Was up the week of July 19-25th.  Hot and humid the first day with water temps above 76.  Theme for the week was bass hit everything.  Threw top waters, bucktails, phantoms, and spinners.  Pike were hitting on a black and red bucktail with a gold blade over the cabbage beds. More bass than pike.  Only saw one Musky roll on a top water.

Cold front and rain came in, only dropped water temps to 75-76.  Sunday morning had to be 50 with a north winds.  Bass were still hot, did not even see a follower for the rest of the week.

Caught LMB under docks, in the bull rushes and in cabbage with yum dingers...color did not matter.

Was able to get a 25" walleye to hit a phantom 5 minutes before sunrise while casting for musky. Picked up one small musky later in the week when jigging for walleye when the temps started to climb to the 80s

Out on the water for the weekend. Saturday water temps started at 58 degrees and ended the day at 62. I had to search for the active fish. Found the crappies in the 1st break that had cabbage. The wind switch 180 degress around 3pm and practically shut the fish down. I would suspect that if we could get 3 days of stable weather with a little sunshine the fish will put the feed bags on.

Chilton the cold doesn't scare me. I've had some of my best crappie and perch day up there in -20. And from what I've read the 2 different trucks that went through up there. Where both in current narrow areas which is common sense to stay away from with a truck.

Not quite sure how to decipher all of Chiltonheads post, but last weekend we had about 15" of ice in the holes we fished from.  Saw about 8-10 trucks on the lake.  Travel was perfect for atv/snowmobile.  With the brutal cold the fish didn't seem to active but neither was I.  We fished from around 3 until 6 last Saturday with 1 pike on the lone flag we got.

Coming up tomorrow how are the conditions after the recent snow? Is the ice ok for truck travel?

I totally agree with Clintonhead and Bullet-man. I've seen way too much overharvesting of these big females recently.
