First time back out alone since my back injury.... Happy to be able to be out fishing again and even happier that the rain made for a peaceful day on the water  I did the bass and walleye thing today just to get an idea on where things were at and its a early summer bite and its looking good! I was expecting the water to be much hotter after the 3 weeks of heat! But 75 was the main temp anywhere I was today so fished 15-25fow and found what I was after! Got a little wet today and sore as all can be but any day fishing is a good day to me!

On at 6, off at 1. I don't look at the water temperature after it gets over 65. So I can not help you there. In the not to distant future it will be time to pay attention to the thermocline. Head for deep water. Set your sensitivity way up to get a line on the screen. That depth will be the thermocline. If it says 16 feet. Fish at 14 to 18 and you will always catch something. Fresh meat in the boat today. He was real hyper, so had to let him beat himself up a few hours. Before I could teach him about finesse fishing. He could not throw a 1/32 oz jig with his equipment. But I told him, just drop it over the side of the boat. As long as it stays between 11 and 13 feet, you will catch fish. It was not long before he said. I just caught the biggest bluegill of my life. I then gave him one of my poles to use. He did real well for his first time finesse fishing. I caught a ton of fish. He caught some nice crappies and gills. He left a happy camper. The ride home was a thriller. 40 miles of rain with 10 miles of hail mixed in. Temperature went from 74 to 52. Had to pull over twice because I could not see road. I knew I missed my exit when the sign of the exit I was now passing. Told me I had just missed two exits. But I made it home safe and sound. A lot of people will say, I will never be sound.But I do catch more fish then they do.

Best of luck to all.

Had a great time this morning fished with two great guys we started at 6:30am till 10:30am we started in 14ft casting our drop shots in and after 20 min and no fish we moved and kept the boat in 20 foot casting up with smallmouth then nothing so we move this time we set up in 18ft casting in after 10min we get a 3lb largemouth then lose a couple then nothing we move and set up in 16ft casting in but nothing so on our next move we go shallow 10ft casting in with texas rigs and miss two and get bit of meanwhile I catch a smallmouth on drop shot. On last move we stay deep 18ft drifting with wind and dragging drop shot and getting bites but no hookups so on 2nd drift we switch to half crawlers and get a little walleye the a big largemouth and a couple gills. Thanks guys as the morning went on the bite got better.
