Mid week "action"

Guided for a father and son combo on Okauchee yesterday. The weather was windy and downright horrible, and the corresponding bite was tough. Got one pike and a handful of largemouth bass, before we packed it in.

Hit Oconomowoc just for a look see. Caught one nice smallie on a long line live bait split shot. Appears the bass are still deep for the most part, but there's a batch of walleyes using some of the shallow rocky areas.

Moved over to Silver for the first time this year, water is high and cold (mid 50's). Lots of bass cruising the shallows including some larger than average ones. The wind prevented me from wacky worming or throwing a jig and chunk, but I managed 25 LM bass between 10-16" in about two hours on a smoke colored grubs. The water is extremely clear, even by Silver Lake standards. Most of the piers and lifts are not in, and the fish I caught were all along the drops to deeper water.

I'll be out tommorrow, and I'll post some pictures from the last couple days.

Lakemaster Maps

While I don't have the formal sponsorships that many pro-anglers have, I don't mind telling you when I find a product that I like is available.

The Lakemaster maps are fantastic. I just got copies of the new maps for Okauchee, Lac Labelle and Nagawicka. I helped write the lake reviews for these lakes, and they show alot of structure that some of the other maps have left off.

There's a link to their website in the right hand column.
