Went out with James this afternoon we met at 5pm till 7pm started with drop shot for him while I was throwing the c-rig and were in 25 throwing in. I hooked up first and it never stopped by the time James switched over I had 4 fat smallies and he hooked up on his first cast and landed a high flying smallmouth. He was thinking to fast and blew 6 in a row before putting his next in the boat but made up for his misses with a 5 fish run. All in all it was a great couple hours and the pooch was having a ball.

Went out 6 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Was trying to get smallmouth but seemed like none were biting. Fished the points off Williams Bay and the humps in the narrows. Caught a mix of 50 panfish, perch, and rockbass in 16-22 fow. Vertically jigged the drop-shot with crawler over the edge of the boat. Did catch a few casting out but had better luck jigging. Tight lines!

Met up with 3 lovely sisters who wanted to take dad out for a relaxing fishing trip. We took off at 6am and fished till 11:30 we started with drop shots in 15 feet casting out nothing moved spot two a few Rockys and one smallie and a couple of small largemouth. At spot 3 we moved in to 12 feet casting in and dad started the action with 5 largemouth in 5 casts while the young lady's were one here one there. At our 4th stop the lesson of the day the best way to catch fish today was to not try and sometimes the harder you try the tougher it gets but if you don't give up it will happen. When the boat traffic started we headed in looking forward to some night fishing. Thank you look forward to next time. Fished today from 5:00am to 1:30pm we had a tough day as the smallmouth were not going for us so we moved in 15 feet and less and caught little largemouth everywhere we went. The only thing they would hit was the drop shot and when we did get the big girl on she gave us the slip. As far as the smallies the mayfly hatch took it's toll on my bite the good thing is they will digest fast.

I was thinking of going and fishing for smallmouth at the narrows tomorrow.  Is there good action out there? I was going to use a drop shot rig

Fished with Brian and Cody last night, 6-1:30. Since we had to launch at Trinkies, decided to fish heading east. Started with plastices, dropshot was picking up a few bass shallow, but i stayed with cranks and spinnerbaits, and picked up a few here and there including a lm bass around 3.5lbs. Got to give credit to Cody who boated the FIRST  fish of the evening,  a nice lm bass around 2lbs. As we worked our way around maytag, we picked up several bass, but most on the smaller size. We all had a great night, with a total of 30 bass, all CPR`ED.  Here`s a funny thing, the fishing forecast was for poor fishing, but we did much better last night, than when the fishing forecast was for exellent fishing a few days ago, might have to fish more the poor days!! Good luck, Good fishing, Woody!!

Fished 4am-9am. Targeting bass mainly. Fished east of linn, the flats, and Geneva bay mainly targeting 5-15ft. Caught 8 or so large mouth all under 16 inches on  rattletraps and rapalas. Nothing on plastics. Tried drop shoting the flats from 15-30ft with live bait when the idiots came out to play at 8am and it resulted in a mixed bag of small panfish and one largemouth in 28 ft. Still have yet to have an excellent day out here but that's for next time I guess.

Took the son and his buddy out last night for a few hours. Boated about 10 LM Bass 2-4lbs and 3 nice walleye at 30", 29.5" & 18".

All fish caught casting Rapalas in 13-15" of water and all released to their happy home for other fisherman to purse.

Tite lines!

Late report from Tuesday, June 21.  Got out with my Dad who wanted to just drift crawlers.  Unfortunately, we were only able to get out from 6-8:30 PM.  We pulled in 53 gills, 5 LM (4 over 18"), a perch, a rock bass (seriously only one!), a small 'eye and a bullhead.  I had never seen one pulled out of this lake.  Anyways, all of the fish returned to the lake.  Drifted in 12-14 FOW.

I'd also like to thank the (2) tournament fishing boats who demonstrated their superior dominance over the ethically patient boaters who were waiting to load their boats.  It was not an issue at all having you come flying in thru the "no wake" area in between us insubordinate boaters so you didn't have to wait to get your boat out of the water and (presumably) have your catch weighed in the parking lot of Linn Pier boat launch while blocking us peasants trying to load our feeble watercraft.  Thank you for showing the kids in the boat both ahead and behind us how they should behave at the launch when they grow up!

 Lots more fun in the sun, weed growth is really starting to fill-in nice, key to our success has been focusing our attention on the taller weeds, more like 3-4 feet tall with the 2 feet weeds around them. Soft  plastics of all types have been working.  Trolled a couple nights ago, we caught three musky, two under sized walleye, one northern, handful of nice largemouth, and of course plenty of rock bass. Again, focusing our attention on the taller weed growth has been our pattern . John
