Fished with KT and we casted crank baits in the rain. We hit a few spots before we headed to the bar for beers. KT caught a 25.5 her biggest so far this year.

Got out for a little bit today for a few hours. Caught plenty of walleyes but two keepers.Fishing slip bobbers and leeches over sunken brush piles. Plenty of crappies still hanging out over the deeper edges as well.

Fishing is starting to pick up as water temperatures warm again.

The lake level is almost a full pool.

June is right around the corner. Fishing is going to be crazy in the next month. If you want to get on this action, give me a call. Good luck, tight lines and God bless our servicemen! TC

Conditions: Partly Sunny
Fished Walleye the flowage the past few days- daytime bite is decent in the brush in 12-18 foot. Keeper Walleye are still shallow compared to the deeper- but this can change day to day based on weather conditions- a chop or heavy clouds will push them in shallow water-still and high sun will push them deeper unless there in weeds. I'm fishing both east and West sides. Fish are scattered- good action at each spot I tried- but the bite slows after 30 minutes- possibly spooking the fish or just catching the aggressive fish. Its important to not over fish a spot holding fish. I just move on and try it later. Leeches are out fishing minnows for me-still using 1/8 jigs or slip bobbers. Crank baits are good in certain areas at dusk or low light and will be good for another three weeks or until weeds get to high for shoreline fishing. I'm looking forward to trolling a little starting July 1st-1 line. I have done this on Nelson and Grindstone for years with very good success. Its a nice way to locate the fish-then target them with a non trolling approach. JIM

Guided Monday out of Chief Lake Lodge and we went for crappie. Ron and Rick and I caught a good number of them keeping 20 nice crappies for the pan.

Tuesday fished with friend and it was slow for the walleye. We did have one big fish take a swipe at a crappie. Bite was lite.

Yesterday the bite was not so lite and the walleyes were hitting good. Cpr'd a 24.5 and a 22. Ended up keeping a 17,18 and a 19 inch eyes for the pan.

Call or email to book a trip. Do have a few days open this month yet. June is almost full.

Bog is up against the bridge and there is one bog stuck out by birch island. Lots of stuff floating around. Water level is a few inches from full pool and rising.

Hi everyone,

Guided a father/son from Missouri for a morning half day yesterday. We started out with a cold 33 degrees and snow pelting us by a stiff North wind. We had to work hard for the fish we caught but succeeded in boating walleyes,SM. bass, crappies, perch, and bluegill. Caught everything on jigs and leeches. Had no hits on the minnows. Fished over deeper wood and had lots of light hits. The fish are there but the wacky weather has them in a funk. Water temps were 56 degrees, down from this weekend. When the weather stabilizes, the fishing will improve. Good luck fishing everyone.

5-16 and 17 report- opened up the place last weekend. Things went better than expected. Had some time to sneak out and fish in the canoe- boat still back home. Probably caught about 150 fish (me and wife) saturday night in a couple hours. Only a guess. Kept closer track sunday morning. Had about a 100 fish in a couple hours. Saturday night was much better so guessing the 150 fish. most fish in the 8 1/2 to 9 1/2 range- biggest was 11 inches. Great to be back on the chip!! Bog looks to be a giant pain in the butt, like it was at the end of last year.https://youtu.be/KMr0QyttSG4

normal embed link not working, but the crappy looking link above does. video for morning fishing of the 17th

Got out yesterday in the big cold front. Walleyes bit surprisingly well. 1/4 ounce jig and a walleye minnow as well as minnows under slip floats. 14-17 foot wood humps near the river channels. Caught 22 fish between 12 and 20.5 inches in the afternoon. Watched the bog blow into the bridge mid afternoon and then blow back out. A big west wind will likely push it back now that it is loose. We finally had a nice sunny day today and went out and hammered the bass in the shallow wood. Looking forward to a little bit nicer week! Water temps are just short of 60 main lake! Good Luck!

It's one line per angler and a max of 2 lines per boat on all waters that didn't allow trolling in the past, all other counties that allowed trolling in the past nothing changes and it be up for a review at the spring hearings in 2018 The guys name is Tim Simonson he works for the DNR in the fisheries Management Department, email is timothy.simonson@wisconsin.gov, it also said that it should be on the DNR website dnr.wi.gov and search for trolling.

Hello GrouseHunter, Do you know the verbage on the new trolling law?
