Thanks for the info- I guess I will start doing my rain dancing now! I always thought that when the water is lower the east side is less affected. The fish will stay in shallow water because of the dark stained water. But I've been up there years when the water has been very very low and the fish seem to move early into there fall locations. Either way low water sucks!!!! I'll be up on the 28th and looking for big ones-can't wait.

See ya at Sysko's, Brett Tounge Out

The reason for the draw down was low water in the river. I am asuming it will be a gradual draw down. Will the east side of the lake be more affected than the west?

Just wanted to know if there was any reason given for the drawdown? In years passed when the water drops that quick the bass usually hang out for a while real shallow but if it's hot and after sometime they will move out. i'm going up for two weeks the end of the month, low water doesn't hurt bass fishen to much but makes tageting muskies not so much fun. I guess once again it's time to take extra care of those lower units. Sad

See ya, Brett

There is plenty of room to get through at "Herman's". The bog was about 1/4 mile away as of 7/6/07. The fishing was pretty good last week for us. My fiance caught a 26 1/2 inch walleye friday evening about 6:10 fishing with a night crawler under a slip bobber over a bog. about a half hour later, I caught a 26 1/2 incher the same way. Caught a few more between 17 and 20 1/2. I don't have much time right now, but if anyone is interested I can post the pictures of the twins. Good luck and be safe out there.

Caught several bass on bogs with a power worm and some smallies on rocks with a tube. But I have a question. I heard that the lake will be drawn down by 3 feet by the 1st of August. How will this effect the bass fishing? Will the smallies suspend and how will the largemouth adjust?

I have not heard anything about the bog at the bridge the last couple of weeks. Is it still around there causing problems or is it way out.

I was on the Flowage June 28-July 6. Fished East Side areas from Treland's to Moore's Bay. Found good (for me) walleye in 6-9 feet off weeds. Mostly cigars, but a mix of 14-16 inchers.

Smallmouth fishing great in 3-7 feet off rock or in light weeds. 15-18 inchers were routine.

Best bait was a red and yellow tube with leech. They also took white jig with leech or crawler.

I'm heading up to the flowage on the 9TH for a week with my kids and need advice as to some easy fish for the kids to catch, last year a father, son shared a spot with us and we caught some nice walleye's

I fished here with my father for about 15 years for muskie and lost him just recently after a heart attack

I want to share some of the same fish catching times with my kids, they are to young and impatient for muskie

Please give advice looking for any that swim's

Thanks the kids and I appreciate it

Crane Lake is a deeper clear natural lake, lots of deep Cabage weed- fish the weedline for big Crappie- also a good Northern and LM bass Lake- walleye are a little harder to get in the day- weedlines are your best bet- The Crane creek going in can be great LM bass and Northern fishing- also can be good Walleye in weeds on the shorelines-JIM

Conditions: Sunny Air Temp: 71° - 75° F Water Temp: 71° - 75° F
Just finished about a 5 day stretch on the Flowage- the Walleye bite has slowed with the 2 cold fronts- still caught some fish- about 6 keepers each day- but way slower and the fish were on the smaller side- keepers were only 14-15 inches- caught lots of 10-12 cigars deep. I fished mostly humps- fished in 16-22ft. the weed bite was slow- except on the gills- lots of nice gills in 5-8 foot. I think the bigger Eyes are in a transition and will show up shallow on weed lines- two weeks ago they were in the weeds good- the water drop effected them as well as some cold fronts. I think the fish are starting to scatter again and go to the weeds, just havent been able to find the large concentrations yet- That should change as the weeds get thicker- also the water has dropped about 14 inches in the last week- that is most likely effecting the fishing also. Crappie are starting to show up on the cribs good. JIM LEAHY

Johnson's has some on Moore's Bay. If your looking for something nice they have one 17ft. Lund with a 90hp, windscreen, trolling motors, locators, etc. It's around $800 per week. Muskytale has row-boats with 9.9hp for much, much less. Trelands is also good good rigs but very slow and I think ther're still about $600-$700 per week. Hope that helps. Good Luck.
