My nephew is going up to Bowstring this week end and asked me if I would put out a post and see if anything is shaking.

This be the post, so what up? Anything going on at Bowstring recently?

Fished Bowstring this past weekend and found very little activity. Have to admit that we didn't hit it hard, but we marked lots of fish of the deeper breaks 19-22 ft. of water, with 21 feet being a common depth off some of the west and southwest sand bars, and 18 ft. marking many off the north humps. We were dragging various assortments of live bait rigs, crawlers and leeches and we miss a few certain walleye bites, but nothing hitting fast and feverish.

I like bowstring, always worth a try. We have had some great fishes, but for every great day we have 3 or 4 where we really work for every fish we get.

Good luck, and post any results. Always curious to know what they are doing, even though I cannot always be on the lake.

Jason and Hampster..."Dunka" dudes, I'll pass along the info and if they don't give me a report to pass back to you, I'll personally wring their necks for about 3 minutes, on your behalf. grin.gif

Well, the boys went up to boewstring alright and they went out of a place called Georgenes, or something like that? Anyhow, it's on the north side of the lake.

I guess they fished all over the lake, different spots, for the week-end and for the most part, did'nt catch guano!

They had 3 decent walleyes and a few other smaller fish, that was about it, nothing to write home about, that's for sure!

That is the name for the owners George and his wife Gene.

At least that was the deal many years ago. I allways like the ancor bouys they had there.

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      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?
