I WOULD GUESS THERE FISH IN MUCH OF THE WATER COLUMN JUST LAST SUNDAY I WAS ON TETONKA AND THERE WAS A FEW LARGE BEDS OF NICE GILLS. AND SEEN A FEW CAUGHT DEEPER 15FT.

Last week walleye fishing I was catching them every now and then(sunfish). Plus pretty much every walleye I cleaned last week had sunfish in there stomachs. When bass fishing or anything shallow they were within 5ft. of shore spawning. So from 6" to 14' you should be in business.

For the better quality fish, I would do some searching over the main basin of any area lake and focus on the top 5% of the water column.

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
