How windy do you guys think is too windy? I took off the end of this week to get out fishing, but it looks like there is suppose to be pretty steady 15mph winds both days. Too windy to fish effectively? I'm assuming boat control won't be too easy. any strategies to fishing in the wind?

Very nice fish C-junkie, thanks for posting. 

Does anyone have a current weed/gunk report?  Are they all over the middle of the lake like they were this spring?  Walleye trolling was tough with them everywhere.

MOON PHASE
First Quarter

CONDITIONS
Raining

AIR TEMP
71° - 75° F

WATER TEMP
76° - 80° F

Bit late with the report but got out Wednesday after waiting for for a storm cell with lightning to pass around 6:20 am. Long story short, 4  8" gills after 5 1/2 hours. Kind of explains why only one other trailer in the Lake Farm lot. Worked the weed lines off Hog, fished the bottom flats off Hog in 21 fow, drifted across the middle (three missed hits), fished the east side near the launch, and ended the day in Upper Mud. Even the runts were scarce. Going to take a leave of absence until the water cools down (76.2 degrees Wed) Been really dead for us the last three outings fishing once a week and driving out from Milwaukee. Tight lines.
