June 24th, 2013 - Turtle Flambeau Flowage - Mercer Wisconsin 54547

posted Jun 25, 2013, 7:25 AM by Jeff Robl
The Fishing on the TFF has been very good all season(once the ice was gone). We're now into prime time fishing the water temps are in that magic 70* range the predator fishes metabolism are high and the forage base is not yet in huge abundance like late summer. We're past the May cold front days where a big temp drop and north wind can almost shut the walleye fishing down. Even on tough bite days there are numbers of catchable bass and walleyes to be had. Good example, last two days: yesterday after the morning rain the skies got sunny the wind kicked up and with the big chop came a big bite we had a great numbers day 30-35 walleyes and some nice smallmouths. Today we had flat water most of the day and bright skies the fish in the areas we fished were not nearly as aggressive but we still had a nice catch of fish.

Still doing well in 7-8' rock, wood, sand bottom catching fish in other depths as well. One of the best flowage structures is big stumps on the edge of river channels(can spend a whole day of scouting to come up with one or two good ones). Last spot today we were fishing bass on the big water side late in the day, had to try a walleye spot to finish the day 10'hump with wood/rock hadn't fished since last august. Love the feel of that thump when they suck up the 1/16 oz. jig and today mostly crawlers, its finally summer!

Thank you to all the people who chose my guide service. Can't wait to get to work tomorrow!
