Late report.  Fished here yesterday morning, about 7 am until noon.  Caught a mixed bag of bluegills (8), perch (1), walleye (1), and smallmouth (2).  Never caught a smallie out there before.  I knew they were present, but I never got one out there until yesterday. I threw two of the bluegills back that were over 9 inches and kept half dozen 8-8.5 inches.  the one perch was 10 inches long, walleye 15 inches and the two smallies were 17 and 13 inches long, both released.  Had my best luck just drifting over sparse weeds in 8-10 fow.

Used to be during this time of year (late July and August) on Mendota, if you spotted a group of seagulls flying and hovering above the water and you went over there and saw a bunch of fish surfacing, it was white bass rounding up and  trapping bait fish by the surface. The gulls would be there to scavenge any leftovers. So all you had to do was throw a jig with a white or Chartruese twister tail in there to catch a bunch before they moved on. Same thing happens on Lake Pepin. On the other hand, if it's just single fish surfacing, could still be a white bass, but could be a carp or sucker as well (that's what I usually noticed on Petenwell this time of year).

If you see surface activity there's a good chance they're white bass chasing minnows, which are probably feeding on or near the surface.  Throw a small jerkbait towards them and if they're white bass they'll hit it.

I've been hit or miss on the bluegill the last couple of weeks.  Usually 7-10 feet of water, dropping a worm about 4 to 8 feet down.  A lot of big gills.

Question, as it gets near dusk, some fish starts jumping for surface bugs.  About the time they surface is when I hit the really big gills.  Doesn't matter what part of the lake I'm on, they are there.  Any ideas what they are?  I thought they were yellow or white bass but I got a good look at a couple and that didn't seem right.  

If nothing else, I was going to take out a fly rod and see if I could catch one.

No kidding...where did that storm come from?  Nothing in the forecast.  It just got really dark and opened up for a while and then stopped like nothing had happened.

Fished this morning until I got chased off the lake by a storm. It was super windy out there! Only method I had any success with was fishing straight down on the side of the lake the wind was coming from. Caught about a dozen bluegills, one perch and one small walleye. Threw back the bigger gills, kept the smaller ones, 5 of them. This one was released after a picture.

Made it out on the lake today. Lots of floating weeds everywhere so it made it tough to troll so I went for panfish instead and ended up with a couple gills and 1 perch and 1 crappie. The sun was a scorcher today and made it a tough bite. All fish caught on small jigs and redworms
