Better largemouth action can be found down river from massey. In front of Chestnut Mountain. Chatter baits and shallow cranks. There are lily oads for some topwater frog axtion right in front of the slopes. All of the cross sloughs and fronts of the islands that have stumps or wood hold fish.The high water is making seeing stumps tough but look for boils and throw in front and behind them. Double willow blade brown spinnerbaits are tough to beat. Green,Stone and Tippys around Massey will have fish and be sure to fish your way into Tippys from the lower end. Spruce creek ramp gives you quick access to the top of the dam and as the water drops fish the emerging reeds with current on edges of points with the spinner bait. A lot of Bass under the train bridge at Tete des mortes creek.Crawdad cranks like a bomber or jointed shad rap. I pitch ringworms to the deep water right under the trestle. Hope this helps. Good luck Tounge Out

Hey guys,

havent been on pool 12 to chase large and smallmouth much lately. If anybody could point me in the right direction in the upper and mid pool area that would be great. I launch out of midtown from time to time and do okay in that area down to the menominee barge channel that's lined with rocks. I'm thinking of putting in at massey and fishing the green lake area south of the marina and then I believe what is called the menominee slough? that starts north of the that area and twists around and dumps into deadmans slough a couple miles down. Any direction would be great on various areas to try would be great.

Fished 2 days last weekend out of Mud Lake. Saturday was windy and raining. Pulled on the lead dam upstream from the ramp and found it was protected from the wind and fishable. Rigged it with leeches and crawlers and had few bites. Caught one 17 inch sauger trolling cranks out in front of the dam. Tried pulling harnesses in deep current breaks but no bites. Sunday the walleye club tournament showed how bad the bite was. Only one limit was caught out of 17 boats and 7 boats zeroed. Ouch! Lots of debris in the eddies on the iowa side but you could still see your jig a foot down. Crawlers and leeches took most the fish. Lo Everyone who caught fish fished from cassville up river.

Put in at Finleys Landing last night and headed to some wing dams. You could see your jig about a foot down yet which surprised me. Water is on the rise and the flow was strong. Ran up river and tried rigging a closing dam in a back slough. 1 ounce jig wasnt enough to stay in front of the dam with a big plastic on so i took the plastic off and added a leech. That helped the jig stay in front of the dam but still no bites. Ran the lowrance across the face of a number of dams withiut marking any fish. Eddies near shore had some fish above the dams but a lot of debris to fish around. Moved down to the wingdam across from finleys and watch gar with their whole bodies out of the water rubbing on the rocks. Still no fish on cranks or crawlers there. Moved down to the nex wing dam and it was fishable but still no bites. Walleye club tournament ouy of Mud Lake this Sunday i hope i figure something out saturday that will catch fish. Worried

Left the ramp at guttenburg with my daughter and her boyfriend and their friend. Stopped at a wingdam down river a few miles to throw cranks. Its my daughters favorite way to fish for walleyes. No bites so jumped on the wingdam below it and i had a strike on the first cast. Second cast netted a 22 incher. While they wereeasuring it i threw back in a caught a second 23 incher. I decided to let them have achanve so i drove the boat and the three threw for the next 20 minutes without a bite. I got a dubuque rig rod out and dropped a crawler on a slow death hook over and bang oneor 23 incher. That was it for walleye the reat of the day until John caught a small one and a sauger. We ended up with a few bass and ahould of rigged more with crawlers and leeches but throwing cranks is what they wanted to do. Great time on the water with little traffic. Matzuo tournament crank took the big eyes

The Mississippi Walleye club had a tournament Sunday out of Bellevue pool 13. Pre fishing went well with a lot of fish being caught on the wing dams. Live bait took most of the fish using Dubuque rigs. Crawlers, leeches(if you got some saved),and chubs. There were some fish caught using crank baits and using a Rapala on the long line of the Dubuque rig. During the tournament there were only 2 limits caught and 2 fish weighed that were over the 27" mark. Most wig dams were productive at some point in the day but the fish are still feeding for short periods and you have to be there when they are. This will change as the water cools but the heat from last week raised the water temp considerably. The fall bite should start with the cold temps the rest of this week. I can't wait. The Bait Shack in Dubuque is having a walleye tournament Sunday out of Dubuque but you can fish Pools 11,12 and 13. $100 entry fee with door prizes and 100% payback. Stop in to the Bait Shack for details. See ya on the water! Evil Grin
