Hey guys, I am staying at Buckhorn in August and I am looking for some good spots to target largemouth or smallmouth bass. I usually jig for walleye when I come but I want to target some bass with the fly rod this year. Any information would be much appreciated, thanks

Split guide trips today. Morning trip with tom and a afternoon trip with bob and his son. Morning trip it rained for a few hours. Wind was out of the south for most of the morning. Water temp was around 65. Afternoon trip sun came out around noon and the wind was calm for couple hours before switching over to the south west making the lake rough.Water temp in the afternoon was in the upper 60s. Both trips we trolled cranks and boards.Lots of walleyes,crappies and white bass today. Big Smile Big Smile

First, thanks BOB WILSON for the info on the stripers on Petenwell.

Went out Sunday morning 0600 at the Buckhorn. Fished the south side and it was a mixed bag. Some crappies and a striper but mostly a ton of 11 to 14-inch Walleyes...

Got off the lake as the rain started because about a half-hour before that the fish shutoff like now...

All in all a nice morning.

Took 6 people on the pontoon yesterday, including two 10 year olds. We started out trolling in the morning for awhile but it only produced a few walleye so we switched to slip bobbers fishing 3-8fow. Caught a mixed bad of short walleyes crappies white bass and catfish. The kids also got to do some swimming and jumping from the pontoon. The day was definitely all about the kids. They had a lot of fun though which made it enjoyable for everyone other than the fact we caught fish and it was a beautiful day! Still havehave some openings for groups up to 8 people, with a great half price discount on kids!

Did Castlerock, Petenwell, and below castle today. We had 2 fish try on Petenwell this morning and then we went to eat lunch. After that we went down on Castlerock and had another fish follow an eat-me lure, and then caught one on a Medusa. Then we had a pike come off and then another one follow. We then went below castlerock and had another musky follow a crappie colored Eat Me lure, but no takers. The two that tried and missed on the Pete were on bucktails. If any one wants to try a day with me, give me a call.

Kilogulf59 I had a trip on Saturday on petenwell and we couldn't keep the stripers off long to catch many walleye. We were trolling the main lake with cranks. I also added a pic on my last report. Not sure why it didn't post the first time.

A good friend and I got out today to do a little walleye fishing. Started about 9am and finished around 4pm. Water temp started out around 58 and finished around 62 by late afternoon. 6 to 12 fow is where all the fish were found. By the end of the day we boated 7 walleye, 2 really nice ones in the slot (24 and 26" see pics), 2 white bass, 1 nice 13" white crappie, and a small northern. Dark colors seem to be the favorite today. All we're caught trolling at speeds of 1.5 to 1.85.

John joined me for a half day guide trip on castle rock today. Today was another cool morning. When i left the the house today my truck said 30 degrees. When i launch the boat at 6:20 am water temp was only 55.4 from the buckhorn bridge launch all the way to the east side of the lake where i picked john up from. When we left around noon today the water temp on the lake was just under 60. Sounds like warmer temps are on there way next week.We ended the day with a bunch of short eyes,keeper walleyes,crappies,goats and 1 big cat. All our fish today went back to fight another day Big Smile Big Smile

Had a half day trip on castle rock in the afternoon on monday with 2 people from Arkansas and 1 person from Arizona. Their great sense of humor definitely brightened a dark cloudy day. Wind was 20-35 mph with 2-3 foot waves. The lake was extremely rough. Trolling was almost a no go. We managed 1 catfish and 1 short walleye. Then we fished minnows and bobbers in 2-5 fow in a little less rough water. We managed 7 crappies 1 largemouth 1 catfish and a dozen walleye but all were shorts. Not too bad considering the conditions. Had another half day trip today and conditions were better with the wind only being 5-15. Did a little trolling and bobber fishing again. Caught some white bass and 17 walleye but only 2 keepers.caught a few crappie 1 catfish 7 short walleye and 1 dink perch with the slip bobbers. Crappies ranged from 10inches to 15 inches. Walleye ranged from 15 1/4-16 7/8. No slot walleye at all surprisingly. Most types of fish are still fairly shallow right now in 2-10 fow. Hope this weather improves! Dull
