Fished for three hours today with family and the fish really cooperated. The gills were really nice. Many at 9 inches along with plenty at 8 inches. The bass were also easy today. The kids landed over 20 large and small mouth. Half dozen flat heads and sheeps galore as well.

walleye trip today with Larry and Steve. Started pulling cranks/3 ways and Steve hooked up right away. Got to the end of the pull and Larry hooked up as we drifted down with jigs/crawlers--3 more in 3 minutes. And so it went. had 10 in the box in about 3 hours. Guys decided to start throwing them back. Quite a few shorts, but maybe 35 eyes/saugers both pulling and jigging. Got down to our last crawler. Another boat came by long lining...and I mean LONG LINING. We crossed over at least 125' behind his boat. In a couple minutes we pulled up about 30 yds. away beside him. Angler yelled he was fighting the biggest fish of his life. One look at his bouncing baitcast rod and I came right to neutral. AT LEAST 100 YDS. of Fireline wrappied around my prop. Couldn't get it all cut off. Started working back towards the launch 2 miles away with the trolling motor, switched over to casting spinnerbaits and chatterbaits to pass the time. Guys caught several decent bass and snot rockets. Two gentlemen were pulling about a half-mile from where we suffered the illegal block in the back and towed us back toward the ramp. had them stop a quarter mile short so the guys could catch another half-dozen snot rockets and bass. Turns out one of the guys who helped us is a buddy of the Sheephead King who i guided a year or two ago. Small world. Loaded the boat and now must go pull the prop on both the outboard and the trolling motor which also has a bunch of Fireline wrapped around it. Feel bad about the other angler losing all that expensive FireLine. didn't catch his name--but he has my vote for Defensive Angler of the Year. Dull River is still dropping. Fishing getting better every day--but i can't honestly imagine it getting any better than it is right now!!!

Bluegills, white bass, sheephead and some walleye and sm bass thrown in for good measure. Its been pretty fun out on the barge all weekend. Everyone seemed to be able to catch something out here. It was really fun to see the wall up by the dam for a change, it was April 11th or so the last time we saw it. For those of you who fish up there. They will be doing some work on all the rock up there, so it will be closed down for a couple weeks very soon. I will try to post the exact date once I find out. Don't be surprised if you see it fenced off for the work crew.

Thank you Captain Ted for the great fishing trip last Friday. I appreciate all the tips you shared so readily with us during the time we spent together. You really know this stretch of the river. To anyone looking to hire a guide and improve their fishing skills, I highly recommend Ted Peck. You will have a great time!

fun fishin for a few hours early this morning. Started drifting for eyes. 3 legals, a dozen shorts, an entire herd of sheep...great mudline developing. Put on a spinnerbait and went for LMB and snot rockets. Nothing huge, but some respectable fish. Highlight of trip was an 11" perch with an identity crisis--fish hit a 3/4 oz. Northland MAGNUM spinnerbait. Not much of a tussle on that med. hvy. Croix and 90 lb. powerpro. Blackened perch and sauger for lunch! Smile

Took the kids out the past couple days. They had an absolute blast gill'n it. Couldn't even begin to tell you how many we caught but can tell you we went through 3 dozen crawlers a pinch at a time. Action was so good Saturday morning for a couple of hours it was tough to get my pole in the water! Healthy mix of 7 to 9 inch gills and an occasional LMB.

Fished with Roy today, a multi species outing. He wanted a few walleyes for a fry, then whatever. Started out after some walleyes. First stop we had 12 in a couple hours, 4 nice eaters to 19", and 8 shorts, a nice smallie and northern. Caught those casting cranks. After releasing the northern I told him I'd cooked one on the grill yesterday for the wife and myself, on tin foil with lots of butter, some seasoning, and it was great. I was gonna move on to another walleye spot but he said, "that's enough walleyes, don't want to be hogish", GOTTA LOVE GUYS LIKE THAT. How about a spot for some northerns? Like to try one on the grill. Went to some clean water and caught northerns, SMB, LMB, a couple more walleyes, all throwing chatterbaits. Kept one nice pike for a meeting with the grill. Steady action all day long, caught fish everyplace we went! Old Man river pretty generous right now. Great to fish with a guy that doesn't need a "limit". Lot's of folks out enjoying the river again, great to see.

See Ya on the river

The river levels continue to fall and fishing is very good right now. The last couple of days I’ve been fishing walleyes and bluegills with pretty good success. Friday I was out scouting around and caught some nice walleyes trolling cranks and fishing a jig/crawler. Fished bluegills for a little over an hour and caught those in the picture, along with throwing back several more. Yesterday I fished with a great couple from Madison. We started out trolling walleyes and they quickly boated 3 keepers on the first pass. Caught a few more before we started fishing bluegills. They kept 18 nice ones for a fish fry. They also caught a bonus channel cat and a nice flathead. The river was full of people enjoying the beautiful summer day.

Thanks for reading my reports, and hope you have a good week!

Report for last few days fishing. been scouting for upcoming trips. Walleyes have been real good. "Lost Once", been on a perch search south, have found quite a few, but mostly 6"ers, but with the water still dropping, I'm pretty sure we can find some jumbo's somewhere.

Had the chance to take the wife out fishing for a while this morning. She wanted a couple walleyes for the pan. Fished five spots caught eyes in four of them. Had to bring her in early, to clean HER fish! All I could catch was 12"ers, while she was catching all the 18"-20"ers. Don't think that didn't get rubbed in a little!!!

Lots of folks out on the river today, finally enjoying the great river again!

See Ya on the river
