Ended up being a good week for my first week back in action.
Fished Okauchee on Wednesday.
Switched gears a bit, started fishing tight and deep in cover and went
on a couple hour shooting spree...had a dozen+ mixed LM and SM..some on
both sides of legal, but with three real quality fish mixed in. Also
broke off a small musky.
Caught a couple more closer to the launch on the way back. Not rock-em/sock-em robots or anything, but a decent midday run.
Fished Oconomowoc Thursday for Musky.
Struck out, but had five follows between 1-8pm. Fish were using transition areas with bait fish nearby. Pulled a nice one up to the boat mid-afternoon on a mini-dawg, but just couldn't get the fish to commit on the figure eight. Looked to be a mid-40's in about 8 FOW.
Saw a couple of smaller fish after that, but about 4:45 we saw some gar feeding near where we were fishing. A big fish followed in a glider we worked through the area where the gar were busting minnows on the surface. Fish was high 40's, had it right up to the boat, but again a fairly lazy follow.
Fished Oconomowoc Friday for Bass.
Fished Lake X Saturday.
Lake X is my secret project lake right now. As usual, Lake X is a special underfished place, with just solid fishing for numbers and size of multiple gamefish. Yesterday was no different...30+ bass (14-19") and six pike (24-34") in just over three hours of fishing.
Good Luck Out There.
