Bob, From Peoria Heights Illnois, Booked a 5 hour trip for 4 people with me today on "The Rock"
I launched the boat at 6 am, Ran over to wells cabins to pick Bob and his family up from the doc. Water temp was 72.3 in the early morning & around 73 when we left the lake at noon. Wind was out of the east, Around 9 am wind switched to out of the south making for a good 2 foot walleye chop. Water is very dirty on the Buckhorn side of the lake, Wisconsin river east side was a little green north of devils island north to train tracks. South towards boy scout camp was the cleanest we found today.
Started the morning trolling cranks and boards in 12- 16 F.o.w. We caught a few short walleyes & 1 at 19"
Mid morning we jigged & pitched weedless jigs tipped with half crawler. along the main river channel in 8 -10 f.o.w. There we ended the day with A few nice gills, 2 crappies,1 pike,1 Largemouth Bass, 9 Smallmouth Bass, 10 Sheepsheads & a bunch of short walleyes.
Anyone looking to book a trip before the kids go back to school, I have July-27th,29th,30th & 31st
August-1st,2nd,3rd,4th,5th and a few dates mid month.
Good luck,Be safe!
