Guided Jim and Bestie out of Shady Nook Resort on Sunday for Crappies. After the 3 1/2 inches of rain from Friday and Saturday, along with a high pressure system to follow, things were on the slow side for us.

The lake cooled down and came up a few inches with that last sysytem and the bog was on the bridge again, but was passable.

Fall is in the air and September is right around the corner. Give me a call to get in on some great fall fishing thats awaits!

Good luck and we'll see you on the lake!

Not a report, but is also kind of is lol. Fished Saturday in the rain til 2 pm. Got one mid-30s fish on the 8 with bucktail. Water temps where about 77 degrees.

Not much experience with this awesome body of water at all. Strictly targeting Skis, which side of the flowage is a better side to start at? Hopefully coming back up this weekend. We stayed on the east side because we launched there and the bog was blocking the bridge.

Thanks!

Just returned from 2 weeks on the chip. Another great 2 weeks!

The first week, caught more legal eyes, then shorts. 2nd week, the legals were harder to come by.

I was casting flicker shads and jointed shad raps, slow death, and pulling flies. For those of you that fish the bago chain, you know what pulling flies is. Just about every eye I caught, it's mouth was loaded with larvae. I thought, why not try it. And it worked very well.

I did catch 1 muskie, 42 inches. I was casting a jointed shad rap.


I was fishing points, humps with wood on them. Pulling flies and slow death on the drops.

The crappies did not bite like they normally do. Actually had to fish for them. Had to keep moving, to pick off the active fish on cribs. Fished cribs shallow and deep. One thing I noticed, the avg size was a lot bigger this year. And the blue gills were quite a lot bigger. The last couple years, gulp was the big bait for me. Still was good, but minnows beat the gulp. Gold jig heads on sunny days, outfished every other color. We had one day, where we only had to sit on one spot.Use your locators. If there weren't any fish on the graph, I didn't wasted my time trying to fish the crib. The cribs that did have fish on them, they were really stacked up on the crib. From 5ft under the water, to the crib. Just couldn't get them to bite consistently.

I was able to feed the loon by hand again. Good to see it was still around


Walleyes, I fished both the east and west side. Crappies, mainly the east side. stayed at Johnsons Resort, like we have done for a long time. Barb and Pete again were great

Those of you that are lucky enough to be up there year round. I am very jealous. Have to wait another 50 weeks, before I get back up there.

To those of you having trouble finding spots to fish, if you have side scan, use that to find the cribs, weeds, wood. once I get to the crib, I use down scan, to see if any fish are present.

I have seen many things swim by on the flowage. ducks, geese, loons, deer, bear, and once in a blue moon a fish.  So there we were pan fishing and a squirrel swims by. Never seen that before.

Bass fishing on the Flowage is a fun way to see a fish blow up on a scum frog tight to cover on both sides.  Really close to the shore, in the  pads. Also, We flipped jigs into the reedy pockets  you see all over, but reed points adjacent to  deeper water were best. Did some muskie fishing but Temps were still high this Wed - Sat.

Had John out today. We fished walleyes this morning and did well catching a dozen fish. Depths varied. Presentation stayed the same, jig and minnows. We fished soft bottom humps. After lunch we fished musky for a couple spots and I got a heavy mid forties fish. Awesome bite! Call to book a trip.715 4108696

Trolling last night near blue berry flats and lost a rod. If someone happens to find a floating rod with a Okuma Cold Water cw303d please let me know. Thanks.
