Late report from the Northwood last Saturday morning.  Set sail at 0730 and drifted thru 12-14 fow with our standard faire of jig, plastic and minnow.   Landed 35 + crappies 7-11 inches, but the action was slower.  Bigger minnows seemed to work better this time.  No large, thick crappies though.  The water seemed warmer also.  Got a couple small cats, a few sheep and just a few yellow stripers.  A lot of boat traffic made the drift a little tough, so we packed it up by 10:15 and played golf later.   Heading up to Big Round Lake in Hayward the end of the month.   Tight lines !

The Northwood sailed on Lake Marie over the weekend in the mornings.  On Saturday, stripers, stripers and more stripers.  All shapes and sizes.  Mainly fished in 8+ fow and they attacked the minnow or nightcrawler on the east side.  Moved out to 13 fow across from the white pillars and fish were a little larger.  Also got some crappies, a catfish and a couple nice walleyes.  Ran out of bait at 11:30 am. 

On Sunday fished from 0730 until 1045 with non-stop crappie action.  All shapes and sizes.  Mostly hitting minnows.  We fished in 12-14 fow mostly drifting. Biggest was 13".  As we moved around picked up some medium sized yellow and white stripers.  Biggest was 14".  Also got a couple walleyes with the largest 21".  The wind made our presentation better.  Our guide Lars new all the hot spots.   Used a mini-mite with gold and lime plastic tipped with a minnow.

Eight different species caught over the weekend.  Perch, walleye,catfish, yellow striper, white striper,crappie,sheephead, one LMB.   A true cornucopia of fishing delight.  Tight lines !  IC

Walleye fishing has certainly slowed down as it historically does this time of year. Lots of white bass and yellow bass are active on most offerings. Crappies are also active in 10-15' of water. Muskies have been decent on bucktails and topwaters.

On the chain from 7 until 11 mixed bag of fish today. Nightcrawlers were the best bait on a bright jig. Minnows caught a few nothing on leeches. Depths were from 5-8 feet. Heavy boats by 10. Good luck

Just got back home from our annual Musky Boot camp in Lake of the Woods. I know this is not a chain report but I figured that some of you guys would appreciate the pics and maybe want to join us in the future. I will be back on the chain this week and I look forward to a great second half of the season.

Could not keep the white bass off the hook. Trolling pistakee with cranks slow or fast went from 1-4mph

Promised some friends a fish fry and happy to be able to deliver on it. Picked up a nice mixed species bag out of several lakes today. Drifting with cut bait and trolling flicker shad caught most fish.
