I heard, and it looked like there was a tourney out there over the weekend.  But wow, was the lake riled up with the winds. I’m glad I wasn’t fishing it.

My son has been there through last week to present,. The wind has been pretty bad the last few days that has minimized his fishing areas. 

on June 9 & 10 him and two others in the boat landed 134 fish, mostly bass but did have several Walleye, Northern and one Musky. All were in 10 feet of water or less and he fished with ned rigs worms, tubes, flukes and spinner baits. Water temperatures ranged from 61 in the AM to 67 late in the day. Conditions were sunny and windy.

I will be headed their tomorrow from Oklahoma and will be fishing June 14, 15 & 16 with my son.

The full moon phase will be June 17 so I hope to have good fishing in the shallows along with Bass a wave of Bass spawning.

We have been flooded out of our lakes and most all ramps and access areas still remain closed due to high water levels.

I will write another fishing report by mid next week once I get back from my fishing trip.

Good luck @Mark Gottula

 

Thanks for the report.  It’s interesting to see as many out of staters coming to our neck of the woods to fish the smallies.  It’s  been so many years that I’ve only talked to locals heading south to try your waters, mostly to chase bass in the winter.

 

Welcome and have a good time.

I have been out there twice since the 1st of June to target smallmouth.  The first trip was good, the second not so much.  They were pre-spawn the first time and more willing to bite.  The second trip they may have already been post spawn or still spawning and they were not as willing.  The second trip was also much windier and boat control was an issue.  My folks have been out on the main lake several times since opener targeting walleyes with live bait and they have done well.  They average 25 fish/day and most of them are in the 22-27 inch range with the biggest being 27.5 inches.  I heard there was a huge bug hatch recently.  When I was last out there a week ago the water temp was 66 degrees.  If the wind is blowing, you'll need a really big boat to get out to the flats and walleye fish because there's 4 foot waves.

      On a lake near Sugar. Got on to some great sunfish they were deeper than I thought 22 feet deep suspended at 14 feet. Nonstop for 2 hours a black tungsten jig worked best I did try plastics for a bit for building up confidence but the fish showed otherwise quickly. Went back to 3 euro worms 4 was to many . Then I got a 10.5 bluegill my first one and wouldn't you know it my phone was about 2 blocks away. So I let her go not going to keep a fish out of water to get a glory picture. Oh well next time. Get out while you can the lakes were good with the warm up but who knows in a couple of weeks. That was on Friday. Drilled a few holes for an older gentleman that just wanted to fish A while I was glad to help out enjoyed chatting with him. Then went out today almost the same thing but unfortunately near a community spot and within 2 hours everyone was out there and a dog peed on my fish house was not happy threw snow on the house cleaned when i got home I left soon after very rude people unfortunately and the fishing died right away oh well.

      Well, gave Boulder a try today. Went out from the dam access. Some open water behind dam. Couple trucks drove out 😬 I did not! Foot travel, and not knowing anything about this lake made for great day to enjoy the weather. Only caught 1 perch and 1 walleye.

      Wow ... the back held up today!!   Always forget to take pics UGH ... wish i had taken some, just a great day on the ice.  met some very nice people ... and enjoyed the great weather.  brought home 7 Sunnies, 2 crappies, and a large mouth.  Missed a bunch and caught numerous border line pannies.   Great great time.

      Just got back from fishing a lake close to home fished in 9fow managed to get 5 crappies around 10 1/4" used a 1/8th oz  orange glow pinhead minnow tipped with a minnow head, also got some perch and two slimers, just picked up a ifishpro and a 36" TUCR with a okuma bait feeder reel I like the ifishpro much easier and better than usein a regular tip up, Anyone have a good recipe for pickled  fish the wife wants me to try and pickle one of the slimers I got.

      Met up with my cousin and his kids today to teach them how catch gills and crappies. The oldest who is 10 caught on quick and out fished his dad by an easy 6 to 1. He caught his personal best gill at 8.5 inches and his personal best crappie that went 12 and 1/16. He called me just now and said he wants me to take him fishing again tomorrow and next weekend. It’s easy fishing when it’s nice and the fish are on the munch.   We fished 10-12 feet of water and we used 3 mm jigs in white, gold, and metallic blue. They used wax worms and I used plastics. Spring bobbers were key for letting the kids see the bites. We kept enough fish for good fish fry for their family and grandparents. This is what it is about getting kids hooked on fishing.

      Thanks to 3 guys that were out there to help me land the fish and also take a few pics.

      A really good day out. Nice weather and the fish were active. Started out suspended btwn 4-10 ft off the bottom. Then later they were on the bottom. At dark they were back to 8ft off. Left the lake with the depth finder still showing fish.
