My experiences with guide, Jesse Quale, recently, and in the past on the ice, have been true pleasures. This guide is extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of Lake Petenwell offering over 30 years of insight. He works diligently towards providing a positive experience through his efforts, wisdom, sharing, and top notch equipment. Even after the guide trip Jesse is always available to you for continued support. I highly recommend Jesse as a guide, and I very much look forward to spending more time with him as a means towards improving my skills.

Was out today on a full day guide trip with todd,jerry. Todd booked for two days and jerry joined us for the trip today. We hit the water at 6am today. Wind was blowing hard from the south. Water temp was 69 to start the day. When we left the big pond around 3pm the water temp was only 74. Water temp really dropped with all the cold rain we got last night. Lake is really green in some spots. Also there is alot of trash floating around on the main lake. We trolled cranks and boards all day. #4 hornets worked the best. Ended the day with a nice mess of fish. friday night. Big Smile Big Smile

I was out 8/13, 8/14, and 8/16 for the first times after getting my boat rigged up for trolling. I boated lots of fish each day trolling the 10'-15' depths with #5,6,7 flicker shads, but only got 3 small walleyes each day. What am I doing wrong? I would appreciate any insight, I don't want exact spots, just a idea. I was running out 25-35' under the board. Also, I am running a 9 year old lakemaster chip in my Lowrance 332c, what chips do u guys use for this lake? Hopefully it is compatible with my older unit. Thanks in advance for any info!! Rae

Here is one from a half day trip after work. If you don't have time to get out much and want to put a muskie in the boat, We can probably make that happen.

Todd booked a half day guide trip with me today on petenwell . We hit the water at 6am today. Wind was blowing good from the east.Water temp was 70 at 6am and when we left at noon it was 75. We started out trolling #4,#5 flickers for the first couple hours. We later ran to the to jig. We didnt stay long in the river a couple storms pushed threw. After storms went by we ran back out to the main lake and trolled boards and cranks till noon. Second time we ran out to the main lake the wind switched to the south and the lake was very rough. The green was on its way up from the south end. Only had a few spots to fish out of the green slim. We still managed to catch some fish with the cold front and storms pushing threw. Ended the day with 20 plus white bass,2 crappies,3 cats,3 goats,15 short eyes and 1 keeper. Big Smile Big Smile

Did the trolling thing yesterday for 4 hours (not my favorite way to fish). Two nice slots, one just under 20", and one foot long. Also some white bass, sheep, and a cat. Most fish pulled out of 8-12 feet suspended down about 5'. Color didn't matter. Wife pulled them all in while I handled the boat and boards. Pics didn't download properly.

Eric from the Chicago area booked a morning trip on "Pete" for today. Really cool start to the morning, only 47 when we launched. Jigged a couple of spots on the channel edges on the south end with very little success. Tried minnows and leeches but nothing doing so we put the planer boards in the water and trolled. Ended the morning with 12 "shorties", 1 in the slot, 4 crappies, 5 white bass, 15 cat, and 3 sheephead. Big Smile
