Thursday morning on the willow flowage was extremly foggy untill 10 am . I had clients Rory and Joe Clevland from the tomahawk area. We caught our 9 fish limit of walleyes from 16 to 18 inches in about 2 hours from 8 am to 10 am. All fish except one came on jigs and crawlers in one spot.

Fished Sat morning and early afternoon. Caught 11 nice crappies from 12 - 14 inches. Fished Sun morning and had a limit of crappies before 9 AM. I launched at Sportsman's Landing both days. The water was up to where you were launching at the billboard but it fell overnight and Sunday it was a little harder to launch. Deep wood was where I found them on Sat. but Sun they were shallower in 8-12 feet. Seemed a little strange as the water was dropping but the fish were more aggressive. A good way to end the year.
FYI I took the kids for a get away last weekend. WE camped near 4 islands Friday and Saturday night. WE fished a bit, not a lot of luck but we caught a couple 18" smallies. Would have been nice to catch dinner, but we had a great time. The campsite was in really nice shape and we left it the same. On another note, my "helper" lost my anchor, lol. If anyone catches a black and orange anchor with black and green rope and want to find it's owner, I would love it back.

Well put. We put up with the same crap every year we come up for our yearly. Some people just don't get it or appreciate what they have. You didn't mention the bugs so I hope that means you didn't need a blood transfusion went you got home.
