Out today chasing Smallies. Ended the day with 9 nice fat examples. The largest one was really nicely built and over 20". For whatever reason we haven't caught nearly as many 20+" as years past. We act pretty spoiled now, complaining about 18-19" fish not being big enough....and that was our average size today. Same basic tactics/bait as usual, the C-rig as Bill would say, and an extra large fathead. Not a lot of extra large in the fatheads from Lakeside this fall though! This was the 3rd trip in a row where they showed a definite preference for fatheads over small suckers, not going to bother with them anymore. Water was 49 degrees give or take...plenty of fishing left!!

Fished solo on thanksgiving morn from 7am till 11am started with drop shot and fathead in the16 to 40 ft. Fished new water and well it did not pay off as I never had a bite oh well time to eat turkey. Back at it on fri from 7am till 3pm and the two anglers with me were ready to catch more then a cold. we started with the drop shot and fathead in the 25 to 40 ft. The first spot and we had smallmouth in the 23 to 30 ft. and they were biting. As the wind picked up we moved three times with no bites at fourth spot we found them and this time it was a nice pike so I went to the lindy rig and a perch bang big smallmouth after five short drifts and smallmouth on three drifts and a miss or two (these bass were in 38 to 40 ft,) we made a couple more moves with no bites ended the day in 20 to 26ft. with drop shot and fathead and caught a big smallmouth and a lake trout (26ft.) after a quick pic and release (out of season) we called it a day thanks guys for a awesome day with great anglers.

Got out trolling last night and had a blast. Wound up with 5 eyes up to 18" and an unusual catch(at least for me) of a beautiful 32" lake trout. Dang batteries on scale were dead.It fell for a stickbait in 15fow. All released. Water temp was 49-50. Also finally got proof that hippos inhabit the area!

Going out for just a few panfish on Sunday or Monday.  Crappie and gills.... better choice of waxies maybe or can I still try gulp minnows and hope for some success?

There's a sandy area next to the launch at trinkies. After scanning the area and removing any rocks you can launch and beach there. And no launch fees after the piers are out
