Griggs, I fished 2 tournaments this weekend.. Saturday on Big Marine, did well. Fished pretty deep with drop shots, probably caught 30-40 fish, weighed 12.77lbs if I remember.. Fun day.. Yesterday I fished Rush lake, prefished friday and kicked the snot out of em.. Sunday was a different story, couldn't buy a bite. Managed my limit, but werent big, 8.35 lbs..I think that pressure system shut them down.. and dang was it HOT. Thats my weekend report.

I went out and tried some bass fishing in the dark both mornings this weekend. Was fishing at 4am and did very well. used topewater for the most part but also used a black spinnerbait and caught a few. Bigger fish bit best before there was light in the sky then the smaller fish mixed in. Great time though.

I went out on Millacs and got to witness the may fly hatch first hand. bugs 1" thick around the Nav lights and troubles getting back in to the marina because it looked like we were in a blizzard. mad

Muskys were a no show for us though.

Hellabass, Nice fish!! I've got a club tourney on Tonka in a couple of weeks, are the fish in the milfoil or what was working for you?

Hit Chisago on Saturday to show my dad a good time and the bite was nearly non-existent. We managed a few, but the algae bloom and weather seemed to shut them down. It was a beautiful day and the boat ran good. That is all I can ask for I guess.

Went out saturday and the darndest thing happened. I caught 3 fish but lost 8! I seen all the fish that I lost. the only thing I could make off it was that they were biting light and not getting the hook in there mouths. most of the bigger fish came throwing a senko right up against midlake reeds, smallest fish came throwing senkos and jigs under and around docks.

Fished Friday afternoon 1:30 to 3:30. No little guys, no big gals; 7 fish between 16"-18". The historic fish spots all held fish, went 4 out of 5 casts with a fish (giggled like a schoolgirl). Tried out a new worm hook with lead on the shank, me likey. A crack of thunder chased me off the lake, could have hung around longer, but I had my best day so far this summer.

Went out saturday and sunday and did decent both days. I managed 11 Bass saturday, all of which went 17-18". I picked up 13 Bass sunday with most of the fish measuring 17-18" with a couple 19"ers. The biggest fish of the day was a 20.5" piggie.

I had a club tournament at Coon Lake on Saturday. I prefished for the tournament one week prior (the 20th) and had around 18-19lbs. On Saturday I found the fish had stayed in the same areas and caught 18lbs 6oz for the day. My personal best 5 fish tournament limit yet! All Terrain Jigs, Gander Mountain Brand Beavers, and Spro frogs were the ticket all in less than 4ft of water.

On Sunday I got out to Carls (McMahon?) lake in the south metro and caught some fish up shallow around milfoil and wood. Greenest, most pea soup looking water I've ever fished!

Nice bag on Coon. I fished Carls about ten days ago, what an algae bloomed slimehole. Plus, I was getting a surface water temp of 86 degrees! Note to self: Only fish this lake in the fall.

Deitz: yup, I got first

Duffman: I'd agree. Its been good to me in the spring and through June, but just caught a bunch of smaller 13-15inch fish yesterday.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
