Got to the lake and started to fish at 8 am. I was told at the Marina that nothing much doing trolling. :-/ Most people were fishing the south end so I headed to Badger cove and caught 1 but small and let it release itself, :D Tried Swallow bay and Heron bay for Nada. at 10:30 I was trolling the south side in the dam area and was picking up fish until noon. Caught and released all 8 fish. Nothing of any size.

Rapala black/silver and firetiger Kastmaster did the best. 1 on a Perch Rapala. toplining 1 fish, 8 fish on downriggers at the dam 20-25 feet. Water temp was 66-67 degrees.

Had a fun day. Did have a dead starting battery at the dam when I was ready to go to launch. Thank god I had 2 more batteries for the trolling motor. Pulled one of those out to start the main motor. ::)

Going out to buy a replacement now.

FireTrout,

Great report. At least you were able to land a few of those planters so it wasn't a total let down. Did people in South End have any luck?
