Slow no wake will be released tomorrow @ 7am for Swan Lake. Dropped another couple inches overnight but, rain was predicted, not trusting weathermen on amount. Did not amount to much. But, County does not want to take it off one day then have to go through posting again day or two later...Shore soil is mush after being saturated soo long.

NOTE; Fox River downstream will remain SlowNoWake as it is still high from Portage to Buffalo Lake. Homes along Fox River Rd. having trouble with flood water and roads in that area including hwy CM are under water.

Trolled shadrap type walleye cranks in wind yesterday, with flat bottom jonboat. Frustration is all I got=in the weeds, blown in circles, sideways, drifting to untangle, cutting and retying etc.

Yesterday evening trolled musky & walleye lures, couple hits & landed tiney lmbass. Dragged floater/worm,  jigged and tossed shadraps-not a hit. Bobber/wormed few small gills. Used up last few electrons in tm batt casting bucktails & surface lures over weeds just before cool air blew in from NW. One big hit almost unseated me, off ballance so no hookset, barely saved custom musky rod! Later had 28iner toss surface bait in air, did a double sumersault. Fat, solid gold colored ski. Most action for me in long time

Posting signs for Slow-No-Wake again today. Lot of rain on saturated ground=runoff. Muck soil shorelines are still soft from last bout of rain/high water.

Slownowake order has been lifted. But, keep in mind you are always responsible for your wake and any damage it causes. Water still high and shore is soft. Try to not make big waves near shore and docks.

Was out Sun. and today. Trolled many miles with musky lures and more miles with walleye cranks, jigged and dragged crawler on floating jig in areas where marked a lot of fish, most marked in 20fow. Also tossed rubber worms in lilly pads, not there yet. Trolling was fruitless, had few hits on other stuff, only caught small bass, 1 small eye, catfish, stray gill and perch here and there.

Water was high before we got 6" rain Tue-Wed and more since, 7-8"s upstream watershed. Boats floating off hoists, docks going under etc. Water over the banks & rising. So, county declared SLOW NO WAKE.  Good time to troll cranks to your casting, jigging spot. No wakes to rock your bobber.

How's the water level looking out there? Fishing tomorrow am and would like to hit Swan but would heat to different water if it's no wake. Any input would be great. I don't really want to drive 45 min to see no wake.

Went out Sunday morning (4sep2016) launched at 7am and fished til 11. Focused mostly on the east side of the lake. I threw everything I had. cranks, jerks, poppers, plastics spinners and buzzers and I couldn't even get a bite. Only my 3 time out here but it's the first time I was skunked. Doesn't seem like anyone was having much luck that I seen. Waters still warm.
