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.

Does anyone know why there isn't a map on lake link for the Rock? Coming up in October and would like to start checking out the map, does anyone know of any on line maps?

Mike booked another half day guide trip with me on "Castle rock"

We launched the boat @ 6 am and fished till 11 am. Water temp was 75.9 when we hit the water and when we left it was 77.8

Water has cleaned up in the area we are fishing,Not much for weeds or green today. We started fishing panfish in the early morning hours and around 9 am switched to walleyes. No keeper walleyes for us today just 20 short eyes, 1 cat, dozen goats, 1 crappie, few perch, 10 smallies and a bunch of big gills.

Anyone looking to book a guide trip, I have the 18th,19th and 21st open!

Good luck, Be safe

Mick Booked a full day guide trip for 3 people with me today on "Castle rock"

We launched the boat @ 7am and fished till 3:30 pm today. Water temp was 73 in the early morning hours and when we left it was around the 76 mark. Lake was very green and full of weeds every where. We really had to jump around to find clean water today.

The bite today was on the slower side, Couple cooler nights and cooler water temps had the fish a little sluggish till late in the day.

Today we caught a few fish up shallow, The rest were deep tight to the bottom. Most of our fish came on jigs and crawlers. Rest came on power baits.

All our fish went back to fight another day.

Chris booked a half day guide trip for 2 people with me on "Castle Rock"

I launched the boat @ 6:30 am and ran across to pick the guys up @ 7am from northern bay. Nice cool morning to start the day, Water temp was 71 when i launched the boat. When i dropped the guys off water temp was 75.

Today we dragged jigs tipped with half crawler up and down the main river channel. Today we caught just about every thing in 8-12 fow. Water temps cooled off and the fish moved back up to shallow water. Wind was a little rough blowing from the north west. This should push the green slim down towards the dam.

Guys went home with couple keeper walleyes,couple perch and a bunch of nice gills.

Anyone looking to book a guide trip,I have the 11th,12th,14th of next week open.

Good luck,Be safe

Thanks kman. It's good to be appreciated. I enjoyed the day just as much with you guys. I would like to add that when it was hot we hit water that was not. So those who read please do not Muskie fish in 80 plus water. There are many things about musky fishing that are done to protect the fish. If you are new to it learn from someone who's done it a while. Thank you

I live on and have fished Castle Rock for fun for the past 15 years. Ever so often myself and a friend or two will hire one of the local guides for a day on "the Rock". I always follow the Castle Rock Lake-Link blog and enjoy the reports from all. If you are looking for a fishing guide, any of the guides on this blog would be my first choice. Yesterday, we spent the entire day and evening with "Muskie Mark" (Mark Saemisch). First let me say that having a bright & sunny 90 degree day, no wind and water temps at 80 plus adds to the already difficult challenge of catching Muskies. I'm sure it was not what Mark wanted to see in the forecast, but never the less, its the day we booked. 

Mark went above and beyond what we expected from a fishing guide. His knowledge and eagerness to teach us as well as his persistence to stay out on the water and put us on fish to make our Muskie experience great in less than favorable conditions was commendable. 

Anyone looking to experience Muskie fishing on Castle Rock, Muskie Mark is someone you should put at the top of your list.  

Thanks Mark for a great experience on a very tough day to fish.

Randy booked a half day guide trip for 3 people with me on "Castle rock"

Today we fished from 7 am till 11 am. Wow It was a hot one on water today, No wind with a little fog for the first hour.

Water temp was in the 75-77 areas where the lake is green and very dirty the water temp is around 80

Today we started fishing 8 to 10 fow and later moved to 12 to 18 fow. Today we fished live bait, Crawler worked the best for the walleyes and smallies. For the gills we used big red worms.

Guys took home a nice batch of big gills and 1 white bass.

Anyone interested in booking a trip, I have this weekend open.

Good luck,Be safe
