Summer About Here

Sorry so long to post a fishing report. I had to take over cabin cleaning duties this spring as my parent’s health has kept my sister (who cleaned for me)close to their house. Late in May my Father passed away, then a close cousin in a car accident.

Spring temps were cool and made for an on and off again spawn. Two groups did hit it right and caught fish off of the beds, including a 9.5 lb fish.

Water temp finally got into the 80’s last week, and it’s time to drag out the big plastic worms. There has been some good topwater action and I hooked two in the 4 lb range on one evening bite. I had a monster blow up on my Spook that same evening, a much bigger fish.

The water is high and stable. Clarity is variable across the lake, but on average is not as stained as normal for June. I am looking forward to the onset of a strong summer bite as the grass beds are back after 2 years where the flooding wiped them out. Reservations continue to trickle in and follow the usual July-August pattern of 15 days advance notice for a weekend spot.

I am doing a better job of updating our facebook page with current photos and reports. Check us out over there! Don Kentner
