Finished up my annual stay on LLB. Thanks again to all who provided tips. Managed to meet one of our resident Lake Link members on the water who graciously shared some of his expertise. 

Fishing was decent during our time on the water. My 10 year old managed to boat close to 20 catfish during our stay, by far the most we've caught when we stay on the lake. They were caught on a variety of lures -jig/minnow, swim bait, Mepps #5. Amazing how active these fish are. They absolutely slam the bait.

Walleyes seem to be getting bigger. Not necessarily longer, but chunkier. Drifting jigs and minnows across weeds was the ticket for these light biters.

Not sure how yellow bass are not more popular. I'm guessing because they're almost all identical in size? They are big time fighters and delicious to boot! Love catching one and seeing three or four chasing it back to the boat trying to get the bait. One of the more underrated fish, IMO.

Other fish caught in our group - hand full of smallies/LMB, bluegills/rock bass (by the dam), couple good sized crappies, one 15 inch white bass, a gar, couple small northern and a ~30 inch muskie. 

This lake is a lot of fun because you never know what you're going to get. You can be fishing a jig/minnow and get any of the fish mentioned above. Most of the areas we fished are documented in this thread. There are a handful of areas with weeds. If you find the weeds, just stay as close to them as possible and you'll eventually get some fish. 

Might try to get out again in the fall - my 10 yr old wants a muskie!

Water temps between 75-78 today. Noticeably cooler water today than the last week or so when it was over 79 all over the lake.

Thanks to all who provided info especially EZ. Tried the area by the camp and although we didn’t crush them we got a handful of yellow bass, a couple walleye, catfish, a monster white bass and even a gar. All caught on either a small jig and minnow or minnow/crawler under a bobber.

We were rigged with small jig and fathead, or split shot and hook with fathead, just hanging over the pontoon rails, or worked very slowly. Many short hits besides the ones we hooked up, plus bonus walleye.

I located the school of yellow bass, but they wouldn't bite much.  They were about twenty feet deep.  My son had one follow his worm up to the surface, but no bite.  I caught one near the bottom on a little jig tipped with a worm.  I was pretty excited about it.  I'd never caught a yellow bass before.

Didn't measure any yesterday, but took a couple buddies out last week who wanted to keep some, so we did measure a few to get an idea of size. I agree with the 8 to 9 inch average, but we did have some that were in the 10 to 11 range. My buddies commented that they were surprised on the decent size. 

I've never kept any to eat, but have been told that they taste  more like gills than white bass.
