The water is clearing up and you can see the weedlines now. I spent a few hours last week and a few hours yesterday on the lake. Lots of running around trying to find fish. We caught lots of small - medium sized pike but the big female bass where a lot harder to catch. When the weeds come up real thick his lake is gonna be super fun for catching those giant bass!
This weekend I was picking up some green weeds while fishing. Didn't fish Blackhawk trail shoreline however. The water was still too murky to see much so I couldn't spot any panfish. Water cooled off about 8 degrees from the previous weekend. A good warmup should get the fish really going. Hopefully if it stops raining the water will clear up a little bit.

Same question as the last post. Coming up this weekend and curious how the weed growth is off Blackhawk Trail Shoreline and if anyone is hearing or seeing spawning Crappies (& bluegills) being caught. With the 75+ degree weather several days in a row the next two weekends should be very nice for Pan fishing - through Memorial Day.
