Fished from 11am-5pm. All I can say is wet and wild. Steady action fish moving in every 5-10 minutes in packs of 2-4. Worked depths of 8-19fow with a mix bag of gills, perch, yellows, whites, and crappies. Most of the fish were small but plenty of action. Moon jig with meat.

Fishing 10/1, fish were scattered and action slow. Our usual hotspots weren't even lukewarm. We marked an impressive number of fish stacked up over a hump in the middle of the lake, but couldn't figure out how to make them bite. Four fish--a bass, two perch and a very healthy bluegill like those we caught all spring and summer--until the cold wind and rain got the better of us. All fish were on worms below a bobber; jig and bait and small spinners with/without bait did not produce their usual way.
I was out two weeks ago. Last week was a little wet. I was getting LMB on spinner baits and 3/8 ounce finesse jigs with ned craws under the boat docks on the south side and southwest side by the train tracks. PBJ color and purple craw. 10-11 total with a few northern as well.
Good luck, I don't know how the rain has effected it since then. The water has to be backup again. There was nothing happening in the channel. One hit.
