Was on round on monday night and fished in a portable approx 20ft from the open water and caught our limit. On Tuesday we caught 5 but I lost at least 6 myself.

Was out on Okabena and had some perch action today. Vex was picking up a lot of fish but the bite was pretty lite. Then went to Indian Lake towards sunset and got skunked. Lake is extremely shallow but very clear water. Went out in the middle of the lake towards the open water but couldnt find anything over 4-5' deep.

Pretty amazing that Round can still be producing. That's pretty much been going on since first ice.

I do, but had to stay close for the girls. they had school today, us bankers had the day off and was my only chance to get out and fish since the sarah gettogether. As soon as I left, a buddy called and told me I was in the wrong place. Ahhh such is life. I would love to head south, but unfortunately I am still in the same situation with my father in'law. He is too tough to quit yet. Amazing

As soon as I can, you are first on my list to call.

I see bluegills on my wall right now!!!

he must be one tough dude. You really aren't missing too much right now. If things follow the usual trends things should be picking up in a couple of weeks. I may have to do a little exploring this weekend but im not satisfied following the crowd even though we were all alone both days last weekend.

well if things work out or the end comes, I will give you a call this weekend. St James is a fun lake, never caught anything with much size there, or Mt. Lake, let me know if you are going to get in either of those tourney's

I'll definitely let you know. It's not too likely that ill be in attendance at either one but I haven't totally ruled it out as of yet. They have been getting some pretty nice perch down there and I know the walleyes have been biting in one of my favorite sight fishing late afternoon jigging spots.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
    • ANYFISH2
      wow, that is one dark walleye!

      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!

      Decided to fish Big Detroit saturday with a buddy.  Had bites but my 24 v 75#  trolling motor couldn't keep me in place so that sucked.  When we left the access to go fishing I asked the young man how late they were open till so I could make it back in time to get washed since I was going to fish a different lake on Sunday morning with the nephews.  I will be here till 5:30!  Sounds good see you before 5!  Fishing sucked, Wind BLEW, RAIN SUCKED!  So we packed up at 4:30 drove to access get there around 4:40 and they are gone!  Hot on my heels is a local fishing guide and he wasn't happy also because he had the same game plan.  Was told that there would be one at Melissa till 5 pm religiously.  Got there by 4:55 and they were gone from that lake too.  I honestly don't feel comfortable enough to do a safe job washing since I don't have a pressure washer and I really don't want to spread the Zebra Mussels from lake to lake and I know it was only a few hours 5-6 but honestly whats the point of AIS being there if they don't stay till the house they are supposed to be?  There was an easy half dozen boat trailers still at the access so it wasn't like we were the only two left at the access.

      Had some fun Saturday morning crashing through the lily pads on a small metro lake.  2 fish over 5 lbs and every fish absolutely choked the bait.  All I want to do is throw top water now, haha.  Wish I had longer arms or a partner in the boat for a decent photo.
