Greg, I just read that you were out on Bowstring Saturday with the outdoor writer from the S/C Times. I just had to ask, was it a little cold? I was out there that same day and absolutely froze. We plopped down on my favorite crappie spot and waited for the fish to come to us as we weren't going to move in that miserable weather. Wanted to go try for some perch but we decided NO WAY!! Just had to ask!! Good luck fishing!!

hey merc,

me and a couple buddies were out there as well, on the north end. We got out there around 1100 and fished till about 3 and decided the hill in squaw lake would be a better place to be! grin.gif We only caught a few little perch and we braved the elements and moved 2x. Some guys told us they had caught some decent crappies and perch earlier in the morning. How did you guys do? We were planning on fishing Round Lake for the Squaw Lake Fire Dept's perch jerk but it got cancelled till this coming weekend.

Merc,

Oh yeah, it was cold enough out there. We moved three times before finding fish. It wouldn't of been bad if it wasn't windy out.

Jerry was up to get a few photos, etc. I tried to talk him into another weekend but it was the only one that would work for him.
We went out the next morning on a different lake for a half-day and it was even colder than the day before. Jerry said "you probably wouldn't even be fishing if I wasn't here." I answered "probably not."

bmc,

We actually did pretty well on crappies considering the miserable weather. Like I said we set up and waited and it finally paid off later in the afternoon. At first it was very slow with a fish every half hour or so and you had a lot of sorting on those. Then all of a sudden they showed up and they were pretty decent fish. Only got four perch but where we were is not typically a good perch spot. The thing I like about Bowstring is there are so many spots to try that I don't have to fish in the crowds. I look where the people are and then go off and try the spots where nobody is. Normally we get something out there, not aways limits but enough to keep our interest up anyway. We stopped and talked to somebody on the north end by the two big permanent houses and they were fishing perch but everything they were getting was very small. I'm going to try it next week again during the week. Good luck fishing!!!!

      Fished for a few hours this afternoon after the rain went through and the wind died down a bit. Tried a good dozen places in between black bay and the Brule and only got around 10 fish for the effort. The water was still pretty much ice cold at a cool 65 degrees in the main lake. We checked a few off shore reefs and saw zero signs of life on the ones we checked. The places we did get a few fish was were there was a rock to mud transition near shore on points. All in all another tough outing for us and on a side note, on the way in we pulled cranks in shallow water and the May flys were thick on the surface on the wind blown side.

      I fished at the Forbes canoe access below the dam one day. And caught a 16 inch on a fly. I will give it a float and report back after the fourth

      Any tips on smallies up there? First time coming up.

      Nice report as usual, Hoey. We are fishing Wed and Thurs. Sounds like it will be ugly hot coming up. Hopefully, the fish will finally get into their summer patterns.

      Definitely hit up some trails. My kids love to hike and explore. They surprise me with their willingness to keep trekking along.

      As long as there are bugs to eat, the trout will always hit the surface. As summer progresses, there will be less and less trout to catch.

      Does it ever quit blowing?  Tough conditions this week. Fish scattered all over the place.  Bass hitting the best, panfish the least. Walleyes in the middle.  Best for us has been late afternoon on lindys and leeches. Nothing great but with the warmup coming I think things will improve. Did see a 7-8 lber caught ,  on a Daredevil of all things.  Keep the beer cold.  Go get em.  Rayguy

      Hey guys! We were up last weekend but only got to fish for a few hours. We caught a bunch of pike anywhere from mid teens in length to the low 20” range. We also caught a few bass and a few walleyes. Biggest eye was 19. We contacted all our fish from 16-20 feet. Most of our bites came on a jig and minnow. My wife and brother and law were trolling spinners but only managed pike. We did try crawlers without any success but again we were only out for a few hours. We fished on whitefish and targeted bars and a couple of wind blown underwater points. Good luck this weekend! Maybe we’ll see ya out there!
