2 long time friends, laughing, joking around and sharing the day together catching there favorite specie, with a few bonus fish. Our fish were still weed related and will continue for another week or so.

Awesome job Guys, lost count after 80. Several Walleye and Bass released as these guys wanted Gills only and Gills they caught, a few 9's in the mix. A few for the frying pan and yes, I can hear the oil popping on Lake Crisco even now. 

All fish were hard hitting, no mistake. The water temps are starting to drop and it will only be a couple short weeks before the early fall bite is hot and heavy for several other specie.

 As always, stay positive, think clearly, do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.                                                           

God Bless

Response to fishnrox303 question on slip bobber fishing.  Just read the reports on here for the depths and locations you want to be at and you will prolly do well.  Won't matter much on which lake you go to.  Great time of year to be fishing in the north woods.

Fantastic clients, Mom, Dad and Son. Awesome job you guys, I can still hear the oil popping on Lake Crisco.

This Shore Lunch was special as these lifetime Walleye hunters wanted a combo trip with a "Gill" Shore Lunch. All fish in the weeds today, live bait for both specie and dozens of fish came aboard and released and a few kept for the Fry.

Yum, Yum was the lunch time conversation. The bite is still going hot and heavy, all strikes are hard hitting and solid.

Was out this morning with Greg again. The daytime bite is getting much better and a lot more keepers each day. The weather was great and the wind really picked up after 11 AM with us getting 5 nice keepers and 3 slot in 4 hours all on jig and crawlers. Thanks Greg.

Warm days, some cool nights, a few storms here and there…sort of typical mid-August.  Haven’t seen nights cold enough to turn a few sugar maples, but it will be here soon.

Largemouth Bass:  Very Good-Good – Lots of action relating to cabbage flats of 8-12’.  Wacky worming, Dirty Jigs w/ Yum Chunk or Jackall Chunk Craws for trailers.  Sweet Beavers Carolina rigged.  Top-water action still very good for anglers fishing evenings when water temps rising!   Lunker Hunt Frogs, Savage Cicadas and Whopper Ploppers bring in best reports.

Smallmouth Bass:  Very Good-Good – Ned rigging TRD’s or TRD Craws been tough to beat.  Drop-shotting 3” Gulp Minnows and 3” Clone Fry’s good over deeper gravel humps where Ned rigs may be too light.  Coontail edges, 3” Tube jigs best.

Bluegill:  Very Good-Good – Not hard to fish once located.  Larger Gills suspending off weed beds in 14-20’.  Cast 1” twisters as you would for Crappies to locate schools.   Once found, stick to small plastics or small minnows or leeches.  Nicer Gill in the 7 ½ to 8 ½” + category, good eaters!

Northern Pike:  Good – Covering weed flats of 6-10’ using spinner baits, swim baits and chatter baits producing good action from fish of 22-27”, a few cracking low 30” range reported.

Yellow Perch:  Good – Best over sandgrass flats of 14-22’ using Lindy style rigs or slip-floats to work ½ crawlers.  On Flowages, relating to weed, crawlers best.

Crappie:   Fair-Good – Some action along deep coontail edges on medium fatheads.

Musky:   Fair-Good – Big bladed spinner baits and bucktails over weed flats, fish in or right on edges (probably keying on Gills where Cisco not available)

Walleye:   Fair-Good – On days with clouds and wind, some anglers finding Walleyes moving into 8-14’ weeds to feed.   Crawlers and leeches best.  Once sun is out, bite dies, start searching deeper rock humps.

Nothing drastic as of yet for August.  Some weeds are dying back, but surface temps remain stable for now, most in low-mid 70’s as afternoons in upper 70’s to low 80’s warming up water after overnight cooling off.

Was out to night with my buddy Greg on gravel bars in 22 fow. We had more than 25 bobbers go down, it was great weather for night fishing. Only 2 slot fish, 6 keepers, 12 shorts and a few got off. All fish came on slip bobbers and a leech.   Thanks Greg now that was fun.

Ned and Brad from Wisconsin Rapids were with me last night for an evening outing. Nice walleyes bit pretty much throughout until an hour after dark. We just fished 2 gravel spots and had lots of action on slip bobbers with leeches. We had 5 keepers with lots fish released and 8 slots. We also caught more shorts than usual which is nice to see.

Went out this morning for a couple of hours. Action was fast and fish were very aggressive. 5 walleyes in the slot and one dandy 28 incher. 2 keepers for lunch and a giant largemouth. Deep weedline edge with jig and plastic. Largemouth was 23.5 inches but not sure on the weight! Tight lines!
