1. Brother Gary and I fished Tuesday and had a great time Weather was beautiful with flat calm water. We landed six hybrids between 22 and 24 inches, three big catfish, ...more one 22 inch walleye, and a 12 inch bass. Bait was easy to get. We fished from 5 o’clock until noon. Water temperature was 78°.

  2. Tough fishing for hybrids today. Only landed 3, had another on. Full moon made bait very difficult to catch. 1.5 hours to catch 40 alwifes. Then the wind made boat ...more control almost impossible. I know, lotta excuses. Bent the trailer axle on a dead deer on the on the way. Then hit a poor cat. That hurts. Better days ahead!

  3. My brother Gary and I ended up landing 12 hybrids and 3 catfish today. Fished from 5:00 till 12:30. Wind got up real bad after 8:00 and we had a lot of problems ...more controlling the boat. When we marked a good school, the rods went down! Best trip so far this year for numbers

  4. Brother Gary and had a good morning on hybrids. Bait was tough to get but after 20 casts we had enough to fish with. We landed 6 hybrids and lost 3 others by 7:30. ...more Caught a couple cats. Biggest hybrid is pictured. Then the wind got up to about 10 mph and made it more difficult to fish the schools we found. Gonna fish till 11, try to find some more. Very fun day!

  5. I started this morning about 4 AM, was able to get bait fairly quickly. I started fishing around 5 o’clock. I caught the first fish at 6:30. I then caught two more ...more around 7 o’clock. Then broke two fish off between 7and nine so it’s been a good day so far.

      b, if I lived close to this lake I’d be here lots. I drive two hours to fish. the hybrids are a fantastic fish for me so is worth the drive. I’ll be renting a cabin ...more soon and hope to post better results.
    3. Randy Leventry 0
      ha ha on the break-offs. one got around a stump. the other one was user error.
    4. b ripoer 0
      Nice I live close by and never gave them much of a shot, always went for bass.
    5. Rick S 0

  6. I fished yesterday morning and this morning. Had a tough trip. But I did manage to land a small hybrid on a crankbait this morning at 5:20. Great fight on a spinning ...more rod! I switched to bait at 6:00. I had netted alwifes earlier and had plenty. One cast and I had a hundred. But I couldn’t buy a striper bite. Caught several cats as a consolation. Fished till 10:30. Hoping to get some good numbers in a week. I’ll be fishing multiple days.

  7. Harry and I had a great time at Lake Arthur today! Bait was easy to get. We didn’t catch much, but managed to get two hybrids one 26, one at 22 1/2. Tried catching ...more them on crank baits at dawn with no success. Alwifes were the ticket. Fished from 5 to 12:30.
