Less bait thieving stripers but, no walleyes either. Able to work surface & shallow draft baits over top weeds. Few small bass blowing up big baits, small norts too. Kid had big musky follow up and nose bait on fig 8, he landed fat nort. I keep missing.

Water cleared up and dropping. Able to see plenty new gill beds in 3-5fow. Carp basking on top weedbeds should be easy targets. Slonowake for cpl/few days yet. Some people can't see the big red/white signs it seems?

Surf temp down to 71, water over docks, lawns, marshes flooded. Saw a few carp splash n rolling west end and down river. Heard more out in marsh along river. Not many. Didn't have bow along or I'ld be stalking the marshpigs in tall flooded  grass. Can be exciting if they spook and charge towards river, knock ya down and run ya over.

    Couldn't get the big musky to take a 2nd look last evening after followup in morning. Little stripers chase and nip bucktails bigger than they are. Yet, they wouldn't eat the leech I dragged along.

SLOWNOWAKE order signed signs will be up shortly. Was a foot high last week then have had nearly 6" rain since last Thur. Weeds choking river outlet so, won't go away for long time.


Walleyes still biting. Able to get through the greedy horde of stripers to land cpl keepers this morning. Leeches stay on hook better than crawler chunks but, they like both. Using heavier jigs than normal for 8-12 fow just to get bait down faster so eyes get a chance.

Catfish population is wayyy high. Channel cats about the likeliest catch no matter what you fish  for, can't keep em off the hook. They are fun but, get to be a nuisance if trying for other species. On rare occassions might see a flathead also.

Are there cat fish in swan? Was thinking of trying to hit the big drop off towards the west if there are.

Fri morning after hail and  lightning let up went looking for walleye dinner. Found a few, some keepers too. But, not long and 2doz leeches gone and can hardly get a crawler down 8-10 fow to reach any eyes. Little stripers and gills nipping the bait off. Tougher leech gets down in one piece occassionally. Later  switched to larger shallow gills still spawning. Tried eyes w crawler pieces again after noon till got hot and running out of worms. Good time to take kids out for action on edge of weedbeds on break. Take a lot of bait! Cats &  sheep taking a share too

Fished Swan for only the 2nd time looking for crappies. Ended up catching 2 walleyes (both about 10") and an upper teens cat. Never could find the crappies. I was trolling flicker shads in 12-20 FOW on the outside edges of weed beds. Lots of carp starting to splash around in the shallow weeds on the east end of the lake
