After reading your post on Sakatah and Tetonka it sounds as if we had just about the same kind of day planned. Started out the day rigging some steep breaks focusing on the high edge and then slipped out to some deeper water. Nothing. Went to some wind swept points and again nothing. Jigs, cranks, lindys, spinners---nothing. So off to some shorelines that were being pounded by the NW winds to throw some cranks. Started shallow (right on the bank) and moved out to around 6-10 ft experimenting with every crank in the box. Again nothing. We were blanked today on the eyes but probably boated 20-25 LM bass with the biggest pushing 20". We really fished in areas today that we should have "accidentally" put an eye in the boat but I guess that's the way it goes. This has kind of summed up my whole year on this lake. Can't quite figure it out--at least not yet. The bass are always fun and I got to spend a day on the water with a good friend so all is well. Water temp was 61 and dropping fast.

The mystery continues but I will figure it out prior to ice-up one way or the other. smirk.gif

There is not much for numbers right now, but the size is sure there when you find them.

These drops in water temperature should spark their interest. I'll be out chasing 'eyes tomorrow all day. Look for a report to follow.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.
