Results of the last two outings:
Last Friday Troy from Friendship and his cousin from Illinois booked a trip to learn some locations and presentation to use on "The Rock". Troy just relocated to the area and had never been on the lake. It was a tough bite to say the least. We started the morning jigging and soaking dead rods in four different locations along channel edges and on some humps. In 2 1/2 hours we only had one walleye and a few short hits. We put the boards and cranks in the water to finish out the trip and had 5 "shorties", 3 crappies, 1 white bass, and a sheepshead.
Today Art, Tim and Tim's son Tyler had a morning trip booked. Started on a mid-lake hump with jigs tipped with minnows and half a crawler. A lot of action but all "shorties" and goats and a lot of short hitter's. Trolled Shad Raps and Flicker Shads and ended with 11 "shorties", 4 crappies, and 2 sheepshead.

Fish the creek arms of the lake on the secondary drops. The bridge areas are also good spots on the current breaks. Or below the dams up close to them or the current breaks within eyesight. I catch lots of the buggers by accident while eye and panfishing these very areas. No reason to fish way offshore stuff in these flowages for musky. I see these guides fishing the exact areas I described to you everytime I'm on either the rock or petenwell.

Today I took out these two guys who wanted their identities hidden. I believe they were Tony and Tommy Two Times from Chicago Lol. We had lots of fun today. If anyone wants to go out I'm on the muskies and have many openings. We got the three fish you see here on Eat Me Lure, Suick and Reef Hawg. Take care and have fun fishing.

Jeff Sisson joined me today for a full day guide trip on "the rock"
Jeff is up all week with family for a summer vacation!
We launched the boat just before 6 am today. Water temp was in the upper 70 s, When we left @ 2 pm water temp was in the lower 80s.
Wind was blowing hard today from the south and later switched over to the west north/west. Lake was very rough today.
Today we started out jigging around the train tracks on the north east side of the lake. Later we went out to try and troll cranks on the east side. We didn't last long trolling, The lake was to rough and there was tons of weeds floating around on the east side.
After putting trolling gear away we went back to jigging the channel edge and pitched jigs in weeds/wood weedless jig tipped with half crawler worked the best.
For the guys looking for a algae report. We ran south of the train tracks down towards devils island. Not much green today. From train tracks north to g boat launch on left couple mile up from northern bay was very clean. Most of the green must be down the east shore towards splash or south. lake has cleaned up some from last weekend. Talked with a couple guys fishing the Buckhorn today, very little green most of it was on the south side of the bridge but the water is still very dirty. Sounds like north/west winds for a few days. Green will blow south towards the dam down the east side of the lake.
Much appreciated. I have a feeling the shoreline at Northern Bay will be green if there is a W/NW wind at all? We will have to search for clean (non green) water then I guess. Any update later would be great. Appreciate the info. Take Care!
Green algae has been mostly on the east side the last few times out. It all depends on how thick it will be in spots with what wind direction. you mite have to move around to find clean water.
Water on the Buckhorn side has not been bad with the green, Water is just dirty with all the rain we have been getting this summer. I will be out tomorrow and give you a better report.
Sorry, not a report but we have a VERY large group coming up this Thursday to Monday for a family reunion and staying at Northern Bay. Hoping someone that's been on the lake yesterday or today and if the green algae bloom is all over yet or mostly gone? Plan to hit the island for swimming, boating, tubing, etc. and hoping its not real bad/gross. Any info would be great.
