Saturday 5/5

Pete booked a morning trip for Saturday along with his wife Deb. They purchased a condo last fall and had never fished the lake so we went out doing a little jigging and soaking dead rods with fat-heads and rosie reds on both side of the Buckhorn Bridge, then tried slip bobbers in the Little Yellow for a short time. We boated a lot of "shorties", some "keepers", and slot fish by the bridge, and crappies and small walleyes in the Little Yellow. 

Keep a tight line!!!

Friday 5/4

Josh booked a trip on "The Rock" for Friday morning with his friends Steve and Ivan. We didn't get started until 8 am waiting out the morning rain. Steve and Ivan had never fished before, and Josh mostly fishes for bass and pan fish on small Illinois lakes. None of them had ever jigged for walleyes. They weren't interested in keeping fish, just wanted to spend some time on the water. We jigged near the bridge then pulled cranks for a while. They boated over 30 fish, including walleye, white bass, and sheeps head. 

Keep a tight line!!!

My buddies and I went on a 3 day trip to the Rock Monday-Wednesday.  Started out at the trestle and basically got skunked.  The water temp was high 40's and probably a little too cold to get active fish.  We decided to try the other side of the lake by the Buckhorn bridge (water temp was almost 10 degrees higher in that bay) and had a lot more success.  Probably caught 60-70 fish and cleaned 3.  Also caught this northern which was a lot of fun.

Chris booked a morning trip on "The Rock" for Sunday, along with his son Colin, and his dad Dennis. They have not tried a lot of fishing here except for some trolling and dock fishing by Northern Bay. We launched by the Buckhorn Bridge and started the morning bouncing jigs tipped with minnows in the current flow under the bridge. We boated about 20 walleyes with only one being a keeper, then we soaked minnows under bobbers for a while and caught a couple crappies. There didn't want to keep fish so all are still swimming. The lake is within a few inches of summer target level, and the flow through the dams is being reduced almost hourly. Water temperatures are hovering around the 50 degree mark and should start to increase with the warmer day and nigh time temps. The water is really dirty as well, a lot of cattail leaves, grass and debris floating. 

Keep a tight line!!!
