Not sure if its finally a nice enough fish to report or just something to give the members to review until the next wave of local reports...but will say that this state offers a great array of trophy fishing (trout, stripers, walleye) if you ever get bored of local/regional waters. Can't imagine a scenario (except to bail on the people in CO and the goats/wind in WY), but hey just sharing a decent option.

The fishing continues to produce healthy table fair, but the 40+ pound trophy's continue to elude me...but did manage my largest fish this year, an 18lb fatty

The fish have made it out into the main lake(s) in this region. Chasing shad off the points. Haven't quite schooled up yet, but starting too. 50-80 FOW suspended anywhere 2-30'. Water temps still in the low 80's but the hot weather over the last couple weeks is driving it up.

Caught using metal...hooks....tipped with live shad and trolled over main lake points and in the cove bays. Another few weeks the water temps should hit upper 80's and they will start schooling up tight. That is when we start having success with spoons.

Nice catch.


Is it difficult to release those bigger stripers? Just curious because I have a tough time releasing wipers caught in 70 degree water.
