Took off work this morn to fish. Just got back. Could not find the walleye but I caught about a 19" SMB, a measured 20" lmb, and I had a maybe 26"-28" pike right at the boat but lost it. Pike wasn't even hooked, just real determined. Bluegill bait under a float about 7' between float and hook, 15'-25' of water.

I see a lot of fisherman on this lake casting on the wrong side of the boat- the bigger fish are towards the deep in the summer not towards shore. I catch plenty big blue gills about 10'-5' off the bottom in 25' of water. They hit my spinner before it drop down into walleye territory.

Plan on hitting the lakes tomorrow about 6 am. No reports lately. Anyone doing anything here. Not looking for any secret spots. Just checking in

Night Eyes, I would personally guess a good distance, if two boats are casting, is to stay far enough away so that if someone on each boat casts toward the other boat, the lure/bait from each cast could not cross paths or reach one another. Now, I think just being courteous, in general is the key; but, people have different opinions about that. If two boats were trolling, or were anchored and jigging or bobber fishing right under the boat, then I wouldn't be upset if the other boat were a little closer than casting distance. It's really when the other boat is right where I had been casting--would seem appropriate not to pull up right in that area :-)

Ok thanks hall. Snorkel when you pull in the launch you pull up towards the bathroom and back down.

Is there a turn around at the launch?  From Google maps it looks like there is no turn around.

Can't say with 100% certainty, but I've parked without a trailer and paid, and it wasn't a problem.  The park system truck was there as I was about to leave, they saw me and there were no issues.  I saw a couple vehicles parked today in trailer spots.

Can anyone vouch for sure if non trailer vehicles can still park in the trailer spots if they pay? I don't remember off hand.

Not much to report in the way of bluegills. Worked all depths and caught two keepers and one released bass. I also didn't see any active spawning beds, just a lot of dinks in the shallows. Got a nice visit from the warden also only this time I had my life jacket aboard. Last time I fished the lower (about 15 years ago) it cost me $70. He told me this morning he'd gotten reports the gills were suspended and not spawning yet. That could be as one of the two I did keep had some eggs but by no means full. Never marked or caught anything on a slow drift over 27 fow. Finished on Nashota and picked up only three more. That lake appears from what I saw, to have a lot of six and seven inch gills around the piers but this fisherman never found the keepers in numbers. Fishing wasn't great but good to get out for the first time this year. For the post inquiring about clearance under I-94, I own a 14' Alumacraft with a fisherman's chair mounted on a john boat swivel on the bench seat all which adds a little height and my head wasn't too far from the bottom of the bridge. Hope this helps. Tight lines.

Sharp486,

"..or something like that". Those wake board boats are designed specifically so that they can hardly plane. They are designed to disturb the water. They are a nussiance in my opinion. I don't want wakeboarding regulated, but I do hope the big wake boats self regulate. There is plenty of lake in over 40 feet of water. It is pretty inconsiderate of others to to sub-plane at maximum-wake-speed around the fishermen in shallower water.

Went out this morning. Surface was like glass with no wind. Ran the boat over about a half dozen school of very spooky dink walleye on the shore side of a weed bed. Anchored on the deep side of same weeds and caught two LMB about 14" and about a 16" eye. All released.
