Friday, Mike and Polly from Racine joined me for a morning on "Pete". Mike's siblings supplied the trip as a birthday gift. We fished dead rods and jigs tipped with large fat-heads and crawlers along steep channel edges in 16-20 feet of water. Finished with 6 "keepers", two of them at 19 3/4", at least a dozen "shorties", 2 perch, one was 12 1/2", a nice size crappie, and a sheep's head. 

Keep a tight line!!!

Took a few guys out that were new to Petenwell. We got a really late start after finishing up class at Ft. McCoy. We launched from tenth street landing around 4 and went north to start. We made a few trolling passes and only picked up a cat and a couple short eyes and a crappie. We moved along the east shore and pulled boards again and got a couple legal eyes and a 21 inch slot with a few more shorts. We ended the night right before the storm rolled in pitching plastics up onto a wind blown steep break close to the launch and put another two legal walleyes, two more shorts and about 10 white bass in the boat. Not to bad for a few hours with three guys new to trolling and jigging this system.

Bob, thank you for your note.  Made my day and reminded me that fishing isn't always about the fish but meeting people impacting everything good in the sport. Funny last week I had the tools to help another fellow fisherman tighten up his boat trailer rollers in Vilas county.

 Fished for musky on usual spots in river 10-4.   Not green but cloudy water.  During the weather transition a 26 musky hot. The real surprise was at end of day on the last spot near the landing.  A 40 inch northern.  Fought and felt like a gator. My personal best.  Both crushed a reelmeincustombait crank perch.  One tough bass bait.

Chuck from Rome, WI booked a morning trip on "Pete" along with his grandson Jacob and Jacob's wife Hanna. It was extremely foggy at 6:30 when we launched from the county park. It was so thick you could hardly see 100 yards until 9:30 before it started to lift. We soaked dead rods and jigged in 17-20 feet of water around submerged timber and finished with 2 "keepers", some nice white bass, and a bunch of sheep's head. 

Keep a tight line!!!

Dustin and Samantha Brooks from central Illinois booked a full day guide trip with me today on "Pete" I have fish with Dustin and Samantha a few times in the past.

Today I picked up the Brooks at 5:30 am ran north and launched the boat just before 6 am from Wilderness County park. Water temp was only 68.5 in the early morning and around 74 when we left the lake around 4 pm. Kind of a cool wet day, wind was out of the north/west the entire trip.

Today we started trolling cranks and boards, mid morning we switched it up and jigged for a few hours. Late afternoon we switched back over to trolling.

Anyone looking to get out, I have August- 7th,8th,13th,18, and 19 still open!

Good luck, be safe!
