We got three muskies on three different bodies of water to day. We pulled off a hat trick. I had Shane and Robert from West Virginia in the boat today, and they wanted to see what Wisconsin musky fishing was like in our area so we started on Castlerock. We move 4 and caught one on a marabou spinner from Thrill Seeker Lures. Then we move about 3 and caught one on the river below, with an Eat Me Lure by yours truly. Then we de used to go for the hat trick. We went to Redstone and got a thick little fish on a marabou tied by me. We have a little video footage of the Eat Me Lure fish. I'll try to post it. Nothing quality just a quick phone video. All in all I think those West Virginia boys had a blast.

Greetings All, I am new to reporting but love to read others. I have a house on the lake I use during the summer mostly and love to fish. My wife caught this fish last Friday around 11:00 A.M. As we were trolling with some Flickr-Shads, I think that is how they are spelled!! Very surprised to see it as we were thinking we would see walleye, we caught two small eyes also. Thanks to all who participate on this board, I hope to keep learnimg the lake.

I took George out the other day for a half-day trip and we had one Muskie try and George got this Pike on a spinnerbait. George also brought some sandwiches from an Italian deli in Chicago and I netted the Pike with a sandwich hanging out of my mouth. We had a good laugh about it. This was the second time I had George out on the water with me and I believe we will be out many more. Looking forward to it. If anybody is looking to get out on the water and have a good time give me a call.

Mike booked a full day guide trip with me today on the "Rock".
We launched the boat from Adams County park @ 7 am and fished till 3 pm. Wind started out of the south east. Later in the day wind really picked up from the north east.
Water temps have cooled back down with the cold front. Today @ 7 am when we launched we only had 68.9 water temp. 3 pm when we left it was 71.3
We started the day trolling cranks on the east side of the "rock" After 3 hours of only few small eyes,few white bass we put the trolling gear away and pulled out the jig sticks and ran north of the tracks in the river.
Not much green on the east side today! It was all south down by Juneau county park with the east winds. But there was a lot of weeds floating around today. Really hard to even run cranks and boards today.
Today's bite was not good,Even with live bait!

I was out on trips on Monday and Wednesday this week and the bite was really tough. On Monday the wind was blowing out of the NW at 15-20 so jig fishing was out of the question. We pulled cranks out from the State park and had a few "shorties, white bass, and perch. On Wednesday we hit four jigging spots with the same results, "shorties", and a crappie. The algae was really thick on the south-east side, but yesterdays winds were out of that direction so it probably has move back to the main lake again.
Keep a tight line!!!

Both Castle Rock Flowage and Petenwell Flowage will get green during the summer months with warm water temps.
With the north west winds today a lot of the green is down the east shore of castle (Wisconsin River) side.
You will just have to play the wind to stay out of the green.
I took a father and two sons out this afternoon for some mixed bag fishing. We trolled got one walleye and then we went after some catfish and sheephead for a little Rod bending action. I did Muskie this weekend and we had lots of action on the lake and the river and lost some fish. Will be doing Muskie again tomorrow as a half-day trip. If anybody's interested in going out give me a call.
