Now that's a slab.  I've caught a few that were almost as long but no where near as fat as that.  I wouldn't be surprised if there's a state record of almost any species in there.

Fished Kinkaid this morning.  Water temp at launch was 52 and at dam.  Warmed up to 54 a few miles up the Johnson Creek arm. Warmest water I found was 56 in the hidden lake area.  A lot of anglers were catching Crappie in there and I caught 3 bass, the largest about 2 pounds.  Did catch and release a 34" Musky in there as well.  I don't think these fish actually spawn in Kinkaid but this fish was cut up and missing a fin (pictured) so he must have been going thru the motions pretty hard.

Was down two weeks ago and it was about 50 at the launches and down by the dam.  Up the Johnson Creek arm it got as warm as 53.  I am going down Sunday and I will report then.  Mostly a Musky fisherman but usually run into some pretty big bass along the way, some as large as 6 pounds.  Don't fish much for Crappie so I'm not much help there.

The water temperatures have reached the danger point for Muskie fishing. With water temperatures in the mid 80 degree mark, it is not recommended targeting muskies now till the water cools in September.. Bass have been good with many methods producing fish. One of my favorite methods at this time is scum frogs and rats over the thick weed mats. Heavy weed growth to 10 to 12 feet around the lake. The thermocline is starting to set up at 20 feet.

Muskie fishing has been pretty good trolling. The Muskie are hitting quite a few different baits. Baits like depth raiders in a variety of colors, krave jrs, donodo crank baits in shad and walleye, krushers in lemon head and white, shallow invaders in various colors and 10 inch jakes. Baits trolled in depths from 4 to 12 feet.

Bass have been very good on top water baits like Zara spooks and pop t's in white or silver. Other baits that are hot are scum frogs over the weeds, 1/4 and 3/8 oz spinner baits on the out side of the weeds and Shad colored crank baits on the out side of the weeds and humps.
