    You will never find a warmer October than we have this year.  The fish are in a bit of a funk due to the extended heat wave we are having.  The lake temperatures have actually been increasing over the past week. Rock bass can be readily caught in the 12-15 ft depth range.  They are being caught on split shot rigged nightcrawlers or ...

    Fishing has been very tough over the last week or so.  The warm weather has confused the fish and they aren’t sure whether they should be in their fall or summer patterns.  The best bite on the lake remains the walleye.  They can be caught off the weedlines. Walleye pike can be caught trolling deep diving crank baits or jiggin...
