Killin"the715 , nice report Beelzebob always enjoy reading your reports, there have indeed been some tough bite recently.

Flat water and a recent bug, loose track of the days I think it was Tue. or Wed. night, it was a pretty sizable hatch of the larger hex variety. There is often more than one hatch I would guess we might see more.

On one recent day since last report we fished in on and off 20 mph winds off and on thunder and rain and had a nice catch of walleyes and perch in shallow structure and weeds. Kept a limit of 9 and released probably two walleyes for each one put in the livewell. After catching 25-30 walleyes and finding active fish on everything we fished, I took another customer out for a few hours. An hour had lapsed, ( a mess of fish to clean) the water had gone completely flat the sky had turned an eerily dark color, strange feeling kind of gloomy. We fished 8 spots , I never had a walleye bite, that's how fast the fish can change their mind.I had water sloshing in my shoes customer wanted to talk about moose hunting, offered to go to the bar and have a couple beers instead, I said,"Corey I'll do whatever you want to do", we went fishing I guess I called that one wrong.

Last few days a lot of flat water with bright skies, we have been catching some nice fish, mostly working wood structure in the 10-14' depths. Not big numbers of fish but some bigger walleyes, but spending a lot of time looking for them, catching one here another there. We have had some nice perch in the mix of walleyes, some days smallmouth from 14-17" our biggest so far 19-1/2" on the day mentioned above with the big wind blowing. 

I don't do much drift fishing any more, a few days back on a really slow bite day we had only 3 walleyes in the livewell near days end we spent the last 45 minutes drifting a 7-8' wood flat and picked up three more nice fish, 5 of the 6 were 16-19".

It might not feel like it some days but the fish are out there, they aren't always cooperative.

Been using 1/2 crawlers and have had a few days now when leeches did better, I suggest you bring both.

Good luck out there.

I launch at Springstead, very improved launch with plenty of parking. Are you camping also? I am heading up at noon today. Good luck maybe we will run into each other, but not literally. ;)

Going to the flowage this weekend for the first time. What launch do you guys recommend using? I was thinking either fisherman’s or springstead.

Thanks.

Arrived back home yesterday, my first TFF trip of the year was certainly a memorable one. I arrived on Friday and was lucky enough to get a break in the weather to set up camp. I launched from fisherman’s, and by the end of the weekend it seemed I had the flowage to myself. Did see Robl out there a few times. Caught plenty of fish when the weather permitted. Managed to put a musky in the net every day and had a couple opportunities at big fish. The Muskies were definitely on the feed during the insane weather, and were still roaming the shallows. Weed growth seemed optimal for casting, cabbage and lily pads just starting to top out. One fish did come from deeper water off an extended sandy point but that seemed to be the one exception. Most came on bucktails, though the big follows came from topwater. I did have some action using a large swimming dawg but only from hammerhandles. I left Tuesday morning, and the black flies and mosquitos were horrible.
