Was out solo on Tuesday from 10am till 2pm did a lot of looking with depthfinder and did find good fish but they were not having any me today this was in 22 to 28 feet. I also spent a couple hours idling around in 60 to 120 ft lots of fish in 80 feet only to be blanked (at least I could see them come up to bait ) ended up catching a couple largemouth on drop shot in 16ft casting up. Was back out on wed. went back to deep spots with the fish having moved I slid into 40 ft. found a load nd caught one smallmouth but that was it for the c-rig went to drop shot but they would not bite. Made a move stayed in 40ft with c-rig and landed a nice largemouth with a musky trailing so I moved into 26ft. casting in with drop shot and caught a few 2lb largemouth. I made a move and set up in 22ft with a slow drift and caught more little largemouth so I went deep 30ft and drifted with drop shot but nothing. I finished up in 22ft casting drop shot with more little largemouth. Had a two man this morn. we started at 6:30am till 1:30pm we started shallow on top and it was 2lb largemouth at all three spots so we went in 24ft and drop shot around the lake with little largemouth at each spot but only one or two then we had to move to get more bites. Have had a challenge but with great cliants its always a blast.

I don't know about the rest of the lake linkers who fish this lake but I can say I'm ready for lakers through the ice. Hopefully it's a cold winter cause last winter we were limited on spots to go due to sketchy ice conditions. Lots of walking too! Fingers crossed and hope for the best cause before you know it boats will be in storage soon!

This was longtime friend Tom that I work with many years ago he is 78 years old and loves to go fishing, taught him how to fish a wacky worm and that's all he does now but the good thing is I don't have to worry about Nightcrawler dirt in my boat anymore LOL he did get nine Largemouth this morning with the biggest being 18.5 inches long. I know all of you probably have an old friend that have not been on the water for many years maybe he or she is up in years or disabled reach out and take them out on the water, they will feel great for you asking and you will feel good for doing so, good luck on the water
