Tried yesterday afternoon battery took a dump so had no electronics for depth or water temps so came in before dark.....got skunked not a hit. Wanted to get minnows but Din's was out. Dont think lake turned yet as water is crystal clear and usually clouds up if that happens. Weeds are down all over. With the leaves down can really see all the tree damage especially the east shore. About a half dozen other boats out and Bensons dock is still in.

Got out this evening after the fishing club tourny. The cold front that blasted thru Friday sent the fish deep and it was a slow day for most of the fisherman. SE wind on this lake is not a good producer for me as I was skunked. The tornado that went thru a few weeks back did alot of tree damage. Quite noticeable on the east shore alot of uprooted trees. Fortunately no one was hurt, but alot of cleanup is yet to be done.
It was a great day fishing on the lake yesterday except for the jet ski and the skier she was pulling buzzing us when we were fishing close to shore and the marker buoys along both beaches. When I mention this to a member of her party at the dock, he laughed and walked away. For safety reasons, the marker buoys should be moved out ten feet so that people swimming might have near them could be safer from operators of ski boats and jet skis like hers. If the area of the lake south of the launch was made a no wake zone along with the current no wake zone near the beeches and launch, it would force the water skiers and jet boat operators to move further north up the lake away from the swimmers, fisherman and paddlers.

Gave 'er a whirl last nite from 5-10 after the boat traffic quit at 6 was quite peaceful. Remember a few months back when i reported on the Bullheads I saw....well found em underneath my slip bobbers using leaches.....man those tough jaws they are hard to get off the hook. Had a blast catching them along with numerous Rockbass. Water temps low 80's. Lot of Deer south of Dundee headin home keep your eyes peeled.

Worked mid lake north for a few hours this evening. Water temps 65-66 still alot of pond scum especially on Tittle.Only managed a few hammer handles. I saw only one school of Carp and that was north of Doc's point they were very active. After dark one Carp boat was out, but watching them didnt notice much activity. I was also shining and the bugs were nasty keep your mouth shut as you motor around or you'll be pickin em out of your teeth Forgot to add they sprayed the weeds yesterday they posted notices around lake how many acres an where they sprayed check with lake assoc
