8/11 take two
Sometimes the afternoons can be a bit slower fishing than the mornings, but sometimes when the fish are picky in the morning, you get the benefit of what your captain learned during the morning of fishing. 

After a late start due to a rough lake and a few moves in the morning due to picky fishing I knew exactly where to start my afternoon crew. 
The lake was nearly calm when we pointed sparkles north out of the marina at around 3:30pm. We had a few hours to make it happen and we couldnt have picked a better afternoon. 
The conditions seemed to get even better as time went on, and I was able to work over that pocket of fish I discovered in the morning. Not a boat in sight, a calm lake, and some young guys to keep busy reeling. We even let their dad reel in a few :) Especially the small ones :D 

My crew did great on the rods, the music choice didnt seem to matter as much as it did this morning πŸ€“. But, the vibes were vibing as the fish were coming. Speeds remain largely the same, and the worm program did all the work. 

A great afternoon with these fellas, and before you know it we were headed back to the dock with a full live well and lots of fillets were headed to their new home out west.

8/11 A little break thanks to bad weather and other plans, then another late start. 
It was good to catch up on some things around the house earlier this week, but thank goodness it was time to fish again. 
The forecast had a case of the northies AGAIN, and the lake was kinda mad when I got to the water. I waited it out and stayed in touch with my folks. We gave it a couple hours and then made the call to run with it. 
We launched around 8:40 to a somewhat sloppy lake, but I could tell it was starting to lay down. The weather buoy was on the fritz and we were lucky that we made the call to hit the water. I made the call to head pretty far north to give us a great troll with the waves for as long as possible. The trouble with that call was that the fish were all kinds of spread out. That said the first fish of the day was an absolute tank. We made our way a bit shallower and sorted through some miscellaneous farm animals. Then we moved, setup again and the picking was slim... Pulled gear and one more move before we landed on walleye central. Its amazing what a few miles under the boat will do. 
As we made our way here and there the lake laid right down and was almost completely flattened out by the end of our trip. 

We found a pocket of fish that were hungry and we picked away at them until the picking was done. Overall a great batch of fish, caught by some great company on the water made it a great one. 

Todays program involved some deep water searching with meat and lead weight, and a couple of really high crank baits. Worms still ruled the day. For the record classic rock seemed to be the music of choice. We started with some harder rock in the morning and I dont think the fished like that very much. πŸ˜†

Overall it was a great day with regular guests that I have really had a ball with this year. Weve chased Lakers and Walleye together and I can always count on the stories and the FISH ON!!! 
It was a great day to have a great day!

8/5 Changing winds and burnt arms. 
Returning guests + one joined me for a morning walleye meat mission. Fish fries need some fish after all. The morning part of our adventure was put on hold thanks to some rough seas. I spent the morning hanging around the lakeshore wishing that it would die down and we could get out. My wish came true after a few hours of hanging around, and I made the call to have my guests for the day join me. 

I dropped the boat in the water after 9am, and the fellas joined me a little while after that. From there we hit the inshore fish for another go round, and found them to be mostly hungry. Today we were faced with pockets of fish. When you were in them, it was great, when you were out of them, it was a ghost town. We picked away at them, and my guys worked their way through their limit in a few hours time. We were also joined by my best friend of  that REEEAAALLYY liked the view of the back of my boat, this day, but hey, it is a nice boat :D

My shallow water program armed us mostly with flicker minnows and a couple bottom bouncers covered our catch for the day. Some fish were lost, and many were caught. The fish made me work for it a bit this day, and I even rolled up my sleeves... Too bad I forget to roll them down #dumbesttanlineever 

I had a great time with these fellas, and I cant want to see them again next year. Yep, we do it for the fillets some days, but were always fishing for the smiles.

Nice job…

8/3 fathers and sons, both of which were grand :) 
Experienced angler grandson and less experienced angler grandfather joined me for a morning walleye adventure. With visions of deep water giants in my head we pointed the glitterrocket northwest out of the harbor in search of toothy critters. 

We were greeted by a little chop on the water, but we stuck with them, and the critters kept on coming. As it was, the deep water giants were less than cooperative, but we still ended up with a great bag of fish for my duo.

8/2 take 2
This afternoon we had our game plan right out of the gate. The inshore bite was solid, and that is where we headed. 
Smiles were more than on the menu, they were in the name. One of guests last name as a matter of fact :) 

This afternoon we stuck to our guns and we worked out way through the shallows with and managed to hook about twice as many fish as we landed, but it worked out in the end. We sent some walleye fillets on their way to Texas if they lasted that long. 

Good times, and great smiles, and also dead cellphones so limited photos :D
