    As predicted by that great climatologist, the water level has become very low. Water color pretty dark. Water temps really took a plummet with last week’s cold fronts, but are mid upper fifties mid lake, and 63-64 ish in the back bays.
    Weed growth stranger than ever. Not much around Verado Veranda, but I think the oil in the water permanently destroyed them there. Very little weed growth around, with one exception, and you should know where. Some other known areas void

    Danke.My worries/suspicions about weeds apparently coming true.I have plenty here and maybe should bring some.Mine are obnoxious not noxious so perhaps legal.
    I even have pigweed,that would seem good in a musky context.

    Have fun. Look out for falling tree tops if the tornado rolls through. Don't stand under Sully's porch!

    Hi Tim!Still lousy.Wind n rain.Haven't wet a line yet.Also dealing with adjusters,contractors,etc due to 'conditions' at home in SoDak.Either 70 mile straight line winds or a tornado did extensive damage to our home and assorted buildings there.Crap.

    Sheesh. Bad luck. Hope your summer gets better soon. I predict a hump of water behind your topraider might help distract you from pesky builders and loss adjusters.

    Great opener!

    If my morning is an indication,it will be 'lights out' today as well.

    Still good.Slower yesterday(air temp 49 in early AM and a channel near camp had a surface temp of 56.8)but think most boats had at least one.It's all about weather-especially early season.I have 7 fish on 8s since saturday-what if I knew how to do it-or could hang on to all the dumb ones that hit???Scary thought.

    Frank just stopped by,sounds like one of the Brainerd guys got the first 50 since the Opener.Congrats to him!
    Should add today was the first day air temps hit 70 since I arrived.The 50 makes sense I guess.However,I can see dark clouds to the NW over the 3 foot rollers and the high tomorrow is 59.Likely a short rampage of 50s.

    Feels so good to take away Sullys fish.From a spot he likes so well.Is that wrong?

    DP, I want to preface the statement below is I am acting as the messenger. However, I do support my LOTW partner in all his endeavors.

    Dear Dick due to my inability to login I've asked Mr. Ruhmann to assist. Remember when I had you figure 8ing for five minutes. The fish was long gone. Ha ha ha your friend-Sully

    Fished out of Bell Island outpost 7/1-7/8 . Had a pretty decent trip although we didn't get any tankers to come out and play! Landed 8 muskies for the trip with little actual muskie fishing time. Spent most of the week wrangling my 2.5 and 5 year olds. My 5 year old caught his 1st muskie trolling with Papa which was pretty awesome.

    Pretty sure I saw Dick & the batmobile a couple different times fishing some of my favorite weedy spots! I was the guy in the white Navigator usually untangling the kids lines! We had our best luck with small cranks and gliders...water temps were as low as 64 early in the week and settled around 68-71 by 7/7.

    Hi Tim!
    Weird describes it.Water temps now in low to mid 70s,sunny,calm and HOT yesterday but about mid morning the big pike show up shallow and remained aggressive til dusk???U Brits would be happy with that!
    Average success in terms of numbers,behind on 'Biggies'.Started cold,low water,then rains n rising water,fish and fishermen confused.

    Sounds like the story this year. I was speaking to a friend in southern Ontario and he was saying the same thing, though the rainfall has been excessive this summer.
