Has anyone had any luck fishing muskie or northern?
Bass has been lighting up last couple weeks only to get better! Football jigs, swimbait, spinners, swim jigs, Texas rig, frogs all been hitting. Haven't used any crank bait or lipless yet due to having really good success with what I've been doing, my buddy has been starting to use flukes. Go with natural color on all your baits or white jerk minnows work as well. Can't give away my spots lol but docks, rock edges, hard bottoms, weed edges have been key. Work your baits fast as their appetite will start going up. All the pictures are within a 3 week span and I don't plan on switching anything up dramatically unless water clarity really changes which I don't see happening this year.
Find that 14 foot mark and drift crawlers. Was out 7/29 for 6 hours doing just that and got 16 nice gills (all over 8 inches) and twice as many dinks. Saw the biggest muskie I have ever seen floating dead on the way to my gill spot. Must of been 55 inches. Head on it was huge. Caught my gills in 2 hours or less. Rest of the time was pleasure boating and checking out bikini chicks. :) Was hoping to get into some gamefish but it didn't happen. Pea soup water can be very hard to fish but the gills were biting! Hit a couple bars via the boat and had an over all great time with my buddy Josh. Will be back in fall.

I finally had a chance to get out and put in some good hours fishing. Bass were active in the 6-8 ft range on the weed edges. Tossed crankbaits and caught fish pretty regularly. Had a few decent walleye mixed in with the bass. When the crank bite slowed we worked shaded shorline with rocks and downed trees. Pulled a few nice ones off an island. 3lb 4oz and 4lb 5oz.

I just couldn't put it together on the 4th. I caught a few dinks and one nice bass. I used jigs, creature baits, buzz baits, spinner baits and moved fast. I had a dock bite but everyone was out on the docks for the holiday and that just didn't work. I hope you guys did better then I did!

I was able to fish from 11:00-2:00 today which was pretty much right during the rain LOL! I tried my best! We caught one pike, one decent Eye, and a giant crappie. Cant wait to get back out when I have a little more time.
