Hey guys, coming up to the chain on Saturday for about two weeks of vacation. I am coming all the way from Oklahoma and pulling the boat the whole way. (Not looking forward to that) I came up last year at the end of July and had some pretty good luck with the bass bite.

However, I was just curious as to what the water temp difference will be between June and July and also what the bass are doing now. Here in OK they have long moved into their summer patterns with the 95 degree heat moving in on a regular basis. Last year, I focused on deeper weed beds for bigger fish, and also could catch all the small fish i wanted for off of docks. Other than that, i didnt do to much else.

I am staying on Le Homme Deiu, but tried to fish the only lakes as well. If you guys can offer up any tips I would be grateful.

We've had some hot days and night this week, and water temps are up in the 70's now. The deep weed beds should be holding the bigger fish again. Water is up from last year...been a wet spring...You should be able to follow similar patterns to last season.

good luck and good fishing....

stop and say hi when you get to town

Is the water still up? Can a guy get a smaller bass boat under all of the bridges ok?

Shouldn't be a problem with any of the bridges for a small bass boat....the toughest one is from LehommeDieu to Geneva...second bridge (geneva road) it's really tight for my bayliner capri...just watch the windshield....

the rest of the channels should be no problem...

good luck

Of course that't the one that I'm worried about. Thanks for the info. Last time I was up there (2 years ago) I was able to make it under as long as I took the pedastals out and laid them on the floor. Hopefully that's all it will be again this time.......

I was up there 2nd week in June had o problem getting my 520 Ranger through but did have to remove pedestals.

I'm fine then. All I have is a 17 foot Champion. I should be fine with the pedastals out.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?

      We were up this past weekend.  We got cold but did ok.  We caught around 40 walleye.  Most were 12-14" a handful of 14-16".  Good activity and a full fry pan, but no bigger fish.  Frazer and Smarts bays.  All Jig and minnow.  Mornings we found them at 24-26 FOW.  Evenings in 7-10 FOW.  Water temp was 50-52.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.
