I just had to get back to Jackson after seeing the post from last night.I had planned to go down to Spinney and stop at Jefferson on the way back but the wipers were calling me!I belive i made the right decision!Got there at11:30 and headed twards the inlet.Caught two wipers on my way down to the inlet and had pretty much nonstop action for the next two hours.I was in 5 to 8 feet of water trolling,would you believe,a 3/8oz cutthroat kastmaster and a small floating silver rapala.Had 15 (all but 3 were 15+inches)by 4pm.Headed back to the dock to take care of some business and headed back down to the inlet.Ended up catching 6 more wipers and one small trout.I cant believe how much i spent on rat-l-traps and shadraps when my trusty(#1in my book)kastmaster was all i needed.Caught 90% on it!It was to shallow for the rat-l-traps and Shadraps.Killer day! lyn

Great job. I had the feeling that most anything sparkly or bright would work -- glad to see you had a good day fishing!

I like the last sentence from the DOW report for Jackson, it says:

"The inlet is no longer productive." ::)

A buddy and I fished it today as well from (9:45 am to 1:45 pm). We ended up with 18 legal wipers and threw back another 6-8 undersized ones. Non-stop wiper action the entire time we were there. Trolling off of the inlet over 8-10 ft. of water. We had our luck on primarily silver and blue rat-l-traps. However, they were not too picky. Trout seemed to have slowed down or moved to deeper water. We caught one 17" rainbow and lost a couple of others. Nothing like it has been. Probably the warmer water has them going deeper then the wipers. Lynmack - we probably passed each other a couple of times.

Wipers for dinner tomorrow!

Thats crazy!!! they must have a secret agenda!DO you think they worrie about it getting over fished?I let all mine go!They also stocked 4000 trout when i was launching my boat.I use to really believe those reports but that was the final straw!I guess IITV has alot of merit to what he says.

FF,

So you started a bit earlier this time and still had good luck... Any idea what the water temp was today?

Work2Fish,

Due to a prior committment to my 6-year old's little league team, I had to start earlier then I would have liked. However, it did not seem to matter. We had hot wiper action the entire time we were there. The hottest action was still between 12:00 and 1:30 pm. It was tough quitting at that point, but family committments come first (also we had already had one hell of a day). Do not know the exact water temperature, but it did feel warmer to the touch then it did a week ago (maybe someone else knows?).

Dan,

I think this bite should continue for a couple more weeks as long as the lake does not turn green (algae blooms) as someone mentioned in an earlier report. I think they said it happened last year in the middle of the June. Hopefully, with lake being at full capacity, it would delay any such occurrences. Does anyone know about this? I paid special attention to the boat launch conditions for you, and do not think you would have any problem launching with your car.

Here is a picture of the nine wiper that I brought home.
