Fishing report:

The walleye fishing the last three days has been slow. In the pursuit of walleye we have found some nice 8-11" perch, the perch bite has been on a piece of crawler over bobbers in 11-13' with wood structure. We have been catching walleyes the last few days but low #;s of keepers. Had a late day trip yesterday with customers looking for smallmouth, we pounded shoreline rocks with few takers, did have a big one on my favorite top water, a Rapala skitter pop. With the sun low we drifted a stump flat , 4-8', I put on a salmo and second cast had a nice walleye, we made three short passes and caught a smallmouth or two each pass. If you're interested in smb you might want to look other places then shallow rocks.

As I have said in the past even when the fish "aren't biting" you can catch fish on the TFF fishing the right structure ,today on a tough bite day we kept 3 walleyes, 11 nice perch, 1-11" crappie and a smb just over 15" ( the perfect keeping size) and other perch, bass and small walleye released. The previous two days were similar catches.

Monday was a good walleye bite with the storms blowing through and 30+ mile an hour winds the fish were snappin. We started fishing humps on the big water side. Since I was young ,fishing on Winnebago, I've always liked that kind of weather, my boat likes the big chop and my customers Charlie and son Tim weren't bothered by the nice 3' walleye chop. But when it got over 30 mph we had to hide from the wind. That's where Charlie caught a walleye a little over 27", we had another big one on, in the same spot that got off ,half way back to the boat. Please don't get the wrong impression if my customers are uneasy with the conditions or if I sense any real danger we come in, but I do love the rough water.

Next report I would like to tell about the past may fly hatches and their implications to walleye fishing.
