Moved around a lot fishing the weed edges. Targeting gills /crappies ended up catching walleyes and smallies. 1 token perch for the panfish crowd. Single splitshot with a gold #6 hook with a hunk of crawler hanging over the side did the trick. Wasn't fast and furious but kept us occupied did best by the bible camp. Most of the fish caught in less than 10 fow.

Sorry this isn't a fishing report, but I was so glad to see your "Take a Vet Fishing" day was amazing I just wanted to say thank you to all who participated.  We can't do enough for them.

Great day on the water for Take a vet fishing event today. Along with my two vets Dan and Jerry, we put 24 Largemouth (12-18") and 3 small pike in the boat.

Water was a mess, and we had to fish the inside weed edge. We caught most of our fish in very, very shallow, in areas with limited weeds.

See you next year.

I am out of town but in the future I would love to help out with Veteran fishing events. I am a six tour combat veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Any thoughts on where I can find information on these events?

thanks

Tom

Chris- There is floating vegetation in  shallow bays. There is also slop floating around the lake making a mess of trolling. Surface temp was in the upper 70's earlier this week.The weed edges are at about 8 to 9 feet of water. The water in a lot of areas is still fairly clear for this time of year. We have 2 WWII vets and 4 Korean War Vets with us tomorrow. I usually fish walleye, but we are targeting pan fish tomorrow. any tips would be appreciated

Coming into town tomorrow for Take a Vet Fishing. I was wondering if there were any reports on water temp and how the weeds/surface slop was looking.

I have a pretty good idea where I'll fish tomorrow, but just wanted to get a feel for conditions, especially with the weather we've had.

Thanks in advance.
