I wouldn't call it "consistent" but once I figured how the wind had them positioned I figured a couple things out! Pitching and flipping a 1oz slither rig with a Rage Lobster on the slack side of r...

This launch has always been a bugger but man is it getting SKINNY! Lots of silt has settled in and it's not far from being impassable. Launched around 10am off at 2:30. Water temps were 53 to 57...

I stayed in Snohomish County as this was a very short, after work, kayak trip. No water temp but this little lake is stained water with decent vegetation and scattered wood cover. I came here exp...

This trip was a product of only having two hours to fish tonight. Also, since this lake closes for no reason tomorrow, I thought I would run a lap in the kayak. A bit of algae stain greeted me but ...

First things first, Bob, yes there is still an RV park at the north end of this lake. I can't remember if I answered that or not last time? Well, this place wasn't my original target tonight but t...

Had exactly four hours tonight. I'm going to try and hit a different lake after work every night this week. Just so I have a better idea of what to target on the weekends once we turn the clocks bac...

Missed one, caught one 2lber. Spent too much time on outside weed edges and not enough time pitching docks. Only had two hours and didn't get in the right depth until about 30 minutes to go. Defi...

Got a couple 4's and a few 3's this trip plus a smattering of 1-2.5's! Magic depth was 25', by 'magic' I mean everything over two pounds was in 25'. The smaller fish were shallower at about 20' a...

Caught some little guys on a drop shot but couldn't connect with anything decent. Fished out to 30 feet around pilings and up under docks in a foot, just loads of fingerlings running all over with my...

First one at the lake this morning as I continue to make the rounds to all of my local haunts now that I'm past the 2018 County Challenge. I tried topwater first as there were fish rising but prett...

I cannot honestly rate this report as I got the one I needed and left! However, I spent about two hours working pad areas looking for a topwater largemouth bite to no avail. Once I left that alone a...

Cool little pond, nice parking area, walking trail and decent gravel launch. The grass was a bit of a challenge and it's a great place to come practice weeding your trolling motor prop. I fished the...

I got pushed off Limerick by the shear number of ski boats on such a small lake, not fun in the Jon Boat. I decided to try Island Lake mainly because it was close and held "smallmouth" and largem...

I wish this boat launch didn't have the huge rocks around it! Makes launching something that's not on a trailer a bit of a pain. First time on this lake too and it sure looks good! I was surprised ...
