Wednesday night bass tournament results - the rain didn't stop a bunch of us from fishing. Craig P had a great night taking both first place with an 18 1/8" and second place with an 18". Matt M took third with a 16 3/8. 

Starting next Wednesday we are going to quit fishing at 8:30pm as the days are getting shorter.  

We still have several weeks of fishing left.  All are welcome to fish.

Remember to clean all the weeds off your trailer after you've pulled out of the launch.  The DNR can, and will, write you a ticket if they see your trailer with weeds on it.  They are trying to prevent the further spread of invasive species.

The caution tape around the dam was removed quite some time ago.

Does anyone know the lake water temperature?

Wednesday night bass tournament report:  Tough bite again last night but we avoided most of the rain and a few nice fish came in.  Adam B won last night with an 18 3/4.  We didn't have a real big turnout, but his first place fish won him $ 162 and a free cheeseburger and fries from Sandy's tavern. Steve V took second with an 18 5/8.  Randy B took third place with a chunky 17 5/8".

We fish from 6 - 9pm.  We allow people to come late.  If you're running behind, no worries.  Either look for me (red & black Ranger 519VX with a merc on the back) or find another tournament boat and give them your entry fee and show them your livewells.  

Fishing goes until mid-September and we fish in sun or rain.  New fishermen are always welcome.

Wednesday night bass tournament results:   Some nice fish came in again last night.  John W won with an 18 1/2, and also took third with a 17 7/8".  Mike S. took second with an 18 1/4.  While those are some nice fish, not everyone is getting them every week.  Yours truly had a tough, tough night.  We boated one pike, one warmouth, and one dogfish last night!

The public launch was re-opened this morning, and the no-wake rule was lifted early this afternoon.  We will run the Wednesday night bass tournament as planned tomorrow night.

***Effectively immediately, all public access points to Upper and Lower Phantom Lakes are temporarily closed due to the water levels.  Local police and DPW are asking that all boaters, including lake residents, stay off the water to prevent damage to piers/docks and lessen the possibility of a piece of bog breaking off and blocking the dam.***
