Fishing has been very good the last week here on Pool 9.  Late last week we fished panfish with good success on crappies and bluegills.  Each day we boated some slab crappies that were nearly 14 inches in length.  Live minnows around logs and laydowns produced as well as jigs tipped with gulp or powerbait.  Yesterday's bass trip was a blast!  The guys are from Indiana and had pool 9 on their "bucket list"  Steady bite all day, with several really nice quality largemouth. The fish appear to be moving into fall patterns and are starting to group up chasing schools of shad and minnows.  

The river levels are very low right now, under 8' at Lansing.  Caution is advised!  Thanks for reading my reports and have a good week!

Report for this last weekends fishing. River really dropping last few days, don't know what took it so long, with the dry spell we've had. Saturday's panfish trip started slow, with the river dropping like it is fish moved from where they were. Hunted around and ended up with a good mess of perch and gills. Multi species trip today, fished most of the day for walleyes, spent the last couple hours panfishing. Caught 4 good eater size eyes, lots of shorts. Caught walleyes casting cranks to wing dams, trolling running sloughs, and dragging crawlers in running sloughs. Had the tri-fecta panfish perch, gills, & crappie. Beautiful weather, great time on the river. See ya on the river

Another great panfish trip with Mark and Brian today.   Crappie to 13 inches and bluegills to 10.  They kept around 40 fish and probably threw back 3 times that many!  Great day on Pool 9!

Trip today with newlyweds Justin & Stacy. Justin called a few days ago and explained that they were getting married on Saturday would be honeymooning in the area and wanted to go fishing on Monday. I said "you're getting married on Saturday and your bride wants to go fishing Monday?", he said ya! I said Justin you found a good woman, she's a keeper! Anyway, we fished for walleyes caught a bunch of shorts and a couple keepers. Caught 3 nice perch in one slough dragging crawlers for eyes, have to go back and check that out. We switched over to jigging for cats the last couple hours. Boated 3 and lost a couple right at the net. Justin's biggest cat a 12#er.

See ya on the river

Fished with Denny and Mark the last couple of days.  Thursday afternoon we targeted crappies and had good success boxing 23 nice ones.  Yesterday we switched over and fished walleyes.  Pretty good morning catching 7 keepers trolling crankbaits in around 8 foot of water.  Weeds were not bad yet!  

Beautiful fall weather is here!  Cool mornings and nice warm afternoons.  The trees are starting to change and fall colors will be here soon!  The river is in good shape with the water temperature right around 65 degrees.  Thanks for reading my reports and have a great weekend!
