Fished "The Rock" Oct 4th and 5th. We spent the overcast Oct 4th afternoon working the River edges from the Petenwell dam and south until dusk. We threw a lot of top water and ended the day with a mixed bag of Northern, Small-mouth and some good size White Bass.
On the 5th we had to wait for the heavy morning rain to pass. We took to trolling the main channels in the big lake and the bite was on before the front passed through. We boated a bunch of Smalleyes and a few nice size Whitebass. After the front passed, the fishing slowed but we were blessed with a beautiful 67 degree sunny October afternoon. Water Temp maintained a tight range in the low 60s both in the river and main channels.
The fish had an appetite for the "perch" color lures. All went back to fight another day.
