The walleye bite yesterday was very good we didn't find big fish but did catch a lot of fish up to 15". We caught and released some 16-18" smallmouth. Fish were caught on slip bobbers, casting 1/8 oz. slow falls, a few on dead sticks, a number of fish were caught vertical jigging, crawlers and leeches were used for bait.

One area that produced a number of fish was the windward edge of an 8' flat, the fish were not up on the 8' but on the edge in 10-11' there were stumps on the edge of the flat. We also did well fishing 13-14' areas with sand bottom, some rocks and stumps, a great combination.

Friends Sam and Dillon came to Mercer from southern Wisconsin to fish, their six friends came to four wheel. There are some great trails in the Mercer area for four wheeling.
