This is just north of UFO bar correct ?
Or is it that stream that cuts between the cottages
HWY 67 to be closed to install a box culvert between lakeview rd and boyscout rd. starting Sept 11. A project fought for by the Long Lake Fishing Club,DNR fish biologists, and others to improve fish habitat at Willow creek in the north channel. Full article in Fond du lac Co. Reporter. Just a heads up for launching boats on that side of the lake. Hopefully more spawning sites will be made available for native fish.
1st time out in my boat this summer. Osprey and Eagles were catching fish and I actually landed a few. Smaller one 5" ,bigger 16" .Even Perch were hitting the Rapala. All action came on the inside edge of the weed line. Water temps in the low 70's. Guy in green was waiting for me at the UFO bar when I stopped for Fishfry :-)
Volunteered Friday with Take a Vet Fishing and Camp Hometown Heroes. I myself took about 15 different kids out and about 4 counselors rotating about every half hour. Every kid of a fallen hero was able to put a fish in the boat some catching some nice bass. What a great day and the look on these kids faces was priceless. Big shout out to these organizations for what they do and I cant wait to do it again next year.
Windy Sunday the 11th. Could not get on any Panfish with regularity, and caught this fella hanging around a deep dock. Floating jointed Rapala of all things.
Did manage a 34" no body Northern two weeks prior.
I was out the same time you were, yea 3 boats clearly have no clue what no wake is about. Even a guy on a pontoon rolling threw, I threw up my arms and gestated slow down. He looked at me and thought ohh well.
Locator showed 15-18 feet crappies, stubborn for me only got 4. I need to switch it up with some jigs. Anything you use that works well tipped with minnow ?
Surface temps 60 Saturday morning early, I did not check after 6:00am. Got some crappies deep (18-24FOW) and they felt much colder. I left the lake at 9:30am and there was a warden launching and a different guy waiting for the launch to clear to load up. He was sipping a beer as he was putting around by the launch, the warden noticed and told the guy they needed to have a talk on shore(ticket or warning for sure). The launch was clogged with kayaks as usual, and a few guys who do not know or understand what SLOW NO WAKE is. My son and I kept enough crappies for a good fry this afternoon, I'll post a picture later if I have time.......... The crappies are still a week or two from spawning so I think I will leave them alone for a while to do their thing...........
