Was out yesterday morning and was shocked to see the lake. Big thick weed clumps floating all over the lake. Couldn’t even fish because as my line came in it gathered more and more weeds. It’s got to be a combination of the heat, no wind and no rain. I’ve fished there for forty years and never seen it like this. Any thoughts?

Had a good day on the lake. Caught about 12 bass. All were up shallow. I found them all over the lake.
I found a pfd on Harlem on my way home. If you lost it message me brand, color and type and I can arrange to get it back to you.

Fished on Friday. Pretty day and the park was crowded. 10 rigs in the lot at 7am. Water temp 72ish degrees and pretty dirty. Split time between muskie and bass. I had one follow. I did some trolling for muskie and couldn't believe amount of bait fish out there.
i'm going to the park sat morning,what time does the gate open ? fishing olson lake with top waters and floating stick baits ! with the high water need to make some noise ! what do u think ?
51° - 55° F
Finally got out to test the waters today. It was windy & cold and everyone was paying close attention to social distancing and PPE - how times have changed.
Managed to catch and release two largemouth bass, one at 1-1/2 lbs and the other at just a little over 2 lbs (no photo's this trip).
I was happy to be outside with the sun on my face and the wind in my hair just enjoying the great out doors once again.
Yea its muddy but fish still bite
Could anyone please tell me a rough estimate of the water clarity on pierce lake? Just curious with all this rain if it's real muddy as shabbona had zero visibility. Just wondering if I'll be able to see my lure. Thanks in advance
