oneeye,

You're not alone but things should change soon. For me, it's been quite a bit of "here and there" lately but by Monday I should know more. smirk.gif

The crappie fishing is still decent but the schools aren't as tight as they have been. The 'eye fishing came to a complete stop for me yesterday. Never saw one come in the boat. Hopefully today will be better.

Water temps from last Sunday to today on Washington have dropped ten degrees. Got skunked today, after having some luck last Sunday.

Nice to put a stake in the recreation traffic so I can get back off the river and back on some of the area lakes...I would imagine we have some very good days in the next couple of weeks through fall.....

Definitely some good days ahead. The fish had changed from yesterday to today as far as grouping and aggression. The big boom is right around the corner. As for water temperature, yes, big swings there too. Mid to low 60's is what I have seen the last few days.

Thanks T.O., I wont be able to get out until early next week, hopefully by then their patterns changed. I have been layed up do to a couple surgeries this spring and summer, the few times I did get out, in between surgeries I had good luck. I think I am healthy enough to spend a couple evenings/ early nights on the waters now, in search of some action, I was thinking of hitting, either lura, or tetonka, or something in that area. Any recent reports good or bad on these spots?

Solid bite on Tetonka. Check my report titled "Forcing the Issue" if you haven't already.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
