Anyone done any bass fishin at Gamehaven or Willow creek? I fished those two a lot last yr with pretty good success. The Gamehaven is a hike in there but the far end was productive with topwater or med sized white twisters. I havent had time to get there this yr yet tho. Might have to try this weekend and see if any action.

I've fished Willow about a 2 dozed times this summer. It's pretty easy for me because I'm walking distance from the dock. I've never been skunked yet, but I wouldn't say I've had any outstanding outtings either. I caught a 16" and a 14" largie and several dinks a while back and that was my best outting.

The weeds are really dying back, so a guy can fish most of the shorelines again. Each time I go, I try to get further and further from the dock and I seem to do better. At this point in the season, I'd work the middle of the water column or even the bottom. I've done my best out there with a Tadpole Spin from JB Lures. I also think one could do well with an Exude Comida (at least its been working for me in other bodies of water)

Decent day at Willow

Don't overlook chester woods. There are a good amount and size of fish in there and the ever elusive Channel cat. I haven't heard or seen to many people targeting chester's channels but i have seen some hogs come out of there. ike

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.

      U-Haul in Hermatown will fill a tank and you pay for what they put in.
