Thanks for a good time Jessie !
Brian booked a full day guide trip for 3 guys with me today on "Castle rock". We started fishing at 7 am and finished up around 2:30 pm. Water temp was around the 72 mark.
Today we trolled cranks and boards. Around 9 am wind really picked up from the west switching over to the north west making boat control not fun. Rain moved in for about a half hour and shut the bite right down. Rest of the day was a grind to find active feeding fish. Fish started up high in the water column. during the rain and after fish moved deep!
Finished the day up with 2 keeper eyes,bunch of short eyes,2 crappies,1 perch,Bunch of white bass the guys took home for dinner this week.
Anyone interested in booking a guide trip, I have a couple openings the next 2 weeks.
Good luck,be safe
Josh booked a guide trip with his son on "Castle rock" with me today. We started out fishing around 11 am and finished up around 4 pm just when the big rain hit! Water temp was around the 73 mark all day. Today we trolled cranks and boards the entire trip. Guys went home with 2 keeper eyes,10 crappies,10 white bass and 3 nice cats.
If anyone is interested in booking a trip, I have a few openings.
Good luck this holiday weekend.
Greg from Chicago booked a morning trip on "The Rock" for today. We started the morning sitting in my truck at the ramp for two hours until a big thunderstorm cell passed through. Some thunder, lightning, and heavy down pours. It finally passed about 8 am so we hit the water. Jigged and soaked dead rods in two places with a handful of "shorties" to show for our efforts. Tried in the little yellow for crappies on slip bobbers and boated 1 along with 1 "shortie", and 1 nice catfish. Put the planer boards in and pulled cranks and finished the day at 1 pm with a total of 2 "keepers", 19 "shorties, 2 crappies,2 white bass,1 catfish, and 1 sheep head. Not a bad day for the way it started.
Keep a tight line!!!
I went out on "The Rock" this morning and poked around some timber on channel edges, and soaked some bobbers for a while. The water temps are finally coming up. It was 65 when I left at 2 pm, so by the end of the week or the first part of next week the crappies should get going. I ended the day wit 1 "keeper" walleye, 7 "shorties, 11 crappies, and 2 catfish.
Keep a tight line!!!
Braved the wind and chilly weather on Sunday mostly to test out my newly repaired motor. Decided to head north of the trestle because of the wind on the main lake. Only planned on staying about an hour but ended up staying for three and a half. Totally got out-fished by my 9 year old son and that’s OK with me. Caught lots of sheep on worms which kept him very happy and even managed a few Walleye on minnows including two keepers. The motor worked well, my son had a good time so overall, it was a great trip.
Im thinking by the end of this week you should start seeing them again it suppose to be in the 70 again my buddy and I went last weekend during the day and filled three barrels and that was during the day and the buffs where spawning Im hoping that they are still spawning by this weekend so we can go again hope this helps good luck
Last weds wed we had some action with follows on tube baits, a fish hit on a hell hoound, and two fish lost on Eat me lure and a barbarian from H2o tackle, The other day when the cold front hit We gave it a shot and had nothin. Then today I had Keith and Maddy out in the cold we started on Pete then went to Castle. We threw bucks on Pete and had nothing then we had one on A tube on Castlerock which came off at boatside. Tough weather and some learning curves for clients when it comes to hook sets and fighting fish, but fishy experiences none the less. Weather this time of year can be tough as it has been, but that is also a learning curve for my clients as well. it is good to learn how to deal with cold fronts and changing weather. evan under such conditions one can have a positive musky attitude knowing they have a chance with knowing how to handle the condition rather than going home. So in the cold times that we seem to be having, my sugestions would be to slow down retrieves, get deeper and be on bait fish. I have openings if anyone wants to learn.
