I had a guy with two kids out before the storm blew in. got 4 nice bass and had a few pike on, but they shuck off before getting out the net. We left early as I noticed the weather going bad,  got boat on the trail as it started to pour. The lady inspecting boats helped pull weeds off the trailer, pulled a trailer light wire.  Lighting and heavy rain on my drive home, after I got the boat in the garage, then noticed I forgot to pull the plug.  Drained 7 gallons of water in the garage, from the boat. It took three days to dry out the boat with a 56 inch fan over the boat.

 

Lately, I have been pulling panfish with my kayak. along with the floats from trees, which will go on the garage sale July 18 -20.

I'll be up next Friday.  Have a buddy who loves bass so I'm going to some of the places I fished 25 years ago to bust some.  Usually not hard to find.  Hoping to get my family on the panfish.  I'm expecting them to be in 10-12 ft of water around the weed beds, but the last couple years they have been scarce the end of July.  Just made plans to be up Labor day weekend and then the end of Sept.  Can't wait to get back on the water.

Had a family reunion on beaver lake on Saturday. Spent the morning out on the lake and caught close to 50 bass, with a few hammer handles. Most bass were just little guys, but I did hook into a 19.5 inch beast. Early morning was real slow, but once 5 minute rain storm blew through, the action really picked up. Lake really exceeded my expectations.

I'll be out on Clearwater starting Saturday-Saturday.  Looking forward to some R+R....and maybe some fishing.  Hope the bite is on.  Looks like we are going to catch some good weather.  Hoping the fish cooperate as well. See you on the water.

Was out on Clearwater last week.  Fishing was somewhat slow.  We had plenty to eat.  It was just staying patient and working.  Most everything was available just a slower bite.  Makes sense...end of July can be like that.  Here is a Pic of my daughter with a bass she got. Be back up in 5 weeks or so.

Clearwater Lake has some fantastic bass fishing.  I fished it a bunch of times about 5-6 years ago and we caught a lot of 2-3 pound bass (which were all released fully alive) so those fish have to all be bigger now.  The one negative is that the lake tends to get pressured with a lot of contests and tournaments.

The bass don't seem to know it's fall yet the last week on some of the lakes. Anyone seeing this?

Found a few in deeper weed edges, willing to eat jigs with plastic trailers.  Pike on Pulaski are eating everything, for 3 guys in the boat, caught 25 pike in 4 hours, 6 fish over 26 inches.  Even caught our first bullhead in Pulaski lake.

Got out for a few hours tonight on Clearwater lake. Beautiful night, but only one little bass. Lost a few on the hook set. Was mainly trying for walleye. Hopefully my next outing will be better, just not sure how soon it will be as my days off seem to coincide with lots of rain.

I would like to get out a few times more just as we start making ice, but on days where the ramp will not freeze and be so slick you slide into the lake loaning the boat.

After launching pull your trailer out slowly leaving just the tries barely in the water then sit there a couple minutes and let the water in  your trailer drain into the lake and not onto the ramp.Repeat after loading the boat to go home.EVERYONE launching a boat in freezing temps should do this.It works well and leaves the ramp clear of ice for the next user.Dont sit on the ramp with a wet boat and trailer draining all over it.Also keep some sand available if needed,I have never needed to use any when following the instructions I posted above but you never know what the guy before may have done.

I was thinking of the ramp at Clearwater lake, It's frozen until spring now.

      I wonder if he can find someone to help him with his houses this winter?  
    • smurfy
      I've heard cookie was in a bad accident. other then what I read I don't know a whole lot more other then it looks like he's out for the upcoming ice season.    hears to getting back at it!!!!!

      good tips guys. indeed a good idea to bring some meat along. I find myself using it less and less but good to have in the pocket. 
    • Borch
      I rarely use live bait anymore unless I'm gonna use 2 rods.  Plastics, gulp,  tied tungsten flies, jigging raps,  rippin raps, darters... the list goes on.  There has been a few times though that a minnow head on a spoon out produced anything I had.  Good thing I had a buddy who borrowed me a few. 😉

      Hey Chris what about the tip on putting your favorite concoction in a generic spray bottle to keep it secret, while you proceed to school everyone at the Catfish Get Together 😆
    • IceHawk
      Another option for those that don't have bait laying around or don't want to buy any is to buy a bottle of Berkley gulp recharge and add a little to a bait puck or plastic bag with your plastics for the day.  I myself never go on the ice without a puck with some kind of meat. Call me crazy  but  I've seen situations where it has outperformed plastics.  Fortunately for myself I have a bait fridge in the garage with euro and waxies and a insulated aeroated minnow tank with minnows all winter. A Minnie bait store so to say.😀
    • Bucketcastle
      This I will definitely try this season.  Thank you for the tip @IceHawk
    • IceHawk
      A little tip for those that want to add a little scent to your unscented  plastics naturally. Take a bait puck grab some of the plastics you want to use for the day and add couple minnows to puck or a few euro larvae or waxworms. Doesn't get any more natural than that.
