Not a bad day. About 8 hours on the water. Managed about 20 sm 1 over 20 and a large over 20 and a few northern. No eyes. Saw a lot of fish on Graf but bit was light and slow.

Fished the lake today from 2 till 5. Only set up on one of the bars, saw fish all day but it wasn't gang busters when it came to getting fish in the boat. Caught 3 smallmouth and lost another while trolling. Caught and kept one 16" walleye. Like I said, I was marking fish all day and getting occasional hits. Fish seemed to be in the 22' to 28' depths. Most came on slip bobbers. I got a few hits while casting and jigging, but most were short hits or just mouthing it. I was also out yesterday, but only managed one short walleye and missed a couple others.
thanks for the feedback and sorry for the triggering of a dispute haha, were heading up for 7 days of solid fishing, i dont eat fish so not keeping anything but want to just target some walleye but mainly small mouth and norther. will post reports while im up there. Typically every day or two.
I've caught at least a hundred this year but I fish it several times a week usually. Mostly on crawlers or leeches. This year has been a strange one (I feel like I say that every year). A lot of wind, then dead calm, a lot of fronts moving through as well.
Did great trolling spinner rigs earlier in the season in 9-12' along weed lines.
This week has been really windy. Hard to do any sort of real boat control. Hopefully next week is a bit calmer.
Thanks Kargh. Fished this lake 4 times this year. caught less than 20 walleye this year,and took home 5 eaters.

Catching walleye in 25-30' of water using slip bobbers and nightcrawlers or hyper rattles. Finding a lot of fish but the bite has been a bit slow (for me anyways).
By the way gentlemen, are there any good fishing reports to this lake .
I hired Tom once and he was a stand up guy. Even jumped in my boat at the end. Turned my graph on and started waypointing spots. I didn’t ask him to do that he just did it. Stand up dude he is
Come on, lets get serious here. In his videos, he rarely ever tells you what lake he is fishing on unless it is a huge, well known location (Flowage, Mille Lacs, etc), and he never reveals the actual spot on the lake -- even on the locator.
The only reason you know where he is fishing is if you are familiar with the lake and shoreline. That is not exactly a lot of people. Sure, those who live on the lake are likely going to recognize the locations but that is about it.
I don't know anything about any of the situations mentioned on here but I do know that A LOT of people went through, and in some cases, are still going through some pretty tough times. Maybe talk to him again.
Please keep in mind that guide services were shut down as well and I would imagine more than one guide up here was suddenly scrambling to try to figure out how to make ends meet.
Ive talked to tom more than once about middle eau claire lake and hes always had solid words for me. Hes a guide/show producer so he wasnt giveing me the farm. However it was always more than he was obligated to share. As for any problems others have had , thats between the 2 parties. Slander and libel takes the conversation into legal waters no one including lake link wants to wade into. Ive had a place in barnes for 38yrs and about 5-years ago there was a pretty ugly dust up between guides in hayward and it got real nasty and worse, public. Lets keep things accurate with no BS info. Thats all we can ask for as a angling community.
Stay safe and good fishin!
