if you could pick 1 week of the year in June, July or August to fish what would it be?? Number 1 target smallies, then walleyes, then pike/muskie. Take in consideration that its the only week you can fish and coming from a long way..Thanks

I would pick the first or second week in August for walleyes and smallmouth.

I dunno. Seems the smallies exploded at different times this year vs. last year.

I second Cliff's motion. There will always be exceptions, but early August is almost a sure bet for both walleye and smallies.

It would be tough to wait that long to come up!

We only fish Elephant Lake near Orr these days because we know it like the back of our hand. On that lake, as others, one never knows when one species or another will turn on. Given many years casting and trolling that lake during different months, if I had only one week and wanted eyes, I would go the last week of May or First week of June, whichever was mostly dark of the moon. At that time crappie fishing can also be outstanding. We usually caught larger smallies during the summer months casting from dusk to midnight, but this year we caught many 2-3 pound smallies the second week in May. Northerns may hit any time but the larger ones are usually caught in July and August.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.

      Here's my new boat.  Saw probably 30 Verados in the past 3 days on the east and and west ends.

      We had two fishing tournaments this weekend. Walleyes on Saturday and bass on Sunday. I met the bass winners today and talked to them about their walleye win Saturday. That’s right, they won both!  On Saturday, they entered the walleye tournament but just because they were on the lake to pre-fish for bass. They fished with stick baits in shallow water, looking for bass beds. As shallow as 4’. And dang if they didn’t keep catching walleyes. Big ones, including 2 over 26”. 21 lbs. in all. Apparently, they’re pretty good at finding bass, too. Big $ weekend for them!

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.
