Jim booked a full day guide trip with me today on castle rock.We launched the boat @ 6 am. Water temp was 75 to 77 the entire guide trip.Wind was blowing very hard for a couple hours out of the south. Around 11 am rain pushed threw and wind stopped. Around 1:30 pm wind really picked back up as a storm was moving in. Today we caught 90% of our fish on crawlers. We did catch a few on leeches. Wink Wink Lake was really green and rough on the north east side of the lake today. South towards the dam was clear of the green slim. Water was very dirty on buckhorn side and very green just south of the bridge. Big Smile Big Smile

We trolled shad raps and litte joes with worms at the drops near fingers, humps, and along river channel most of the week of 20th. My wife caught this muskie on the little joe with 8lb test line. Somewhere in the 40"+ range. Ruler on boat only went to 36". We caught some keeper walleye, more shorties than i can count, another 30" muskie and several northern similar size with one 33", and a 36". Got some 10lb cats,smallies, one large mouth, and a bunch of white bass. All in all a great week on the lake and my wife and i caught our first muskies. Now i just have to catch a bigger one now, and get a bigger net.

Was wondering how the water is this time year, fish there in winter but never in summer but am coming down there for a family re-union, was told was really green. Any info on water color would be helpful as bringing kids to fish/swim. Thanks in advance.

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!!!
