I did really good there on Wednesday for Crappie and some bluegill. Probably 150 fish or so. Plastics a couple feet under a float working the docks.

Yep, still no wake.
Also watch for floating debris.

No crappie where we tried today but the cats were in a frenzy. Spoke to a guy who said 54 in the main lakes he fished. Had some pics of some monster walleyed. I mean monsters. Great day to be out!

I am pretty sure they lifted the no wake. I never made a wake all day but saw lots of boats and jet skis flying around. We fished Marie and did OK on the white bass. Got sick of the wind around 1 and left

Water temp 58deg.
Several walleye, one real dandy.
Found gills but no crappie today.
Water is real high, can't believe they lifted the no wake

58-60 degree surface temps on the main lakes.
All the bass tourney guys yesterday I spoke to reported a slooow day.
We were targeting muskie and only boated an esox of the wrong species.
Things are stabilizing a bit . I'd expect more than just male action on the skies soonish.

Surface temps were 59-63 and murky,still. Suspension and chopped weeds. About 2.5 visibility on Channel .
Moved two females ,34-40" which would have nothing to do with committing.
One big strike away from the boat from something big, ( I was using a custom
umbrella rig with 8-#5 colorados and weighs 4 oz...the fish was big) a missed hookset and that was all the action of the day.
Going through the breeding motions and in the shallows.

Water surface temps are about 58 now. Much better visability in many areas.
Females should be much done going through the motions by now.
Boated 42" and 37" males yesterday on spinnerbaits and inlines I make .
Still no wake , so now is the time to hammer them before the idiot wakers and jet skis infest.
