I took Pastor Bill and Pastor Dick Musky fishing tonight after work. Bill lost two I had one go flying through the air trying to hit my lure and we had multiple other follows and this is the one that Dick got. We had lots of action in a lot of fun.

A friend and I hit the river part of the lake not too long ago and I caught one musky but I have no picture. He hit the focus ring twice on my camera LOL. So I was quick to pick on him and call him Focus Ring guide service. We had fun. That fish was caught on one of my Saemisch lures. Then we went down river a little further and we were working a weed bed and flat and we seen what look like 10 or 11 Smallmouth attacking the heck out of bait fish. It was a real free for all. Then another night after work down below I took Frank Davis out and he caught a small musky we had some other action as well. That was on a spinner. And then the other night I had Jr and Cooper out for walleye Smallmouth and musky and we got into some Pike as well. The Smallmouth we got on Rebel super poppers. Walleyes were trolling flicker shads. And we had one musky try twice once on a saemisch lure and once on a spinnerbait. If anybody is interested I have openings in August September and October. I will be gone to Canada August 5th Thru the 12th. We also went out with North Fork charters out of Kenosha Captain Kris Davis for salmon I'll share a picture of that as well with me and my family just for fun. Sorry I haven't posted for a while just been busy.

Bob, From Peoria Heights Illnois, Booked a 5 hour trip for 4 people with me today on "The Rock"
I launched the boat at 6 am, Ran over to wells cabins to pick Bob and his family up from the doc. Water temp was 72.3 in the early morning & around 73 when we left the lake at noon. Wind was out of the east, Around 9 am wind switched to out of the south making for a good 2 foot walleye chop. Water is very dirty on the Buckhorn side of the lake, Wisconsin river east side was a little green north of devils island north to train tracks. South towards boy scout camp was the cleanest we found today.
Started the morning trolling cranks and boards in 12- 16 F.o.w. We caught a few short walleyes & 1 at 19"
Mid morning we jigged & pitched weedless jigs tipped with half crawler. along the main river channel in 8 -10 f.o.w. There we ended the day with A few nice gills, 2 crappies,1 pike,1 Largemouth Bass, 9 Smallmouth Bass, 10 Sheepsheads & a bunch of short walleyes.
Anyone looking to book a trip before the kids go back to school, I have July-27th,29th,30th & 31st
August-1st,2nd,3rd,4th,5th and a few dates mid month.
Good luck,Be safe!
Thanks for a great morning on "the Rock". Your experience on this body of water is outstanding. Chris, Brian, and I learned a lot and appreciate your willingness to educate us on techniques and locations of fish. Well done sir.
Well Bob, you have a lot more 's than I have to go out there Boat Bash weekend. Your really going to enjoy it more when you get the Lake-Master chip for your unit.
Today I had Chris, Brian, and Lou out for a morning trip. All three are firefighters from the Chicago area. Chris and Brian are brothers and were out with me earlier in the year and caught a bunch of nice crappies. Todays bite was really tough. The morning started with total cloud cover and a stiff breeze out of the northwest. We tried cranks first in shallow water, deep water, and everything in between and only had 1 white bass, 1 crappie, 1 "shortie", and 1 small mouth bass. Switched over to jigging and soaking dead rods with fat-heads along channel edges in timber with minimal success, moved to the rocks in 14-16 feet of water and the wind switched to the southeast, the wind died, and the sun came out. We went through 4 dozen fat-heads in about an hour and boated over 3 dozen "shorties" before we ran out of minnows to end the morning.
Keep a tight line!!!

We braved the Rock on Saturday the 22nd during boat bash. What a crazy place it becomes. Any how we were able to boat many shorts a couple keepers and a few crappies all in 18 to 20ft. Thanks Jerry Tipping for the trip on Friday a.m. Old dogs can learn new tricks. The lakemaster chip will be here on Wednesday.
Fished this past week out on "The rock"
Trolling bite has been good for the first couple hours in the morning, Best for us is from 6 am till around 9 am and shuts right down from there! With the warmer water temps, We have been catching more fish deep in 15 to 20 f.o.w. a lot of the fish are suspended around 16 to 18 feet.
"Live bait" bite has been good mid day throughout the afternoon and in the evening. We have been using bottom bouncers and slow death rigs tipped with half crawler, Worked up and down the break in 16 to 20 f.o.w We also have been jigging weedless jigs tipped with half crawler or leeches, Crawler working the best.
I still have a these dates open for July-26th,27th,29th,30th and 31st
Good luck,be safe!
