FISHING REPORT

Conditions: Sunny Air Temp: 36° - 40° F Water Temp: 56° - 60° F
Glenn and Laura from Wheeling , IL have a get-a-way home on the Juneau County side of "The Rock" and booked a trip to learn a little about where to go and what to use to catch fish within the 16,000 acres of water that border Adams and Juneau Counties. I mentioned to Glenn when he booked the trip that if he had a hand-held GPS to bring it along so he can get back to the locations I take them to. I try to encourage everyone that books a trip to do the same, otherwise it would be difficult at best, to find the spots again. We launched at the ramp by Buckhorn Bridge and started the morning jigging wood near the ramp. We boated a couple "shorties" and had a few other taps, but nothing consistent. We moved to a mid-lake hump and brought a few more "shorties" over the side, but had a lot more fall off before we could get them over in the boat. Moved to a channel edge near Dellwood but nothing going there. Hit one other spot by Splash and boated some cat, a crappie, and a bunch of "shorties". They never pulled boards before so we finished the day with that and had some more "shorties" and Laura boated a really nice pike with great color. I will have a picture of Laura's pike posted tomorrow. I will have another post tomorrow that will interest musky fisherman, Mark S. will like this!

Keep a tight line!!!

This is a video of musky and pike fishing on the river North of the lake. You may have to reset your Youtube settings to HD for the best quality. The video shows lots of follows and catches. Even some action on the 8 and some boat-side strikes. All the pike are fat and the largest fish gets away due to my slow reaction to an equipment failure. I missed 3 muskies in total and the rest of the action is pike.

Mid morning on Sat, Bon and I headed to a spot where we caught lots of fish last weekend. Well it was better than expected. We caught 65 stripers between 12-14" and kept 24. She also caught a 8# cat which we released and a small bass and walleye. They were biting hard and we had a blast. Couldn't make it out today, had too much to do at the cabin. Big Smile

Bon and I did some fishing Sat and Sun with pretty good results. The water is high and the current is real strong. We found a spot at the edge of the current and caught lots of short walleyes, stripers, cat fish, sheephead, a large mouth bass and a 4" musky. He hit a 2" fathead. Had a great time. Sure glad it's not a contest since I'd have come in a distant 2nd. Til next weekend. Big Smile

Had someone change dates, so I have the 24th open, which is a new moon date. so if anyone is looking to fill an open date, give me a call.

Conditions were tough today, but we still managed to boat one musky and had something else try and had a pike follow. water is really flowing. Ed got this one on a wind blown point with a buck tail.

FM, are staying at the State Park ??

Buckhorn bridge area (County G bridge), there is a fishing pier at the State Park Landing, also have seen people fishing off shore at the landing north of the Buckhorn bridge, (will need a sticker there, or daily pass)
