I have done the drive also many times only to turn around and go home eh! Hope your next trip is better tight lines to all that travel from a distance.

Drove up from south two hours to fish high winds and Stockbridge Friday . Dozen goats drifting. Too rough to do anything but that. No perch fishing- no way two anchors gonna stop boat from moving and certainly not trolling in white caps. Only rig in lot all day, including sitting out rain storm late morning. Never seen fishing like this. Must only bite on calm, sunny days when bugs driving one crazy. Maybe that was yesterday, eh. Sure wasn't Friday in big winds from south.
I was just north of Pipe on the east side of the lake when I must have hooked into a sturgeon. It spooled my line and took my board.
If you happen to find a yellow Offshore left side board with a tattle flag, I'd be very appreciative of it's return! If you find it and message me, I'm willing to drive where I need to pick it back up.

I have fished the west side Co Boat launch and Jefferson park area the past week. Fishing mostly reefs and structure with jigs, deadstick, slip bobbers baited with crawlers. Can hardly catch a sheep head. Trolled river channel by jefferson and got some small wallys and big sheepers and smallmouth. Co Boat launch off A switched to bay fishing the deep weeds(7') as last resort and both times ended up with a few fish. One time we caught 3 nice perch and a BG and the other time we caught 2 pike, 1 walleye and 2 more nice perch. Of course mix a few sheepers in there and it was not bad. There were tons of bait fish in the weeds of variety of sizes. I am thinking that pattern could be repeated anywhere there are deep weeds. Can someone please PM me a general pattern for getting on perch? Good luck!
how green and slimy is the water on west side out of blackwolf area?
perch were biting ever where yesterday all day I was in 15ft east side and 15 ft west side both caught fish small slab rap purple with minnow head seemed the best
Is the algae super bad still at High Cliff?
How is it by Jerfferson?
Looking to put the boat in but don't feel like dealing with the algae.
