Breezy geezer - Thanks for the advice but I am moored on Castle Rock.

We gave it a go on Friday but the winds were way too strong - miserable day on the water.

Trolled on Sunday morning just north of Alcatraz. Windy day once again so boat control was difficult by myself. Managed to boat a 24" & 16" walleye, a nice catfish and undersized walleyes. All fish taken were 25-30 back, 1.9-2.3mph. Flicker shads and Salmo hornets were the winning lures.

Mike booked a afternoon guide trip with me for 2 on castle rock today. Wind was very bad out of the south west. Water temp was in the upper 70s all afternoon. Mike drove all the way to wisconsin from texas to fish smallmouth bass. We jumped around to a few spots catching smallies in just about every spot we fished. Smallies are very deep right know with the warm water temps. Most of the smallies we caught were in 8 fow or more on cranks. After boating a bunch of smallies we went after walleyes.We caught a few big slots,shorts and the boys took home a few nice keepers for tomorrows fish fry. Anyone looking to book a guide trip?? I have a couple openings the next 3 weeks Big Smile Big Smile

Need help finding panfish to keep a youngster interested in fishing...

I have a place near Castle Rock and am very familiar with jigging and trolling practices to catch fish on the lake. I love trolling but my 9 year daughter...not so much.

Without discernible weedbeds on the lake...any hints as to where I can take her to catch panfish with a good old fashioned slip bobber? I'm not looking for keepers or info on your honey hole. I just want her to experience the excitement of watching the bobber go down and setting her own hook with some regularity.

Does the yellow river offer this? I had heard that west of the trestle there is a canal that has some weeds in it but have been afraid to venture that way for fear of hitting stumps.

Appreciate the help....

Jim booked a full day guide trip with me today on castle rock.We launched the boat @ 6 am. Water temp was 75 to 77 the entire guide trip.Wind was blowing very hard for a couple hours out of the south. Around 11 am rain pushed threw and wind stopped. Around 1:30 pm wind really picked back up as a storm was moving in. Today we caught 90% of our fish on crawlers. We did catch a few on leeches. Wink Wink Lake was really green and rough on the north east side of the lake today. South towards the dam was clear of the green slim. Water was very dirty on buckhorn side and very green just south of the bridge. Big Smile Big Smile

We trolled shad raps and litte joes with worms at the drops near fingers, humps, and along river channel most of the week of 20th. My wife caught this muskie on the little joe with 8lb test line. Somewhere in the 40"+ range. Ruler on boat only went to 36". We caught some keeper walleye, more shorties than i can count, another 30" muskie and several northern similar size with one 33", and a 36". Got some 10lb cats,smallies, one large mouth, and a bunch of white bass. All in all a great week on the lake and my wife and i caught our first muskies. Now i just have to catch a bigger one now, and get a bigger net.

Was wondering how the water is this time year, fish there in winter but never in summer but am coming down there for a family re-union, was told was really green. Any info on water color would be helpful as bringing kids to fish/swim. Thanks in advance.
