Was it Curly Leaf that disappeared?

That happens when the water temps gets to the low 80s.

Bizarre, I still need to make my way out there. It's a hour and 20 minute drive from my house though so I always find and excuse to stay closer. :'(

Craig, we'll go during fall time, that's when it gets crazy. I've never seen that vegetation flip like that there, only when fall comes and every lake flips, very strange. Soooo many bait fish everywhere, all day, just looked exactly like how it looks come fall. Even saw a 30" walleye floating dead, it was huge, looked like a prop hit it, half it's face was gone.

I was out this morning, sure felt like Fall! Windy and cool out. Fishing was decent, got 12-15 with the biggest being 19in and I think the smallest was 10in! Caught a few on a DT Fat1 and lipless, but most came on a jig later in the morning. Water Dropped from 73 on Thurs, to 68-69 this morning. Fall is just around the corner.  ~cf

Yeah, It always comes quicker than a guy thinks! I figure we got over 2 months yet to fish. Maybe a little longer if you don't deer hunt. Once it locks up, then it is time for the ice gear to come out!

The dog and I made it out last night for a few hours. Funny, couldn't buy a bite on a jig this time. Scraped up a few on a lipless and a few more on the DT Fat1 in shallow. Biggest, an 18incher came on the Fat. Water temp moved back up to 74.
The lake really greened up from last time out. Even had that thick Blue/Green scum on it in spots :shocking:. I was hoping the dog wouldn't jump in, he's on edge about every splash he sees! Landing a fish is always an adventure with him trying to help me out.

Anybody going somewhere cool this weekend? I'm heading to the swamp, haven't been there in about 6 weeks, weather looking good!

I'll be up in Hubbard county all of next week chasing some dark green northern bass! They're a little prettier up there, compared to some of the pale ones I get down here. Dark green backs and dark black lines!  Hopefully the cabin chores and tourist stuff don't take up to much fishing time. ~cf

Gl craig, go get'um! From what I read about that lake, most tournaments are won anywhere from 13-18lbs.

Found a few but didn't lay waste to them like I had hoped. Coolest part of the day was when I found a good looking spot on my Side Imaging and I could see 3 fish away from the weed edge. Threw a dropshot out and got 2 of them on back to back casts.. Other than that it was pretty slow. Water temps 67-68. Big one came on a jig that I tossed in after it missed my buzz bait.

Nice fish!
Went out this morning on a local lake, before heading up north tomorrow. Was kinda slow, only could squeeze out 6. Funny, each one was caught on a different bait. Even got one on a dropshot, which I stink at. ~gf

Thanks for the report and glad you were able to catch six even if it wasn't on the sane bait. ~c~ ~c~

Hey Dan, that's still a good day. And the important thing is the fish don't know that you stink at it.  lo
