So I trolled flicker shads from 9:45 till 11:45 Thursday morning. Picked up 2 nice smallies. Also a 24" northern and a 13" walleye in front of Brumley's dock. Firetiger worked the best. Remember to take a kid fishing.

My family and I will be staying at Brumley's resort in July. Just curious about the lake condition at that time of the year. Is the water stained, or pretty clear? I have seen on previous posts that there can be algae blooms in the Summer time. Is this frequent or a rarity? We are coming from Oregon where we don't have stained lakes. I would imagine that lighter colors (i.e., Whites, and chartreuse would be more effective than darker colors, but sometimes that is a mistake if the local forage are darker in color. Any help would be appreciated, we are catch and release for all but panfish.
Thanks in advance and tight lines to all,
I own a place on the lake , and yes I fished professionally for many years and consider Soo a little different to fish than many other lakes .. But with that being said , there's plenty fish in there .. I would like to see is fishing closed period closed on the lake when it's drawn down .. Who can't catch a fish in a 5 gallon pail ? This needs to happen without a doubt.. Anyone know who to contact to get this acomplised ?

Ive been coming up to lake of the pines for all my life(40 years)....I have fished below the dam all my life. Every year is different for species in there. One year I nailed 12-14" crappies on every cast. One year it was walleyes on every cast. Big bluegills one year. The last couple years have been very slow with limited luck. Hopefully it comes back as I have see a big dropoff in numbers. You have to know how to fish that dam or its frustrating.
The Phillips chain is always drawn down in the fall for various reasons. The big drawdown a few years back on Soo Lake was for two reasons; dam repair and to kill (freeze out) any plants/seeds from invasive plant species.
The fishery has come back nicely as I fish it often.
