Fished with Steve and Kevin last night, starting around 6. On the north shore, bass were active, we all were catching with drop shots, and crankbaits. Once the sun set, things slowed down quite a bit. Started trolling south and north sides, with only 2 largies caught, gave up trolling, moved to an area by Linn pier, and picked up one more small bass, and called it a night around 1, with 14 bass caught, but no bigguns to speak of. Good luck, good fishing, Woody

A couple more from Friday. I want to get to the night bite but its hard when the day bite is hot and the boat traffic still down. I will get a split next week with a couple day and night trips gotta love it. Thank you lake linkers it is awesome talking with you on the water at the launch and on the internet. I like at the launch and on the water as that means we are fishing.

Met up with three young guys from St. Louie and as they drove up they hit the storm that blew thru only to get here just in time to hop in boat and catch some awesome smallmouth. We started at 6am till 1pm and they were dragging drop shots and I was throwing jig we started in 16 to 30 feet and today was a flip from yesterday as the smallmouth were there in force with a big fish bet going on they measured each bass. The morning was spent bouncing from spot to spot with a little drift then some casting. The thing that jumped out was only to work the area once as the second time thru was a no go. With that in mind we were all over catching 17.5 to 18.7/8 inch smallmouth at every stop and in the end it was a three way tie but wait the guys started giving the guide a ribbing for his lack of fish so I switched to the c-rig and quickly caught up to them in size but could not catch them in numbers. Thanks guys and I can not wait to show you the lake after dark.

Fished thrusday with a longtime client and son ( first time in 1993 ) we had a trip of a lifetime last year and we set out at 5am till 11:30am and on first drift with the c-rig and drop shot the drop shot was what they wanted and the smallmouth were in the 16 to 25 foot range. We did two drifts and moved at the second spot the bass were there and we did two drifts and moved but then we lost them for the next three spots so we went shallow in 8 to 12 feet and did get a couple largemouth but did not like size so we went deep and did get a couple more smallmouth but the size we down. Thanks guys while the bite was tough we stuck it out and pulled thru.

Was out with the fam and guests the last 3 days and slammed the  bluegills, large and small mouth bass.  As usual, when the wind was out of the south or south west, it was hot, with a drift, split shot,  #8 hook and a half a crawler netted several smallies in the 15-18" range, all released in favor of dinners of 8-9" bluegills and big rock bass.  Took some sorting as the majority of gills were in the 7" range.  The shift of the blow to the east slowed things considerably but staying on the lake for the week allowed us to wait out the easterlies.  .   The early morning and evening brought out the drop shot and plastics for the large mouth which were hitting in 10-12 FOW in Williams Bay.  So much fun introducing some novices to the joys of fishing, people to will have lasting memories of catching wild fish which us regulars take for granted.

Got on at 6:00 a.m. right after the big storm.  Didn't seem to bother the LMB's.  Caught a dozen in about 4 hours.  One fatty the rest 15-18".  All hits pretty aggressive. Half on drop shots and half on the Senko. Pumpkin and dark brown colors were working.   Stayed in 8-16'.  Swung out to 20-25' to look for smallies, nada. Tried top water, also nada.  Nothing on lip less cranks either.... Tight lines
