Fished yesterday. Not a lot of luck and through the whole tackle box at them.  Fished mainly 8-25ft of water from the fat west end all the way back to the boat landing.  Couple small pike and one follow and a small bump.   Ran into a few other muskie guys and they said the same.  Saw a few small gar which I always think are cool.  I always seem to see them in the same bay everytime I fish there. water Temps are getting high too, I had 79 degrees give or take just about everywhere.  I'll be taking a break from them until it comes back down in the 70s.  Marked a bunch of bait balls and other fish around them, usually while I was within the 20-25 ft range.  Good luck everyone and stay cool.

Couple nice Whites and few smaller Yellow Bass this evening. With clouds and rain most of the day water temp down a few deg and likely not as much algae and zooplankton floating up as water calmed before sunset. There were a few scattered surface feeders and plenty more on locator down 5-10ft below. The little bit of surface feeding action died out early. They will be back with more hot humid days ahead.

As usual, after a good evening fishing alone last night, I took couple little girls out after em this evening. Never goes as planned when you take other people along. Very few surfacing then they quit and were on screen 8-10ft below. Harder for the kids to long cast, count down and reel at correct speed etc.. Got 1 tiny yellowbass, a few hits and follows, gave up at 9pm with lightning flashing closer....But, they want to try again tomorrow....

Evening of dragging crawlers and jiggn leeches without a bump, then the yellow/white bass started busting the smooth surface over a wide area. Chased a few schools with electric motor tossing small spinners at them=few little ones and others up to 14", lost a couple bigger along with the spinner when they dove under boat while reaching for net, cutting line on old aluminum. Lotsa fun for the last hour of sunlight then raced off the lake to dodge the skeeters.....

few cats, yellow bass, and a big sheep  fishing off the dock over the weekend while watching the boat parades. Lake no where near as busy as we expect on the weeks/weekends surrounding the 4th. Pleasant and mostly quiet other than lot of fireworks in the evenings.....

water level has been going back down over the last week after rising to within a couple inches of "slonowake" level. Then we just got hammered by heavy rain today. Water somewhat stained and weedgrowth is much greater than last year with a lot more of the good stuff like , native "Cabbage" in shallows and Coontail near bottom out to 13fow in places. Getting an occasional walleye on jig/leech or crawler here and there on or out from those weed edges.

Fished swan again for Father's day.  It has been very good to us every time on father's day for the last few years or so.  Brought the musky and pan fish gear with and found some big blue gills right off the bat so stayed on them until about 1pm when the wind and boaters all showed up.  Kept a one man limit for two and called it a day.  Great average size with hardly any sorting.  Night crawler and small jig head.  Boat positioning was key.

Took the kayak out on Sunday mid day.   The breeze was strong enough to make fishing the pads and other weedbeds a chore, so I drifted and cast, then eventually paddle trolled around the hole to the right of the launch.  Slow day, but good exercise.  Got a handful of better sized white bass, a pike, a largemouth and a smaller, but eater catfish.   Slow, but enough to keep me interested in the workout.  Alternated between a smaller plastic swim bait and a diving crankbait.  Caught some fish on each.  Been extremely lucky on landing a few pike with 6# and no leader.  Gonna be a bite off soon.    Everything was released.
