Another great group of people, awesome job you guys.
Walleye today.
Awesome team of Bankers, good work guys and the Special Girl.

No big ones but lots of action today, even in the snowy morning conditions. Pattern is staying the same, for now but, will soon change, as water temps continue to rapidly drop. Turn over is happening as this post is printed, on certain lakes.

All fish were deep on a clear lake, in Presque isle WI. and all fish were related to man made wood (drift wood) log piles in 33 ft of water.
These fish were caught this morning, vertical jigging with minnows. Snowed all morning, a non rainy forecast is predicted for the next few days.

As always, stay positive, think clearly, do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

Another great group of people.
Switched over to Smallies.

Slip bobbers and chubs over Deep wood (33 ft) structure on a deep clear lake produced these Fish. Cold and breezy the last few days and a few more rolling in, with the rain next week.

On a different note, I watched some nice people pulling Crappies and a couple of Perch off my point in the weeds, after I was done working my 1/2 day today. Couldn't miss them, Red Ranger, Orange hat, Red hoodie.

Behind in posting, getting caught up.

Another great group of people supporting Northern Wisconsin. An awesome group today, more new friends.

Switched over to Perch. As some know, they also are hard hitting and don't give up, if they want the bait, there going to get it. Deep wood structure on a deep clear lake produced these Jumbos. 14 were kept and 31 were put back. All on a piece of crawler and a small hook. On a different note, I watched some people pulling Crappies off my point in the weeds, after I was done working, some nice ones to boot.

As always, stay positive, think clearly, do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

Our fish were hard hitting, around 25 ft. Minnows were best (for us.) Slow presentation was best at the bottom of the weed line on the flat.

The water temps are going to start to drop off as the cold front just rolled in. Wind switched to the north a couple hours ago and the humidity is gone and the temp is 10 degrees cooler than 4 PM.

(“NO FISH NO PAY, GUARANTEED”).

Another great group of people supporting Northern Wisconsin. An awesome client today, another new friend.

As the temps go back into the high 70's and low 80's all this coming week and week end the water temps are again back on the rise. Turn over is going to be late this year.

A bonus quality Pike. All fish were caught on minnows, close to the weeds or the ledges. Slowly working the bait was mandatory. Smaller minnows were best and the color of our hook made a positive increase in how many strike we received. Some rock piles also produce, a deeper hump was best.

As always, stay positive, think clearly, do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

(“NO FISH NO PAY, GUARANTEED”).

Another great group of people supporting Northern Wisconsin. An awesome family, new friends.

Although cool weather of the last several days has been taking place, a warm up is on its way starting Wednesday and lasting thru Saturday, low 80's for Friday and Saturday. As currently forecast.

Our Walleye today were caught from different locations. Some were in the deep wood and some were from the weeds. Minnows were best today although, we did use Crawlers with no luck. The bite was strong, solid hits. Slip bobbers worked and yes, the color of our hook did make all the difference.

As always, stay positive, think clearly, do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

Working the deeper water was best for us. A simple Crappie minnow was good. Bobbers work, Jigs work and even trolling is working.

Working the deeper water was best for us. A simple jig and minnow was good, although a couple of fish were on a jig and crawler.

All fish were hard hitting. 2 also were caught while trolling but your bait had to be close to the bottom.

Awesome people, the best and reliable friends, as well as long time clients. Many fish came aboard today and only a few were kept for a fish fry.

The strike was what you may say as normal, a soft tap and set the hook. Minnows were best , for us.

Weed ledges were best and again, for our day.

This guy is a true friend as I have worked with him on multiple occasions. All fish were very light hitting. All fish were caught on minnows, deeper water today was better, for us.

An ultra slow presentation was mandatory, bobbers or dead sticking over the side of the boat was the final solution and, it paid off.

These smiles say it all. Awesome family and awesome new friends, God Bless you guys.

Today, the gill bite was much slower (for us.) Although over 50 were boated in 3 hours, we left and enjoyed this days bounty, 14 were kept.

All fish on a 1/32 oz jig. The bite was much softer as the air temp was 30 degrees cooler than yesterday AM and the lake was steaming all morning.The fly hatch was over from the day before although, when I filleted the Gills we kept there stomachs were bursting from the fly hatch.
