The fishing the last week in general has been much slower than all summer, there were a couple days that the fish were downright uncooperative. Even on these days with the fishery as strong as it is on the TFF a shore lunch of walleyes and perch is obtainable. On the tougher days it is done by fishing a lot of spots, scanning some first with the electronics then deciding weather or not to fish them, looking at deeper wood in 12-16'. For 5 or 6 days after the cold front ( July 26-28 ) smallmouth were all but absent from the catch,we're catching nice sized bass again, a deadstick with a big leech catching most of them. In the deeper water I've been putting an 1/8 oz. jig on the deadstick instead of a 1/16 . Also had some good luck on humps in 8-11' with good wood structure and rocks.

Got a tip from Doc at the landing 5or 6 days ago, he had a day where he could only catch walleyes on minnows, it was a day I struggled, I've been taking minnows ever since and had three days in a row where almost all the walleyes and some of the perch and bass came on the biggest fatheads I could get. Thanks for the tip Doc!

    •     The assumption here being that since he didn't know, nobody knew.    Because obviously, nobody is smarter than him.
    •   Thanks for the reply. I was looking at the IQ pro hunter. It is a three pin, two fixed and one that is adjustable. The other would be the 5 pin micro.   i have thought about an HHA single pin but the sight makes me nervous to have in the rut. if ever I need to take a quick shot in an area I didn't expect a deer to come from
    •     Or possibly just one, since the two parties are getting more alike all the time.   Probably not a constitutional convention in the normal sense, but as we turn more and more into a police state, there is a definite possibility of a military coup.  There was a survey done in 2015, and 43 percent of Republicans surveyed said they could envision a military coup in the U.S.   http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/2015/09/10/Military-Coup-US-Surprising-Number-Americans-Might-Support-One     Republicans (43 percent) were more likely to say they can envision a scenario in which they could support a military coup than Democrats (20 percent). Perhaps that difference is related to having a Democratic president who some critics on the right see as overstepping his power.     (What's laughable is those same critics have no problem at all with a Republican president overstepping his power.)
    • Don't have to worry, there won't be a constitutional convention.    And we will have two parties or what passes for parties for a long time.
    • This Health biatchin reminds me of a dog that keeps barking and chasing a car down a street daily--then one day the car stops and the dog doesn't know what to do so it just pizza on one tire or walks away.
    • Juneau4 and Swiveldigger  each picked up a win- 200 whoopin pts. (That has to be an all time low for winning) and they didn't have the same drivers.   We had a couple contestants that had 0 pts and that may be because they just didn't get entered in time, so I'm thinking I can put it in where you can have a Mulligan for each segment. (Your low score for 1 week is thrown out each segment-Spring, summer, and playoff.  I'll try to have a winner each segment and a overall champion.   What do you guys think? I'm just thinking if more wish to join now it would possibly make it more interesting through out the year.
