were still fishing kinda

The fishing got a little tougher since my last report. I had the pleasure of taking Brian and Jim from chicago last weekend. the winds were very nasty and made for some tough fishing. Both days we had to work our way over to the north shore as the waves we realing rolling in. the first day we had fun catchiung some sheephead but the walleye did not cooperate. saturday the wind were about the same 20 mph out of the northwest. After catching two sheephead and one small walleye I decided we should try fishing the wind blown side of the lake. We manage to catch one 19 inch walleye drifting. After 5 drifts through the same general area I threw in the towel and we called it a day.
Today I was able to get out for 2 hours from 11am till 1 and managed two catch two 19 inch walleyes.One drifting the other trolling. lets hope things are looking up as my mom amd dad are coming up from Iowa this weekend and it would be nice to catch some fish while there here.

The wihe Kellie and I did a little fishing yesterday July 3rd. We got on the lake around 11 am . The first area we fished we drifted jigs as Kellie did not want to troll. After landing two sheephead we headed out deeper. After throwing out a marker to mark the spot we played the kight wind and drifted over the area. The first drift we both landed a small waleye. The second driftalso produce a small walleye and a miss. The third drift landed a keeper walleye. All the fish seemed to becoming in about the same spot so I anchored up wind , It did not take that long to catch another keeper and again a few smaller ones. After are third keeper we pulled anchor and went for a short ride to cool off. I then anchored closer to are marker and Kellie tagged into a big pike. The battle was on as I tried to insturct her so we could land the fish. she did a great job as the fish made numerous runs everytime we had it near the boat. With the big net in hand i was able to get the fish in the net and unhook the jig. kellie got the camera out and I held the pike up for a quick pic.We were able to release the fish unharmed a beautiful pike just under 40 inches.
