Sorry I haven't posted a report in awhile. Things have been crazy busy with T-BONE GUIDE SERVICE. Great bites have existed most of the summer. With the high water the walleyes were very good around current and weeds on jigs and crawlers. The Musky bite has been very good as well. Great trolling bite and casting bite has existed for most of the season so far. Bucktails have been my top producer so far. Water temps have risen into the 80s on and off lately so we typically don't fish them if the water gets dangerously high, for the safety of the fish. Hopefully the rains will help the water temps dip into the 70s. The bass fishing has been very good on plastics this last few weeks as well. Between myself and my 3 partners we have been on good bites on the chain and the local lakes. Myself and my partner Andy leave August 1 for our annual Musky Boot Camp on LOTW. I will return on August 22 but Lincoln and Matt both have a few openings. Hopefully the back end of the season is as good as the front half. We will also be running full time ice trips in heated permanent shacks this winter. Thanks for all the support and for helping us build this guide service

Caught a mediocre sheepshead, a micro channel cat, and a dink perch on Friday, not very productive.  Too sunny.

In the water haha ....I would think you can catch a catfish any where on any of the lakes at pretty much any time.

Out yesterday for about six hours or so.  Jigged for eyes with crawlers and gulp.  3 legals were caught and kept two. We fished quite a few lakes and no pattern at all.  Jig colors were orange, chartruese, and yellow.  We fished 3'--18' or so.  Lakes got busy around noon and we left shortly afterwards.

Fished for 4 hours with Andrew Schiera of t-bone guide service, casting weedbeds for musky. Only my second time musky fishing. We raised 11 fish, including one est. 45" (??) giant. Never been stared down by a fish before. Finally perfected my figure eight, and hooked this 33-incher at boatside. Kinda like hooking a rocket. Outstanding experience. Thanks, Andy, for a great time. Can't wait to go back!

Crushed the bass this past Saturday. Probably boated 50-60 fish. Not a lot of size to them but fun nonetheless. Senkos, poppers, and jigs were the ticket
