Just wondering if the carp have already been in the shallows spawning and splashing around? Thanks

Because if I see a pic of someone with fish...or a report saying they caught x amount  of fish...that's good enough to know if I might want to fish the lake.  Most of the time you know...given the weather...what is going to be going on with a lake like Bago.  That's as much info as I would care to share...and wouldn't post anything on a smaller lake.

For the most part...I use it for the Lake Michigan reports. That's a totally different story where it's put and take and it's never over-crowded.  I also like the private messenger.

I know guys that have posted fake reports on specific spots on bago (which is a crappy thing to do)...you see a spot that hasn't had boats on it suddenly have 5-15 boats on it.

To add to the report below, I tried staying out of the pack and on green weeds. I had a few spun out crank tangles from weeds today, but that was the price to get a few imo. I didn't feel like a long drive or getting up early so I didn't hit the north end. The weeds aren't in great yet where I was, but they were enough to hold a few. In the first 5 minutes of pulling cranks I got one and just never left fish to find fish. I hadn't been out in the last week so I was going pretty blind outside of previous years experience.

They wouldn't touch the #5 s or any dark colors for me and I didn't try salmos, walleye divers, shad raps, lindy shadlings or anything else for that matter. There may have been a better bite there, but I quit switching when I got to 3 different ones that hit walleyes. The walleyes (and sheephead) were plainly visible on downscan in 8 fow and equally distinguishable. Any shallower than 7 or deeper than 9 and there were no marks and no bites.

Trolled any bright white or pink #7 flickershad and got 7 walleye. I kept 3 that were 14.5 to 16 inches and threw back the 12 to 13's. 8 fow west shore reef. 1.7 to 2.5 mph flatlined and hammering rocks. I tried slow death crawlers for a while early and got only goats and cats. Like really big goats. 8-12 lb. goats if you like fishy caviar.

Went out this morning before the wind and pleasure boaters kicked in.  Caught two right away, maybe 14” and nothing after that.  I didn’t see much going in the boats anywhere.  Fished 1/4 oz jig head with long and short shanks and minnows, tried slip bobbers, leaches, raps, crawlers...tough bite today with water clarity maybe 6”.   Water temp warmed up to 60 by the time we left before noon, wind was picking up and around 15 mph from SSW with whitecaps trying to make themselves known.  Tried several reefs, drifting, spotlocked...enjoyed a beautiful day none the less.  Good luck out there.  There was a convoy of big boats making its way to the lake.  Be safe and enjoy the holiday.  Thanks to all of you vets reading this.  Your service is greatly appreciated.
