Fished on the east side this weekend got a 26 inch walleye (could not believe it myself) and some smaller ones. Off the weed point straight out from the public launch on the east side. Also caught my fair shair of drum and three bass(to my suprise). Was in about 12 ft of water. Using a jig and night crawler. So there are big walleyes in the lake just finding them has been the problem.

believe me there are lots of big walleyes in the rushes in the last two seasons alone i have caught and released well over 50 eyes from 5 to 10 pounds with 7 to 9ners being the most common.year 2001 the east side produced two fish that i know of over 12.myself cathing a 12 and one half oct. 15 6;30 pm. these fish don't always feed at your so called low light periods because of the water color during mid summer months.

      Good bite in the East end this weekend.  No big ones but lots of eater size walleyes coming to the boat.  Even got a bonus chewy, gave my seven year old all he could handle!

      Saturday we hit the South Shore in 30-60' for water.  Multiple hits and releases off the boards, dipseys, and downriggers but no hookups. Went something like 1 for 10 with a nice 29" walleye taken off a pink Husky Jerk and 3 oz of lead on board line.  Marked quite a few fish throughout that depth.

      The pictures were from Amazon, if you can't find it locally.   Jann's Netcraft has a lot of that stuff also. Comes in a variety of thicknesses/strengths.   Some folks use crimped sleeves especially with the thicker stuff.

      Yup!  14 will get cut, as will 20 from time to time.  I’ve run enough different fluorocarbon to get to the conclusion 20 lb is the best combination of fish ability and pike protection for the gear I use.  Anything less and the bite offs are easy.  Anything more and the stiffness kills the action too much and is hard to tie.   I’ll be looking for those leader materials you posted though.  I need something like that for a couple muskie rigs I want to experiment with.

      Vermilion is in low 70's

      A decent pike will bite through 20 pound flouro in a heatbeat.  Certtainly 14 pound like happened to me yesterday....

      Still a good bite on the rocks, just fewer humps having fish. Takes some searching to find a group. However, the fish still on the rocks are biters...and some big ones. I've been spending part of each day pulling cranks with lead core or flat lining and that is putting lots of fish in the boat also. I'm not seeing the huge schools in the mud anymore, just pods here and there but very fishable. Also catching some jigging. The water is amazingly cool still...below 70 every morning off the south shore. It has been a while since so many fish have been hanging within a few miles of the south shore. Boats are scattered over a huge area from around 28 feet and out. Sure nice not having to make long runs all the time. Fall fishing could be terrific this year with all the fish still on the south side. Forgot to mention the lack of algae blooms. Can't remember a year without major blooms by mid August. Good luck
