We have had good success fishing bluegills this week. The hot weather has really turned them on as well as an occasional perch and crappie. Bass have been active as well with several 14" to 18" fish caught on spinnerbaits and wacky worms over the red and green cabbage. Pike are plentiful but are running small, nothing over 20".

We kept a few pan fish for a fish fry. The bass and pike were CPR

Pioneer is in rough shape.  They pulled the boat landing dock out of the water.  Water looks to be a foot above normal.  The people on North and South Twin opened their dam and don't care what happens downstream--the creek flows from Little Twin to Pioneer.  People's basements are flooded, docks are under water, etc.  There is a meeting tomorrow at Maple View to see if they can do anything.

Hi Paul

Thank you for the update.  We have plans to be next to you in mid August with the Gossens.  Hope to see you.  Glad to hear the lake is going down.  That much water has to create a mess for everyone connected to the lake.  How are you doing?

Larry

Can anyone provide a water level report?  I understand the lake is very high after recent rains.

Opened the cabin on Friday.  Fished a couple hours Saturday afternoon 5-7 pm.  Being able to troll has made a big difference.  Trolled around 2/3 of the lake, near the outer edge of the weeds.  Most weeds are up to 18" below the surface, so caught a fair number of weeds. Started with a perch pattern original Rapala size 9 or 11.  Dove too deep, so switched to a Yozuri crystal minnow, 3 1/2" size--also kept the rod tip elevated to avoid the weeds.  Did much better. Caught three hammer handles, a decent crappie and, surprise surprise, 2 walleyes.  Both walleyes were chubby.  One was just under 14", the other about 11".   In the 50 some years I have fished Pioneer I had caught exactly one walleye before yesterday.  Most people will say there aren't enough walleyes in the lake to target them.  Maybe that is changing.  Probably 10 other boats out. When I launched, one boat coming in said they were blanked on Muskies but caught some nice crappies. Lake is up about 6" above normal.

Johnny O  post your phone # and I will call you.  I have fished Pioneer since I was born (50 yrs ago) and can give you spots and lures.
