Pretty good morning on East Loon (once we got out through the weeds). 7 fish in four hours from 13” to 18”. These two were 18 and 17. Four inch black Senkos wacky rigged with 2/0 octupus hook, fished in 12’ at the base off weedlines were the ticket. Nothing on cranks today.
Was there last Saturday. Fished in the rain. Went looking for crappies and only caught 1. Caught it on a jerkbait. was almost 14". Got 1 nine inch gill and a handfull of small ones. Caught a few bass that were eating schooling perch. Biggest was close to 4lbs. Also got one small musky. By small, it was maybe 20" at best. Grubs outperformed live bait. Aside from the bass, fish were scattered.

Fished Loon on May 14. No wind, lake is almost a foot high. Launching was an adventure because the dock was under water. South end of lake was very dirty. North end was alot clearer. I caught one small large mouth and a bunch of nice bluegills throwing a small rapala along the north shore.

Went out May 1st from 2-6pm. Wind was howling 25+mph south west. Water temps were 56-61 degrees. Jerk bait suspending (drag and a twitch) was what the bass wanted. Nothing over 2.5lbs, every fish was 12”-16” in 3-6’ (11 bass overall, all males) where fresh weeds bottoms and lines are growing. This weekend should be on fire, but opening weekend in Wisconsin so that’s where I will be.
