We need some stable weather! Fishing was decent in that hot stretch because it was stable- The best crappie fishing of the year is around the corner. I have also done well trolling on the flowage for Walleye-its a good way to find them when fishing is slow-then you can fish them slow with live bait and have confidence your near some fish. Its amazing some of the places I have been locating fish trolling that I normally wouldn't fish in if I was looking for them on a slow live bait presentation-JIM

Bluegill, that all depends on what species of fish your targeting. West side for LG mouth, Northern, crappies and walleye, but that bite has slowed. Once water temps cooled and the algae bloom is done, the fish will be more active. until then, I've been working mostly the East side. Finding Crappies, walleye and SM bass down deep around rock bars and cribs. Musky action remains decent with bucktails and surface baits as well.

Spent last week on the Chip with the wife, my 2 daughters and the son-in-law. Stayed at Lake Chippewa Campground and had a great time. Hired "Buck Nasty" from Crib Creeper Guide Service to fish crappies on Sunday August 16th and had one of the best times I've ever experienced on the Chip. We've been coming to the Chip for 30 plus years and have hired many guides in the past but none were as knowledgeable and entertaining as Buck Nasty. Great guide and I highly recommend him if you are looking to put quality fish in the boat. Ended the day with 35 crappie. We fished sunken bogs, cribs, humps and brush piles. This guy knows his stuff when it comes to crappies. We caught fish the rest of the week. Great time!!!

Conditions: Partly Sunny
Guided Joe and Grant out of Shady Nook Resort on Saturday. Under extreme windy conditions, we managed to box 30 Crappies. We fished mostly cribs that we out of the wind and it was still tough keeping the boat straight. Slip bobbers set right above the top of the cribs using GULP! and Berkley Powerbait Honey Worms on a 1/16 jig, tricked quite a few as well.

On a side note during our trip, ended up helping stranded boaters that we're blown to an remote island shore, waving a white T shirt. They we're pretty lucky that I was going by because there's not much boat traffic on that part of the lake. Found out that the had a dead starter battery. No trolling motor on the boat so they couldn't swap out the batteries for a quick fix. They got a lesson on how to emergency rope start the outboard by yours truly. Glad it was only a 40 horse to pull over and that it started after 6 or so pulls. Soon enough they we're on the way back to the dam boat launch. People, please check out your equipment before you get on the lake. Especially charging the batteries before hand.

Good luck, be safe and we'll see you on the water! TC

Seiously the water is 2 ft low already? I was just up there about 3 to 4 weeks ago and it was full pool, why drop it so fast?

Cooper02, where are you staying, east side or west side? I was at Indian Trail Resort,east side,in early June for walleyes and crappies. Half way though our week long stay the Musky action started picking up and has been going great ever since. If you want to catch a Musky in my opinion the flowage is the place go. You wont catch giants but if your any good at it and put in your time you will catch more than one. Check out the Indian Trail Resort web site. They keep track of the Muskies caught out of their resort. Click on the "Musky Chart". You will see some guys are catching two or three in a week depending on the weather. I know most of these guys are regulars and know the hot spots but I was so impressed with the Musky action I'm going back in Sept. The area around Indian Trail has great structure, you don't need to go far from that place to find Muskies.

Hey all - taking my son and his friend out on the flowage at the end August. Hoping for some tips as I know musky fishing can be tough especially when I am not all that familiar with the water. Hoping to get on one to give the kids a little musky fever. I looked at a guide and decided to pass for now however my get one for next time.

Not asking for anything specific, simply general stuff. Bays, lakes, islands, general areas. Appreciate anything, would love to get one in the boat for my boy. PM if you would like.

Best.
