Was there tonight. Weedy everywhere. Only a few other people fishing, all from shore. Guy I was with used his trolling motor to move around. All we caught was weeds. How is one supposed to fish that lake when the weeds are up?

i guess it depends what your targeting, was there a inside weed line close to the bank? if your fishing for bass im sure the majority of the lake is in post spawn mode, so fishing for them may be tough, how was the water color?

Water seemed to be cloudier than normal. Maybe recent rains have washed field residue and "murked it up". Did notice a soybean field planted 5'from shore. Weeds are in full bloom along with the biting flies near the hog barns.

How about targeting walleyes. Any suggestions on technique?

Find differences in bottom comp. They will be holes in the weeds. Slip bobber, pitch a weedless jig If you ain't gettin weeds on your lure, you probably won't catch fish.

      I fished the river on Saturday and saw at least a dozen different full sized trucks going in and out of the bays and all over the Arrowhead Flats. Since then an F150 and several ATV's have gone through. Just like Big Country predicted, another one today. Under the Oliver Bridge an old timer on a 6 wheeler spent 30 minutes in the water before a passerby noticed him holding onto the ice. Please be safe, tell your friends, tell anyone who talks fishing. Any ice right now is sketchy

      A buddy of mine was out fishing last night and some guy drilled a big spear hole in the ice and never marked it or out the ice back in the hole. My buddy told me the ice block wasn't even by the spear hole he almost fell in! Reminder to always mark your spear hole and keep a careful eye out to make sure you don't step in one!
