Got to the lake around 6 and fished until 1. Caught 5 species including LM, rock bass, perch, sunfish and bluegills. Most on 1/32 oz tipped jig in 4-6 feet of water. Weeds were a chore and we switched the kids to jigs under a float pretty quickly. Lots of bluegill which is always fun for the kids, one boy pulled out a 14 inch LM which was nice to see. All fish still swimming. Lake was pretty quiet for a Sunday I felt but water is pretty low, to the point that I bump a log on the way out of the channel which never happens so not sure if that is affecting the traffic.

We got out at 6:30 this morning and I noticed that the water level was down about a foot at the launch. Targeted LM Bass boating 5 and my first ever SM Bass at 15". 2 Pike, stunted in our opinion at 23-24", with huge heads. Slowed after the first hour and half with very few guys out this morning. Nice morning, needed to get home and cut the grass. Spinnerbaits took all the fish this morning. I also noticed that the water mark on the reeds at the south end also showed water level about a foot low. Need rain!
Tite Lines !
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
