    The summer heat wave is upon us.  The fishing remains pretty good as long as you get out early in the a.m. or late in the p.m.  The boat traffic on the lake makes fishing in the middle of the day pretty difficult.  Most of the fish are relating to deep water structure.  The best fishing is consistently the smallmouth or walleyes...

Musky baits and top water tail baits (Whopper Ploppers and Pace Makers) have worked well over thick weed mats, especially pre – front conditions. Big bladed buck tails / ...

    Steve Suman This week’s forecast indicates a rather erratic mix of sun and showers, with – much like fishing for some species – no consistent pattern.
