We are going to be at McQuoids on the 2nd and 3rd of July. I am looking for places to look for Small Mouth and Muskie. Thanx!

My advice would be to get in touch with Terry McQuoid, let him know that you saw his ad on this site and ask him to point you in the right direction.

I have stayed there in the past and he has always been very helpful......especially considering that he is a guide and employs other guides. They are giving up info that they could demand to be paid for.

I have noticed that he's pretty busy, so give him some advanced warning that you'd like to talk with him.

Good luck and report back how you did.

Here's my spot's - with some success. Grassy island, Spider island, Upper Twin, Izaty's reef,Isle bay. I've heard cove bay in the reeds, but never proved it. Make sure you work the last bouy off Upper Twin. Also give Hawkbill a try. Let us know how you do- smallie addicts are wondering.

I can tell you that a smallmouth was caught and RELEASED by spirit Island that was photographed. It was 7# 15oz. 1 oz. shy of the state record. It should still be swimming nearby.
Thanks
Rick

When you get there be sure to talk with Terry McQuoid. He is well known for his smallmouth knowledge on Mille Lacsw. Please tell him I said hello.

Fish-on

Fished muskies in Cove bay, Waukon bay and Vineland yesterday. Saw 9 muskies and caught a 38-inch northern (and a 23-inch walleye on a Jake). There are fewer big muskies in the weeds than usual. Everything we saw was under 40 with one possible exception. I have been hearing reports that there are more muskies out in the main lake, must be a forage thing.

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.

      Hows the action. Got out a couple times and it was fun.

      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them 
    • eyeguy 54
      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.

      There were a PILE of big fish caught out there today, but yeah, that wind was still pretty tough despite the warmer temps.  My boy caught a 28 1/2 and a 29!  He bested his best on the same day!

      Awesome! Sounds like fun. Staying on a lake I’ve fished a fair amount last few years and struggling. Can’t get nothing to go. Fished from 4-16 ft. Been reading some articles to use electronics to mark fish in deep water (20-30fow) so maybe I’ll give that a try tomorrow. Tried trolling for pike to and again nothing. Also tried bass fishing and yep your right nothing. Man I’m really struggling but I’ve never fished this late in the season so that doesn’t help. But I don’t think I’m the only one struggling quite a few anglers out and didn’t see any fish caught.

      Hi my name is Royce. I was a live bait addict for many years and just could not kick the habit. Every day I would have to stop at the bait store to get my fix and every night I would come home with minnow and wax worm juice all over my fingers and a lot of fish to eat and let a lot go that were YUUUUGGGGGGGe 😝😜🙃

      I was on the windy side of a small lake for the action. hit 3 spots calmer and the 4th paid off. my money spot was a snooze. LOL anchored in 10 to 12 feet and bobbered down 4 feet above the weeds.  1 inch gulp alive minnows in emerald and chartreuse on a 4mm widowmaker ice jig again. the bigger ones were biting crazy light. any small change in bobber action and set the hook for the nicer fish. Smaller ones smacked it. gills and crappies acting the same and in the same area give or take a few feet. Pinched off a weight from a different bobber and put on the comal ( I am really liking these). Just the yellow stayed above the water and easy to see the nibble. Had a boat next to me with round bobbers and they struggled bigtime.
