Good job everyone, seems like fish were a little hard to come by this time. I will have to mention that we had to leave at lunch because of "technical difficulties" and did very little fishing in the a.m., which is unfortunate, because the croix looks really great. What did every one weigh in and what were the tactics?

We launched with the help of a jump start for a dead battery, then ran it for 30 min around to get the alternator to juice it up, but it was too low. When we stopped to fish we couldnt get started again, so we used the electric to go to a resort and hook up the battery. Went out with the trollin motor while it charged and caught 4 smallmouths that were all to small on crawlers and senkos, then went back and got the battery, which was still too low to get a start. Made it back using the trolling battery on the big motor, watched the weigh in, and headed out. Just one of those days. See you all on White bear(i will have a different partner for that one)

Lunker,
I didn't realize you guys were having problems or we would have helped you guys out - at least to get the boat back without having to use your electric motor. I'm pretty sure we buzzed by you guys from a distance - I figured you were out for a pit stop since I didn't see you try to wave us down... that is a bum deal - sorry to hear about your misfortune.

Pretty tough fishing... Anyone who was out the weekend before can attest that the smallies were cooperating quite nicely.. We got out one day for prefishing - the weekend before on Saturday and didn't fish smallies for very long, but they were snapping (and that was in the afternoon sun). We tried most of the day prefishing to put a pattern together for catfish, but gave up on that by afternoon with zero catfish.

Based on how well the catfishing went for us, we decided to try to fill our smallie limit and then go for eyes. We weren't able to pull together our limit on smallies, we spent a good portion fo the day trying. All of the legal fish came in the morning for us. We weighed in 3 smallies and a pike that we caught smallie fishing.. We had a number of smallies in the 12-13.75" range and a lot of dinks. The bigger smallies we caught were deep for the most part - the biggest was in 20' of water on a plastic worm. We tried walleye for about an hour with no luck. We did pick up one on a dead stick that was short - 14.5". I've had enough of August for fishing - bring on fall!

Nasty worm!
Thanks to Grabs I got the thing squashed!


I had also been out chasing the cats a couple times and only came up with one.I never targeted them in the morning hours figuring that I could at least find a few in the afternoon.Just couldn't hook up with them.Great job Paul and WWG! We did give it a go after lunch thinking we might pick up one just to boost our weight.We were sitting there watching "boats" go by and some laddy say hey you got a bite.It was a cat but he was only on for a few minutes and I lost him.Kind of serves me right.My eyes were wide open but not looking in the right direction! smile.gif
Its always a good time fishing with everyone!

The bite was tough for us on Sunday. I think we got too hung up using one presentation that worked in pre-fishing, and should have switched. We pulled crawler harnesses all morning and most of the afternoon and picked up walleye's and some smallies on them but only one (walleye) that made the length limit. Should have jigged the deep fish we were marking off the points. Sounds like minnows would have been the ticket.

We focused on the necked down area by the Kinni most of time but then moved to the Wisconsin side accross from the launch in the afternoon. We were very suprised to pick up a bluegill on the crawler harness - (must have been following it and nibbling pieces off the back) - we stopped and jigged several gills after that - until we ran out of crawlers, they wouldn't touch a leach.
