    It has been a rather cool week for August but that is not a bad thing especially with bear baiting and the start of bear season right around the corner.  The cooler weather has also jump started the fishing this past week and we are seeing more activity while on the water.

    The fishing has slowed in recent day, it was still good early in the week but as the heat continued the fishing slowed tremendously.  The best bite on the lake remains the bluegills.  They are constant throughout the lake.  They are large and feisty. Early in the week the largemouth bass were on the deep weedlines in 18-20 ft of wat...

    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 / ...
