It was a 10 species day with Jeff on the Chain Fri July 30th. We fished Channel, Cathrine, Marie, and Bluff from 0700-1400. We caught LM Bass, crappies, bluegills, white bass, yellow bass, sheephead, perch, a 15 inch walleye, and the fish of the day, 34 inch Musky! We used panfish plastics, a Fin s fish on a 1/16 jig or hook and crawler. Best bite was in the weeds or near piers in 4-6ft of water.Water temp 81.1 all over and the fish felt like they were cooked already! Couldn’t locate any deep water fish on electronics but boat traffic got busy and we called it a day.

Out yesterday for about 6 hours. Fished jigs and crawlers/leeches. Walleyes were hard to locate with only three in the boat 15.5,19, and an approximate 27/28 that came off when I tried to grab it as opposed to netting it. Caught a lot of whites on spinners. Friend kept about 8 whites. A lot of 5” whites too stay busy One big cat about 25” while jigging also. Weather was nice and boat traffic was pretty much zero being a Monday.
Thought I might do some bow fishing for carp for the first time. Does anybody know if any marinas have a dumpster for dead carp? If not whats the suggested way to dispose of them?

Slow yesterday fished for about 6 hours and no eyes. Tried many spots but only a few goats and whiteys. Slips, jigging, and throwing a spinner. Not as much boat traffic as I thought there would be for a holiday. Did see a very large dead Muskie guessing 45” or bigger on a shoreline on Marie. Looked to be bigger than one I saw last week.

Fished yesterday with a few “friends”. Had to run and gun to find the eyes. We fished all over. Talked to a few others who did about the same as us Jigs and minnows or crawlers. Goats were very active and kept us busy. All fish were released for another day. Boat traffic wasn’t bad think the weather kept a lot of the pleasure boaters off the water.
