I took my oldest son (just turned 12) out yesterday for a little father son shore fishing outing (My boats in the shop right now frown.gif). We fished for a couple of hours from the east shore of Madison and got into some hungry largemouths. It was a lot of fun. My son caught his two biggest bass yet a 13 and 14 incher respectfully within minutes of each other so he was smiling! They were enjoying jumbo leaches under a bobber. We just pitched into the holes in the weeds and waited. The bass seemed to be really active last night. Lots of them rolling and jumping in the weeds. It was a really nice time.

I was just out on Madison yesterday , too. Were you fishing by buckmeisters(?) bridge? A friend of mine, and I took out our little 12 ft aluminum boats, and drifted around together trying to catch some sunnies. His son caught the only one.-Later!

Dustin we were by the culvert. We were the only ones there I'm assuming because of how weedy it was. Made the evening that much more enjoyable!

Piker.....How did the garbage look around the culvert now? Better, I hope. It is nice to have evenings like that with your kids-memories forever. A bonus also to have the bass cooperate. Hope you get your boat back soon to get on the outside edge of those weeds. Good luck fishing this summer.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception

      A co-worker reported they had some the best fishing ever on V last weekend.  Trolling 6-8 feet in the morning with HJ10’s.  Where the water temps were in the mid/low 50’s

      Those campsites are right across the water from us. Seem pretty well protected and I haven't heard of challenging over there. Holiday weekends they fill up very fast

      My son camped on Hinsdale with his aluminum runabout. Nice site but walking across the hull parked on uneven ground he separated a couple of the rivets.

      Thanks "Skunked Again!" I searched old posts and it sounds like my fiberglass boat might not be the best rig for Hinsdale. Still, would appreciate more advice/input.

      I don't know about either of them, but welcome to the forum.

      I destroyed my main propeller saving a neighbors dock section from ramming my other neighbor's dock. Definitely watch out for each other out there.   Raven77 - on the plus side of the high water, the floating swim platform that you sold me the other year was able to just float off of the rocks that I had beached it on. No need to do any heavy lifting this season! I'm glad that I tied it to a tree as usual.
