Got back to pool 8 for an overnight trip. Fish 10am-8pm on Friday, and 6am-noon on Saturday. Always love fishing, but every time its almost a completely different place. Water was 5' lower than last time, but fishing was still hot. Ended up with 33 lmb, 26 pike, and 21 smb. Lots of fish, with some big ones.

I'm looking to come over Saturday morning with my daughter. I was wondering how the walleye bite has been. I don't mind a multi species trip, nor am I looking for hot spots. I'm just trying to figure out what gear to bring along. I'd rather not fill the boat with trolling gear, it all I need is a dead stick and jigging rod. Maybe we should just set up for pan fish with lighter gear. Any information would be much appreciated, and thank you in advance.

Caught over 50 bluegills in 3 hrs late afternoon in 4-8 fow. My relatives from Oregon had a blast! Also catfish, rockbass and 5+ lb sheepshead. Fished the sloughs along downed timber. Thanks Drewster, Muggs and this website. Will get out more this week.
