Tim from Mauston and his friend Dick From Franklin joined me on "The Rock" this morning for a little jigging. Really nice morning, a little breeze out of the southwest and sunny. We jigged and soaked minnows on dead rods on channel edges for most of the morning. We had some "shorties", a big crappie, and all the sheeps head and catfish you wanted. Trolled for a short time and only had 1 nice small mouth. We will be out again on "Pete" on Wednesday if the weather holds. The forcast is for thunderstorms in the am.


Keep a tight line!!!

Jeff booked a full day guide trip for 4 people, With me on Castle Rock.

We launched the boat @ 6 am and fished till 3 pm today. Water temp was 69 in the early morning and around 75 when we left the lake. Wind started out blowing from the southeast. Around 1 pm wind switched to the south west. Today the lake was very rough, Boat control was not fun!!

Today we started trolling cranks in 8 to 12 fow. After 1 hour of boating 1 cat and 1 white bass. I told the guys we need to get the jig sticks out and fish live bait. We started pitching and vertical jigging 1/8th oz jigs tipped with half crawler in 10 to 15 fow and later moved to deep water to finish out the day.

Jason from Madison and his family are staying on "The Rock" for a week so he booked a trip for this morning. After the thunder and lightning I figured the bite was going to be a little slow, and it was. We jigged and soaked minnows on dead rods on mid-lake humps and channel edges and had a bunch of "shorties", 1 "keeper", 1 crappie (and dropped one at the boat, some white bass, and the usual cats and goats.

If you have a smartphone i would just download the navionics map. Best 10 you'll ever spend it you fish out of a boat a few times a year, and don't have a locator with gps.
