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.

    •     Hitler won the Holocaust, too..
    •   You need to stop eating those funny mushrooms before wondering around in the woods like that. You could get lost! Lol
    • No, not morels (at least not here), but I saw two different species of mushrooms on a little walk through a local woods: the "orange peel fungus" (aleuria aurantia) and one little brown mushroom that I couldn't identify.  The season isn't that far away!! 
    •   First of all, don't you know that CNN is fake news?    Second, if everyone took that advice there would be more Atheists than Christians.                -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------            
    •   How about the plan that has proven effective in Portugal that I've told you about several times now? Are you just going to keep ignoring it and continue to ask silly questions?
    • Weather around the state has and will continue its fickle behavior as we close out an exceptionally warm week and move toward a significantly cooler weekend. Rain and snow are predicted across the state, with temperatures expected to fall rapidly Friday into Saturday, leading many to wonder if any of this precipitation will stick around long enough to revitalize the snowmobile and ski trails. Currently snowmobile trails remain open in a few northern counties, but conditions are very poor with bear spots and some standing water according to the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Ski trails have similar conditions where they remain open.Eagles are congregating along the Mississippi River just in time for Bald Eagle Appreciation Days at Prairie du Chien this weekend.Photo Credit: Donna HigginsThe warm front has also strongly effected ice-cover on state water bodies and anglers are also eagerly waiting to see what the weekend's cold front will provide. The ice on southern lakes is deteriorating fast and is unsafe to fish. Even in the Northwoods some waters are breaking up and where the ice is still thick there is plenty of water on it, and areas of open water have started to show up along shorelines and in marshes and especially around beaver lodges. As a result, many anglers have taken advantage of warm temperatures for open water fishing. This past weekend 100 plus boats were fishing the Fox River from the 172 Bridge to the dam at Voyageur Park. Anglers in boats have been having mixed results catching coho salmon and brown and rainbow trout in the Milwaukee Harbor and in Oak Creek. Anglers were open water fishing the Rock River for walleye and sauger, where the bite was on at the Indianford Dam. Sauger and walleye were biting on Lake Wisconsin. Warm temperatures and rain will have the Wisconsin River back above flood stage this weekend. .
    •   My two cents... if you use vinyl you will never have to replace it again. When is the water ever going to hit it and STAY moist? That is what carpet does, vinyl will allow the water to roll right off.
