Fished with Jeff today, 07/23, from 0630-2:30pm.  Went south from State park launch and found a giant school of whitebass busting on the surface.  They were in the current just south of  Nippersink creek.  We caught about 30 fish, mostly 8 inchers  with only 3 bigger ones.  They hit small rippin raps and fin s fish.  We headed to pistakee bay and caught some very large gills and small crappies near boat lifts and piers.  We used small plastics under bobbers set about 2 ft down.  Water temp 81 degrees.

Out for about 5 hours yesterday into the evening.  Caught three eyes 20" and two at 12".  All came on crawlers.  Also caught some goats, gills, perch, yellow bass, and a cat.  The lake was glass when I got off.  Saw some trollers out and saw the nets come out a few times.  Lots of larger muskies on the surface towards dark.

Found a few tonight trolling. 14.5”/15.5” and a hog 26.5”. Bad pic, but heavy sob. Of course brought nothing with to weigh him. Great evening to be out. Happy Father’s Day

Took my sister out today to catch some bluegills. Started off on Marie in East Bay and marked way more lookers than biters. Made a move to airport bay on Bluff and it was slow. Moved to the north side of channel and found them in weed pockets. They aren’t next to shore but they’re still shallow. Boat traffic not too bad today. Very nice day on the chain. We didn’t catch many that could have kept but we were releasing all fish today anyway. Great spot for action for the kids, not so much for the stringer.

What's the launch like on hwy 173 on the state park? Is it open? How deep is the channel and does it get crowded during the week. Seems like everything has been crowded lately, people need to go back to work.

Launched out of the Turtle at 9 and headed to Bluff. Water 69-70 when I started. No action on Bluff so went to Marie and caught a small musky (26ish) in 14ft. Headed to Channel and landed a very nice 40 inch fish that cut me good. I had an entire afternoon to get a 3rd fish and had 2 chances but I lost both fish. Water temp warmed to 72 in most areas by 3pm. Floating weeds were becoming a major problem on Channel. Marie and Bluff pretty clean.
