    1. FYI. That's not a walleye. That's a smallmouth bass.
  2. Launched at 640 am had a 2 person limit by 840. Took longer to drive there than to catch them. Great day!

  8. After a slow bite for bass the past few weeks is finally picked up again on this day. Using live crays and tubes my dad and I caught 5 smallies and a walleye (and ...more a few Sheephead) . This one here was a great fight, 19"

    Smallmouth Bass with a Live crayfish

    1. jeff mcelroy 0
      good fish
  9. Hot humid day, bright skies with big puffy white clouds, wind blowing my drift from west to east side of shipping channel. Typical hit on a bondy bait, felt a "tick" ...more on the downstroke of my vertical jig and then the electricity of a live fish on the upstroke and then immediately set the hook. Good fight for about 90seconds before I corralled her into the net. First musky of the year for me! 35 inches.

    10 lb. 8 oz. 35 in. Muskellunge with a Bondy Bait (black)
