MOON PHASE
Last Quarter

Wind really helped today even though out of the northeast at about 15 mph. Boated 14 LM Bass and 5 Walleye in 2 hours. Fish caught in 5-7 fow on crankbaits. No scum on water like earlier this week and very few weeds picked up casting.

Lost a dandy LM next to the boat that appeared near the 5lb mark with the other Bass at 12-15"

My partner was surprised on the walleyes we caught.

Got out on the 4th at about 7am.  The launch only had a couple of spots left.  Started out of the launch and worked south for Musky.  Threw some topwater and a showgirl.  Lots of weeds fouling the baits.  No hits.  Noticed at about 8am a Jet-skier going full boar in the No wake area on the West side.  Then they blasted across the lake toward the beach and back to the west side again.  Shortly again they went back to the beach...I guess no wake doesn't apply to them.  Then noticed a couple of fishermen running at full blast.  As I started working the North side for Largemouth, a couple of pleasure boats running at wake speeds.  I wish the boat cops were out there, they would have been able write 5 tickets and make some $$$.  Had a couple of bass take a swipe at my spinner bait, but didn't connect.  Also had one on my Shad Rap, but it broke water, did a head shake and spit the bait.  The only fish I pulled in was a Big sunfish...on my spinnerbait and a perch that was snagged on the spinnerbait.  

Got out of there at about 10:30am when the lake was filling up with pleasure boaters.  Only had a short wait at the launch

Fished Monday and Tuesday mornings. Most fish moved off the drop offs and found them cruising the main lake 15 to 20 feet down. From the amount of algae and scum it looked like the water is getting pretty low oxygen and the thermocline is deeper. Typical mid summer fishing. Fish were very skittish and the only action was to sit and quietly wait for a school to pass by. Like the previous poster most of the action came from walleyes. 14, 15 inchers. Biggest disappointment was from fishermen that could not comprehend the no wake rules in the early morning.  have no problem turning the lake over to pleasure boaters after 10 but its annoying as hell being buzzed by a group of fishermen at 8am and watch to fish finder go blank.

Hit Silver this morning for a couple hours unable to get much action on the LM Bass. Got one at 15 and had a Pike or Musky hit at the boat boiling the water.

Went to a different area where there was some ripple on the water instead of weed covered calm water. Changed up on the baits we were throwing and boated 5 walleyes in about 20 -30 minutes. 

All cookie cutter fish around 15-16" that appeared very healthy fish. Was a surprise to us on the walleye action. In a couple years maybe they will be keepers.

Tite Lines!

Got out this morning a little later than I had wanted to.  Started at about 7:30 chunking for Bass.  Went to the Northwest corner and let the wind move me across the lake.  Picked up a 3lb Largemouth to start with.  Had another one blow up on my lure shortly after, but didn't hook up.  Then as I moved east got a smaller bass and then a dink.  At 9:30 and 1 second, the pleasure boaters started tearing it up.  I did go and head to the East side and worked towards the launch for Musky before I left.  Nothing.  The launch was completely filled when I left at about 10:30.  The wind on the lake kept me cool, but when I was at the launch area clearing the rig of invasive species, there was no breeze and I was dripping with sweat.

Went out for the first trip of the season last night.  Mostly was to just shake out the boat for the season and only fished for 1 hour from 6-7.  Water Temp at the launch was 78 and in the main lake was 74.  Wind was from the East.   

I was casting a silver Baby Girl for Musky.  Weeds were still a few feet from the surface and saw a little bit of green algae.  Had a small Silver Lake special pike swipe at the bait, but didn't connect.  Other than that, nothing.  I stuck to the East side near the drop off casting into the shallower side. 

Boat ran like a champ, so mission accomplished.  

There was a guy sitting on his chair on the launch pier, which made things a bit more difficult to launch, who was casting crawlers on a bobber and he picked up a couple of bass and panfish.

The warm days we have had, has really made the water temps jump. Straight across from the boat launch registered 82.4f. Closer to the bars it dropped to 80.2f. The weeds and algae bloom have gone crazy. Such a change in a couple days. Decent action considering the Indy 500 on the water. The most consistent bite is at 8ft deep.

Went out in the evening after work. Water temp 72.4f. My wife caught several fish off the robo worm. Silver Lake is becoming a great evening lake. No crazy wind gust and less boat traffic. Couldn't really find a pattern but the weather and conditions were perfect!
