I'm told they took the buoys out for the year. Be careful out there. As you are exiting the channel, there are nasty boulders off to the left. The right's not as rocky, but still real shallow. Best to just head straight out from the channel till you are a good 50 yards or more off shore. Keep the motor up and go slow. Seen too many props mangled on that stupid rock. Twice I've seen folks nearly thrown overboard after hitting it real hard.

I nailed my prop going down the channel at Babcock the other day. The buoys are in for the year. I made a rookie mistake and forgot to trim up before entering the channel on my way in. I launch there often and should have known better.

Yes they have bait at BP.  Watch your prop heading out of Babcock if you dont normally launch there.

I usually put in at goodland, never have put in at Babcock. Planning on putting in at babcock on Friday. Do they sell minnows at the BP across the street? or where is the closest place to get minnows from babcock?

The piers stay in at Babcock year round, they lock the gate when they decide the seasons over.

Anyone know if the piers are still in at babcock? Any walleye action over on that side of the lake? Thinking about getting the boat out for the full moon tomorrow.

Went out last night targeting weed flats.  Fished from 7-2am it was beautiful.  Very surprised we got no big eyes.  3 small ones from 12-15”.   Had a 45-50” Muskie up near boat before he stole a jerkbait.  Lots of big carp moving shallow.  Bow guys could clean house!

Does anyone have room in the boat for a mid 20s guy this afternoon or evening. Have poles and tackle will buy bait, gas, beer etc. Thanks. Ideally bass, walleye or musky fisherman

Fished yesterday from 12:30 to 3. Found a somewhat protected spot from the wind with the kayak and had a great day. Caught 20+ fish and missed a BUNCH more. All gills besides one nice perch. Kept 12 for the fryer and the rest are still swimming. Waxies and big reds with a green jig was very effective. Plain hook with big red generated a few bites but nothing like the green did. 9-11FOW.

Best of luck, FH
