Hello
I am bringing some family members up labor day weekend and was wondering how the bite has been on these lakes. We have done well on Bowstring earlier in the summer but I have never fished it this late in the year. Am I better off shallow like I was over memorial day or on the deeper humps like I fished over July 4th? We are staying on Sand this time since we heard there are some sunfish in this lake. Any word on them?? thanks in advance

havent heard much about the sunnies in sand I know the craps are doing ok and the walleyes are doing pretty fair. bowstring so far the walleyes have still been deep but that could all change.

Thanks for the info Jason, my father in law doesn't get to do much fishing so I really hope I can get him onto some fish. Are there any panfish lakes that are close to bowstring that would be worth trying?

I tried Rush Island and although we did not hit the panfish, I was pleasantly suprised to catch a couple of 20" walleyes tossing crankbaits for bass in the middle of the day. I did not get the chance to fish walleyes in the evening due to the weather. How is this lake for walleyes and would it be worth a try on my next trip next summer??

Can you say slooooww. That is what we found on bowstring this weekend. The rain kept us indoors much of sunday, but it is nice to see water levels rising. We tried several other lakes in the area with similar results. A few small northerns, and some crappies, but the eyes were elusive. Tried deeper in bowstring and had a few very weak bites and couldn't connect. Probably eyes that were a bit sluggish. Always good to be out on the lake though.

WE hit Bowstring this weekend and didn't get much action for the walleye. We did however get crappie action on the old fish cribs. The bite was not agressive however. we were using very sensitive floats and often there would be weaght there when you tried to move them. Or give them a jiggle once in awhile and then they would go down.
Got some nice ones.

Crappie it's not just a fish it's a attitude!

We did not do very good on bowstring for walleyes this past weekend also. You could see them all over on the locator but we could only manage a couple
