Out this afternoon for 5 hours lots of shorts fishing wood, 18 to 20 feet. Wind came up and decided to let it win. Dead sticking worked the best. bigger the minnow the better. maybe tomorrow...

Got out on Saturday night around 4 pm. Headed up river to try and rip some lips....had a few blowups but couldn't seem to get any of them in the boat. Slender, thin baits with a tail they seemed to be hitting on.

Not sure if it is just me but at least for the bass in "The Rock" I have the most luck covering a lot of water with a bait I am comfortable with. Always sort of a grind out there to get them to bite. Curious if others have had more luck than me and I'd love to talk!

On Sunday morning we got out jigging half crawlers on a 1/4 oz. head. A lot of short walleyes! Also hooked into a few white bass which I hadn't done in a while. Seems like the white bass went absent for a while and caught a half dozen Sunday. All caught in about 10' of water.

Got out Sat. in the heat. Made a few long drifts starting just northeast of the island over the constantly changing depths of 8-14 fow using 3way swivels with floating jig heads. Ended up with 2 really nice legals and a crappie. Of the ton of shorts many had to be measured and the usual sheeps and whites. Half crawler outperformed fatheads.

Barry and his dad Duane from the Sussex area booked a morning trip for today on "The Rock". They do most of their fishing north of the Buckhorn Bridge and wanted to find some spots on the main lake to try. They wanted to start the morning trying for some blue gill so we headed towards the east on a hump dotted with wood and dabbled 1/32 ounce ice jigs tipped with half a red worm. When we left that spot we boated 25 blue gills, put 19 in the live well, 2 crappies, 2 sheep's head, 1 catfish, and 1 short walleye. For the last hour and a half we targeted walleyes and boated about a dozen white bass, a few more "shorties", 1 nice "keeper", and another crappie. 

Keep a tight line!!!

Monday 9/18:

Steve and Bernie booked a morning trip on "The Rock". Steve has a condo at Northern Bay and just wanted to go out for a few hours and catch some fish, but not keep. We soaked dead rods and jigged channel edges with fat-heads around timber in 16 - 18 feet of water. We boated and released 3 "keepers that were just 15 ", over 25 "shorties", 1 crappie, 1 perch, and a catfish.

Tuesday 9/19:

Tim from Delton booked a morning trip with friends Dave, and Mark. Fished channel edges again today, and finished dabbling for blue gills with 7' light action rod tipped with a 1/32 ounce jig and red-worm. finished with more than 20 "shorties, some at 14 7/8". 3 crappies, 2 perch, 17 blue gills. (kept 12) 

Keep a tight line!!!

Fished the rock Friday and Saturday, picked up the usual short walleyes, only had 1 over 15". We fished the river on Friday all the way to the dam, very little success in river picked up a few shorts and some sheephead at the dam. Worked a few areas on the way back down and stopped at fish lake. A few shorts and a small northern and a sm mouth. We end the day by buckhorn picking up a dozen crappie. Saturday started at buckhorn pickup some crappie and a few gills and moved to main lake structure picking up some short walleye. I was very surprised to not catch 1 striper the entire trip, that was a first for me. 

Tight lines..... }<())))'>

Fished "the Rock" most of Saturday (9/16/17) with a friend. Since the weathered has cooled and the weekenders have mostly subsided, its time to get back out on the lake to fish. We pulled boards through the channels catching some nice Crappie and a bunch of Small-eyes. The south wind beat us up for the afternoon and fishing slowed. We decided to spend our last hour out of the wind and do some casting in a couple of my favorite bass spots. All fish released for another day.

Got out Saturday afternoon trolling and drifting in the rough water. Mostly worked the dyke between dam and county park. Only ended up with shorts, whites, sheeps and a little smallie.
