Fished the last Couple days on the rock with Walt Matan from Custom Jigs & Spins. Walt Also Runs Water Works Marine down in Ill. Water temp yesterday was in the upper 70s. Winds was bad out of the south the entire time we fished. Around 11 am small storm pushed through and shut the fish down for us. All our fish came along the main river channel.We pitched H20 jigs tipped with half crawler.

Today we hit the water @ 6:30 am. Cold front had pushed through last night. Kind of a cool start to the morning for july. Water temp was only 69.9 and when we left around noon water temp was 75. Today we jumped around a lot to find active fish. We found a few crappies tight to structure and For the walleyes today we caught them on the drop along the main river channel.Leeches worked a little better for the walleyes today. We caught a mixed bag of fish each day.Keeper walleyes,slots,smallies,goats,crappies and lots of short walleyes! Big Smile Big Smile

Out on "The Rock" this morning for a little jigging, but not a lot happening, just a few "shorties". Put the boards in the water and pulled Flicker Shads and Salmo's. Finished the morning with 2 "keepers", 16 "shorties", 1 crappie, 1 blue gill, and 3 white bass.

Keep a tight line!!!

Was out on the rock today. Launched the boat @ 6 am and fished till 2 pm today. Most of the morning was overcast. Wow when that sun came out she got hot! Water temp @ 6 am was 75 and when i left the water temp was 84. From the buckhorn bridge launch south past the little yellow the water was dirty but not green. As you work your way around to the east side along the fingers up to the train tracks the water was very green. East side of the lake out infront of carlsons was green but not bad. Down towards juneau county park over to dam water was not green but dirty. Today we vertical jigged half crawlers over main lake humps. Later we pitch jigs along the main channel. White bass were chasing minnows for the first couple hours along the surface. I would cast 3 inch berkely gulp on 1/8th oz jig and they would just smash it.All the walleyes and gills we caught we caught deep in wood structure or tight to the bottom on main lake humps.Another thing we did today when pitching crawlers is we would give our baits a shot of walleye formula baitmate. Anyone looking to book a guide trip this next week or later in the month i have a few openings Big Smile

Was out on "The Rock" this morning. Cool start to the day,(48 degrees at 6 am)actually needed a glove on my tiller hand. July 15th, go figure. Worked jigs in and around submerged timber along channel edges in 14-18 feet of water. Finished at 11 am with 35 "shorties", 1 in the slot, 1 crappie, and 1 catfish. North end of the lake was fairly clean, but the middle and west arm is awfully green.

Keep a tight line!!!

Had Jerry and Steve out this last fri. We had a great time. we seen some other fish and had some others try and then we got two. One below Castle Rock and one on the lake. both on spinner baits. Then sat. I had Tim and Alyssa in the boat We seen some fish up on the lake and then went below and got some bitters but only one in the boat. One that was lost was big. I believe hook setting better would have put one more in the boat, but for first timers they now know better and they learned way more than they knew before coming out with me. I hope to see some pics of fish to come from them both. They seemed very excited about musky fishing. ( a great thing to see in a young couple)

We were out on the rock on Saturday and Sunday. Decent walleye bite. A lot of shorts and a few keepers that will live to see another day. Biggest fish was a 27" on a 3/8 oz yellow jig head tipped with a minnow. Focused on current breaks along the river channel. Fished for Muskies saturday night. Hooked up with 1 fish and had another try at boatside. Really good video footage of the strike! Mid 40" fish. Shallow weed flats right before dark provided the action. Good luck out there!

Fished SE of the trestle from 11:00 till 17:00 in 12 -14 FOW off the eastern shore. Caught a real mixed bag of fish. Started out the day with a 4 lb channel cat. Kept "wind drifting" and ended up catching several short walleye, many white bass and several sheepshead. We were using 1/2 crawlers or minnows on either a 1/8 oz. chartreause jig, a slip bobber set for 7'dept, 1/4 oz. bottom bouncer rig with a green floating jig head or a 1/4 oz. slip weight set up with a plain snelled hook. Although we didn't really catch any keepers there was constant action, with something being caught every 15-20 minutes. It was a fun day on the water.

Was out yesterday looking for a few more spots for gills and walleyes. Water temp was 68.9 and when i left around 1pm water was only 71. Big cold front went threw and cooled things down. I started trolling cranks and boards for about 3 hours. Few white bass and bunch of short walleyes. Later i switched it up and jigged wood along the river channel and fished a few spots in the river. Caught a few nice largemouth bass along with some big gills. Big Smile

When i picked tom and his wife up @ 7 am the water temp was 70.When we left the water temp was still under 75. Lots of green floating around on the north east side of the lake. Other parts are cleaning up some. We never put a board or crank in the water today. We pitched 1/8 oz weedless jigs tipped with a half crawler. For the big gills we down sized the jigs and tipped them with big red worms.Anyone looking to book a guide trip?? I have a few openings for july and august. Big Smile Big Smile

Thank you! I have lake master maps on my gps. Just haven't seen too many weeds on the main lake. Only a few patches towards the south.
