Fished BSL a couple times this past weekend. Target was Walleyes even though they run small, still targeted them. Choice of baits this weekend was a jig and minnow. Caught maybe a dozen little walleyes in the 10"-12" range. Even caught a 12" perch that I will have to post a picture of later from my phone. Pretty tough when the perch are bigger than the walleyes!

Crappies have been tough this year. In fact they were tough last winter too. Walleyes which are usually tough up here have come easily this summer.
I was up last weekend and the bite was good on Sunday and Monday. I was fishing main lake structure in 16-9 FTOW. Pearch colored spinners and hammered gold triple hook harness produced with a crawler. My son and I boated roughly 20 walleyes and some Northern.
Zwiegs, over the July 4th week we had the mayfly hatch, tough fishing with all the boat traffic but once the wind picked up I was able to pick up some eyes on the main basin.
this past weekend less boat traffic and some wind but the eye bite was tougher, maybe they're filled up on mayflies.
surface water temp is now over 80 deg in the main lake.
