Started off in front of the bluffs got two eaters 15 1/2 -17" early on leeches, moon glow hooks, went across to the cove picked up a sauger 14", then back across and bottom bounce my way back down river picked up two more eaters, should of spent the morning bouncing with spinners (Gold )and a crawler but at least I got five to show for the effort, plus a mix of species caught, trip planned again in the early morning. wink.gif

Sounds like you did ok out there walli1. We tried around some of the areas you did and caught a sheepster and one good sized channel cat. We headed up river and found some sunfish, a 15 inch sauger and another eater channel cat. I am still suprised I am not catching more sheephead out there. I did see quite a few sheepsters caught by another boater on minnows though. I used mainly crawlers, but we did get one channel on a leech. Water temp was 73 when we started and 74 when we left. The boat traffic did not get heavy until around 11 am.

I went back to bottom bouncers seems that its the best way yet to put fish in the boat when the bite is slow, you can cover more water a get the bait infront of hungry fish.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?
