Saturdays catch. Before you bash my wife for keeping the bass, it was deeply hooked, and bleeding, she hosed it off before taking pics. Our cats love the rock bass, (and they need to be thinned out of the lake anyway). All fish were caught in less than 3fow, on slip bobbers and a chunk of crawler. As has been the pattern all year, bait needs to under the docks/piers, 2 feet away from the dock you won't catch many

Spent the day on the lake chasing smallies. Water clarity wasn't terrible. When out of the wind in calm water you could barely see bottom in 6-8 foot of water. Ended up catching 32 smallies all day (largest being 19 inches). Fishing got tougher in the afternoon due to all the floating weeds.

mac da gaff,

Pike bite has been slow the last few weeks. Though hooked a 30" one today in Norwegian Bay on the edge of the weed beds in about 17 FOW. Water temp has dropped to 65 so that's good. Maybe it'll pick up. Live bait has worked better than artificials, At least for me. Trout have been hitting good in deep water all summer. That's all I have. Good luck.

Hows the panfish bite these days? Any sharable tips? Taking my 91year old Mother next weekend weather permitting. She loves panfishing but hasnt been out in over 8 years.

Hoping to get out next week for a little Indian Summer fishing early next week. Any reports on the bluegill, pike or bass fishing as of late? The water temp should have dropped a little with the cooler nights. Feel free to message me if you prefer.

Thanks, Mac

@thomaslimbach:

Good advice from GL Captain. I have also had some success with the Luhr-Jensen J-Plug, sometimes with a small flasher, sometimes with a small dodger, sometimes on its own. If with a dodger or flasher I usually put the spoon or J-plug about 3' behind. 

I use downriggers but you can also use a bottom bouncer with 3-way swivel.  

I find slower speeds to be better, 1.1-1.3 MPH which is much slower than Lake Michigan trolling. But sometimes a little faster is the ticket.

I, and also the guide boats, often troll using cowbells with a sutton spoon on the end. Here's a link to Walkers Guide Service with a fishing report that mentions trout technique. It's a bit of an old report, but might be helpful. http://www.greenlakefishing.com/greenlakefishing/

They've been found in 100ish to 120+ FOW as far as I can tell. But when you mark em on the finder you'll have a better depth idea.

Here's an example of a cowbell/flasher setup (second two images). Put a spoon on the end (first image) and you're all set. Assuming you have downriggers.

Lastly, you can also jig for them if you don't want to troll.

Good luck!

Ive never tried lakers on big green. Ive fished for them for years on michigan. Can anyone tell me if you troll them do you use spoons, small husky jerks, or what? Thanks in advance and tight lines!
