Saturday and Sunday were both pretty good. Hair jigs, plastics & blades were all putting fish in the boat. Just keep trying different colors until you find one that works. We caught most of ours up by the dam vertical, but we also picked up some nicer sauger dragging plastics Saturday evening. There were quite a few boats down below the Y both days so I assume that area is producing as well.

Try fishing below the Y on the wisc. side. Pitching red w/white tail ring worms on the clam bed. Picked up some nice walleyes on Sat.

Where exactly are the clam beds? Above the green can at the wing dam on the Vermilliom mouth or below it?

There are several clams beds on the Wisconsin side from the rollerdam on down. Just below the Y until you get even with the green bouy on the Wisconsin side is a community spot that holds walleyes. As the river gets lower this winter you will start to see some of the beds. Just remember the locations or GPS them. The clam beds indicate the presence of current seams and breaks more than anything.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
