So my roommate and I went out fishing on roberts lake last evening, and found some sunfish in the shallows on the NE corner of the lake. As we were fishing a weed-cutting boat started cutting weeds and made a pass less than 50 feet away from the boat. Needless to say the huge amount of churning water terminated our fishing spot mad. As we were motoring out of the spot the guy running the boat told us to get out of his way. At this point, slightly peeved, I explained to him that we were leaving because he scared all the fish away and we were moving to a new spot. After shutting off his machine, and swearing at us profusely for being in HIS way, I will not be giving anyone my reccomendations on using J & B weed cutting

I feel your pain, it seems that the lake is setup for water skiing and tubing now. Not only do they cut the weeds they sprayed it three times already with chemicals that say don't eat the fish for seven days. Thank god there are two resorts that only care about how the weeds are in the lake.

What time? I was out there with my daughter lastnight, didnt notice them where I was fishing. I was in an area the weeds were out 80 yards from shore, north end. Once the water warms up on Roberds, it is always overtaken by recreational boating.

Were you the boat that watched me fight the one for awhile and end up losing it at the boat? I don't even want mention what it was...I blame it on tripping over my daughters toys scattered all over my boats floor. Lol

Big walleye that got off at the surface 10 ft away from the boat where I couldn't reach it. It was well over 20 inches, my guess would be 26 or 27. My 3 year old would have been using the camera for the first time. haha.

You guys caught a lot of white bass out there? I did catch one. First for many years.

I'm not personally familiar with the weeds in the lake. Is it Milfoil? I've seen weedcutters out on a few lakes with pondweed infestation but those weeds are going out on their own as we speak. Or was it property owners clearing native vegitation? Hope not. Just curious...

Well the sad thing is that it in cutting the curly leaf they are also cutting the native vegetation during the bluegills spawn. I saw them cutting on French last night which is just plain stupid as the milfoil on that lake is very patchy. Guess the lake shore owner's really want to see it spread faster than it is. crazy

      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.

      Looks like it was a successful outing ST. My boat probably  hates me as I haven't had it out for a swim yet. MAYBE, if I'm lucky I will be able to get out over Memorial weekend. Thanks for the report.

      Most of the streams are small. Where I focus is the small streams in the back country for brook trout. Casting is hard on these streams. Some of the bigger rivers can be good. Remember the crazy rules on these streams. 
    • monstermoose78
      Wow Eyeguy you can catch them and panfish. Keep it up and let’s hear about some details.
    • monstermoose78
      The walleye bite is heating up around the area. Bass are on the beds and panfish are keeping most anglers busy. Remember the new pike regs are in place now. Good luck and let’s hear some reports and see some more photos!! Thank you to all that check my reports. I am off to get some fishing in. 
    • monstermoose78
      Hello everyone,  please check out the fishing report clubs. I believe the first few members can get in free. I hope you are all doing well fishing and hunting. I look forward to reading your reports.  If you any questions just ask. thank you, monstermoose

      Thanks for the reports guys.

      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.
