Oconomowoc Lake 6-5-11
Out today looking for bass 5am-11:30am.
Struggled for the first hour. Tried some topwaters and raised several nice fish over a point, but struck out on getting any in the boat. Switched to plastics and started picking a few off about a half hour after sunrise.
Worked obvious structural stuff, then moved to secondary spots, and really got on a hot pattern.
Ended with more than 25 bass, 8 of which were smallmouth. Incredible fishing today, but very precise approach was required for the bigger fish. Saw five musky in 8-10 feet and a couple more in the river.
Gills have moved up to spawn, lots of bass in the shallows chasing bait, and when the wind was down and we could see into the deep water, we saw walleyes all over the deeper sandy points. Lake flies still hatching out, but getting towards the end of that madness. Weeds starting, but way behind for early June. Baitfish everywhere.
