My neighbors David and Danny along with their Father, Danny Senior, were passing by the shop this evening on their way to fish a few hours when they spotted me wondering around in my yard, they shouted hey come on get in, I ran in the house and grabbed some gear. Within minutes of getting out I had their ski boat positions over a honey hole I've been working regularly this past few weeks. All three men had their poles bending over and over for the couple of hours we were out. Pictured is one of several caught in this class range that we caught. All on artificials, Thank you fellas for a wonderful evening. John

We fished the early morning hours yesterday picking up 3 walleyes approx 16" -18" and then managed 8 smaller Bass and 9 nice gills, not sun fish.

Didn't have much time to spend on the water but made us 3 content with the action we got.

I was surprised to see the water temp at only 75.6 degrees.

More fishing to come soon I hope.

Another good day on the lake. I kept 22, my partners kept 24. Dropshot with a worm is still hot. Best action 16 feet. Marked a decent amount or suspended larger fish in 25-30 feet, have no clue what they could be. Wish I could find some crappies but have no idea where they are.

Fished with Kevin, and Cody. Started on the north shore, casting cranks, we all caught several bass, all on the small size. Moved to the pillers, same thing. Moved out to deeper water, and we boated a few larger bass. We finished up with a total of 29 lm, and sm bass. Good luck, good fishing, Woody!

Fished yesterday from 5am till 12:30pm with Dave with the cold front the chilly air felt good but it did have a negative effect on my presention with the c-rig as all we were catching were the smaller ( 8 to 13 Inchers) smallmouth. We fished from 12 to 30 feet and had fish tapping in all depths and when you caught them they were bass but hooking them was not easy we fished north,south and east. We gave in and went to the 8 to 15 foot picked up the drop shot and found the same thing but with largemouth and they were in the same size range. When Dave felt good about the drop shot I pulled a fast one and went deep and back after smallies with the c- rig. On our first drift I caught a better bass and Dave had a good one jump off thanks Dave had a great day. Out today with Phil and grandson Andrew we met at 6am and went deep thinking smallmouth and c-rig. With the boat in 22 and casting out a slight breeze and blue sky. Getting Andrew in first then gramp I cast look back and begin to explain the system the breeze picks up alittle Andrew sets the hook fight is on jumping smallmouth love it. After three short drifts and a few catches and missed we move next spot a little deeper 21 to 29 feet a couple more. The third move a 200 foot drift halfway through gramp hooks up not a jumper digging deep it's gold wow a walleye cool two more drifts smallmouth time to move. Nothing at 4th spot or 5th change up go shallow 8 to 18 feet drop shot largemouth nothing big but bigger then yesterday in the 12 to 16 inch range. Thank you guys it was awesome watching the T-Allen rods bend.

John was right about the wind. Launched in Fontana to stay out of wind and fished north shoreline from there to George Williams college. Drop shot in 10-15 feet. Was commenting to my daughters (fishing partners) about how bass seemed small when I caught this dandy. 25 inches long but did not have scale. Total of about 15 large mouth using that technique along that shoreline.

Windy and there is winddddy, well today started out just fine but by noon it really picked up, strait out of the west, some of the biggest waves I rode in in quite some time. Surfs up the smallmouth were saying as we landed them all day. Tried for crappie also and got a few before abandoning are attempt and going back to smallies. Had an awesome musky encounter with a mid 40's inch fish come in hot on one of the crappie being brought to the boat. John

Fished with Steve from 5am till 11:00am started deep with the c-rig after two moves we found the smallies in the 16 to 23 feet but they were scattered and with the west wind the drift was the best presention. After four drifts Steve started asking about the drop shot so we looked for calmer waters moving into 8 to 14 feet and played with the largemouths lets just say he likes the drop shot and the c-rig  both were new to him and I beleve he now will be able to get set up for many good days ahead. Thank you Steve for a great day.

Hooked up with Matt at 6:30am fished till 11:00am We started. In 15 to 25 feet and while we were getting taps nothing would hold on. After two moves we found them in the 25 to 33 feet on a quick drop. It took Matt a bit to get the hook set down but when he did he was all ovèr it. The first time we fished he was pre-school now he's on his way to uw Madison and I look forward to spending some time up there with him. Still dragging the c-rig on the T-Allen rods what a blast.
