As far as the lake Trout bite this year particular I've done better jigging than trolling. The few times we've targeted Trout lately, jigging has gotten our bites. The trout bite usually really picks up for us the month of September with lots of big fish.

The smallmouth bite has been totally wind depending on the style and depth we approach each day. A little bit wind goes a long ways for faster action but we just slide deeper to catch them on the calm days. Some of the biggest smallies have been coming from 30 plus feet of water lately.

Went trolling early morning to the afternoon last couple Saturdays. Tried deep ledges with downriggers and boards.could only catch a few of those jumbo white bass. Nothing on the riggers. Threw quite a few spoons at the Lakers and was actively changing the depth of my DR balls. 40-140. Can't seem to buy a laker bite out here. Any advice on spoons or colors or different flashers that work would be appreciated. Feel free to PM me. Also caught smallies 10-20 feet on rocks. Leeches worked best for me. Tight lines!

Fished for a week straight on Big Green 8/6-8/12.

Weather was hot and humid. Surface water temps ranged from 78-84 degrees depending on location/time of day/wind direction.

Targeted LMB caught a decent amount throughout the week, but not the quality we were looking for or have caught in previous years. Biggest was 4lb 10oz. Did catch a few SMB and Northern mixed in but no size to them either. All fish were caught on artificial lures and released.

Various lures and techniques were used throughout the week. We stuck to depth ranges of 0-15ft. Mainly for confidence in fishing style and poor sonar. With the weather as hot as it has been all summer, quantity and quality fish i'm sure are in the cooler deep water. 

There was a high volume of boating/fishing pressure all week with a tournament at the beginning of our week and another at the end of the week. Various parts of the lake had boats stacked on each other.

My best luck for smallies has been in 10 to 15 feet of water, drifting with minnows or leaches on a single hook with a light split shot weight, bouncing the bait on a relatively clear bottom. Spots have included the southwest shore of Norwegian bay (near the huge 30 foot pontoon that is docked there), the bay at Sandstone and along the shore near Horner's landing. Heidle House shore has worked as well, though not as often. Good luck.

Was out on the 15ft-20ft drop and edge of weeds. No luck for gills yet. (or any action )

Did hook up with one bite, it was a  4-5 lb catfish which was released; this has been the  3rd one I caught in the last two week of fishing. I am guessing I need to go deeper for gills. Surf temp was 80 deg F; flys were sort of nasty and fish were jumping. nice night to be out. Attached is the cat I caught on Aug 1st.

I've been getting them in 20-30 fow on slip bobbers fishing for gills. All have come on the tail end of night crawlers, throw the head away, or you will just catch rock bass

The last time I fished for smallies in August we used live hellgrammites just off the bottom in 30 fow +/-   

Good luck!
