1 shot. I'm confused by your post but never too old to learn. How is it a no wake in low water would be better to enforce than in high water?

We spent 6 hours on the river today fishing from the launch to the mouth. Not one fish! Water is too low and hardly any fish marked on the graph. We spoke to several other fishermen who seemed to have the same luck as we did with most thinking the water was too low. Hardly any current out there today. Attempted to fish the snags for crappie but very shallow and almost impossible to get to the areas. Slipping for walleye in the deeper holes resulted in not one bite.

Perhaps another time!, C'mon Rains!

Just got in a fresh batch of leeches, crawlers, and xl tuffy fatheads. I've been hearing a lot about guys catching eyes, crappies and whitebass at Indianford Dam, Blackhawk Island, Bark River Bridge and Jefferson dam. Crawlers and leeches are what's working the best for the eyes. Fatheads for everything else. Won't be long now and the Fall run will kick off in full force!

The slow no wake was lifted on 8/3. They obviously have more pressing business than to remove the signs. That being said some boaters should try to be a bit more respectful to fishermen and not cause hazardous situations.

We fished yesterday afternoon to about 6PM and only caught 1 Walleye & 1 Channel Cat. 

The Walleye was nice, 7lbs we guess it at and the Cat was maybe 12". A few other bites and all on night crawlers on jig heads vertical jigged.

Had my small flat bottom and it got a little scary at times with the speed boats cruising wide open from the 26 Launch to the mouth. 

Posted no wake but the signs don't mean much to some people.

Maybe in September the big guys won't be around so much.

Stay safe!

Did very well with live panfish.  Channels were hitting super hard July 4th weekend.  Only one Flathead caught.  8 lbs.  Largest channel was 18 lbs.  Total of about a dozen fish.  Almost tipped my canoe.  I was near the boat launch under 26.  


The following weekend was not anywhere near as productive.  Only caught 4 channels with all them ranging between 5 and 8 lbs.  Again, live bluegill.  1 was caught on a bluegill that died on the hook.  I simply made an incision on the side of the gill about an inch long.  So I guess you could call that cut bait.  Sorry for the post coming so late after the action.  I will certainly  keep better posting times in the future.  I will be headed back out tonight to the Rock, although I haven't quite chosen a destination yet.  


Tight Lines and Be Safe!

Fished from the bridge down to the mouth on Tuesday from 530-10 with only a catfish and 2 drum being caught. Fished with bright colored 1/8 ounce jigs with crawlers, leaches, and fatheads. Water clarity was very bad. Seemed like only a few inches of visibility.
