  1. Going to get muddy?

    I completely agree Stump. I’ll be out Thursday and Friday if the wind stays down and it doesn’t thunderstorm should be good
  2. Going to get muddy?

    I really hope it doesn’t flood. If it does, I’ll start bass fishing earlier than normal
  3. Top water striper

    If it makes a hard mud line fishing should be great. The rains will also warm the water pretty fast. I’m optimistic about it. I hope we don’t get completely blown out like in previous years though. Rain is good, just not all at once.
  4. Top water striper

    I got out Friday early morning looking for some top water action. It was misty outside and cool with little to no wind. I knew they would go top somewhere, just didn’t know where. I look looked in pockets mostly and points but mostly pockets. After about 1 1/2 hrs of searching I found them. At first they weren’t busting hard they were more like rolling on the surface. As the morning went by they became more aggressive and actually started busting. Funny thing is, I couldn’t get one to bite a top water plug. They were very smart. What I ended up doing was running free lines and casting hair jigs at them. I hooked 3 on the hair jig and landed two, also hooked 2 on the free lines and landed 1. The bite shut down pretty fast. Lasting only about 20-30 min. But I was really happy to see the conditions improving and seeing fish on top. A couple of more weeks and it may be really good, I’m excited to see what develops. Anyways, good luck out there fellas and stay safe. Btw water temp was 46

  7. Striper report

    Striper fishing has been hit or miss. I’ll go 2-3 days catching them and then go 1-2 days with nothing. Most fish have come off points lately. Stripers and whites seem to be mixed in with each other. Been catching wallies also. Trick has been covering water on points from 35-55 FOW. I’ll also check channel swings but they’ve been unproductive lately. Water temp is 40-44 degrees. Good luck out there fellas, stay safe

  10. Prairie Creek Area Today

    I’ve towed many of people back to the dock. It’s good crama !! Good job. Fish gods will repay.
  11. 1/5/18 report

    Not much of a report but I had a few hours to burn yesterday and got out. I worked the south side of the lake and found nothing. No bait and just a few whites, I marked them but didn’t fish them. I was on a striper hunt. After 2 1/2 hours of driving around I had to come in for work. I imagine the fish have to be north of the bridge. But I don’t know. I never made it that far. Water temp at point 12 was 39 and at HSB was 43.8. I’ll be back at it Tuesday with more time. I’m sure it’ll be better the next go.
  12. Polar Bear

    It really is though. I’ve caught a lot of big LMB and spots this year
  13. 10 foot net up grade.

    I’ve been using a 6 foot cast net for 6 years or so now. Finally decided to up grade to a bigger net. Watching Vinsott throw his 10 footer really put a fire under my butt to go bigger. I haven’t got the chance to use it on the lake bit have been throwing it in the yard. I’m really happy so far. The coverage is crazy big difference. I’ll still be throwing the 6ft aound buck brush, trees and what not, and will use the 10ft for open water situations. Really excited to how much faster I can get the shad I need
  14. Got out for a few hours today

    Nice walleye! Well done for a short trip.
  15. Friday fishing
