Gills were on fire this afternoon. All fish were in 6 feet of water.

Fox is on my list of lakes to fish sometime soon, mostly for bass. I see talk of lots of pike, I know it is a 32 inch size limit one fish for pike, just wondering if many guys are getting fish over 32 inches. Pike over 30 inches not the easiest to find, they mostly annoy me until they get over 34 inches then I don't mind the jig eating toothy critters.

Northerns continue to hit over the week of the 4th - nothing huge - but strong northerns that are hungry and feeding early dusk. There are some monsters (northerns and muskies) under that water and we'll find some eventually. Weeds seem to be much better this year - areas you couldn't cast this time of year are clear !
I think it might be time to start taking some pike home to eat I have never seen so many pike in this lake. Fishing the docks I caught pike, fishing the weed edge more pike fishing the slop even more pike LOL! I am like the only guy that cant get a giant bass on the lake right now haha! It was a great 4th I hope all my lake link friends (and enemies) had a great independence day! :)

Fished today 7-11, 2 of us in the boat. Hit some spots in 14 fow that have produced perch in the past, nothing but gills. All of them are like 6" long, bummer, 1 year away from keeping size. The last 2 trips they have been hammering the bugs, a little frustrating at times but still fun. We also hit some fish cribs we found with the sidescan, just gills there too. Decided to drift with the south wind, picked up 2 crappies and yes, more gills. Got a chance to play with the drift sock, only knocked our speed down .1, a little bummer by that.
There were a few trollers and lots of action around various islands.
