    We reflected on everything that happened on the way home and if we knew then what we know now we would have fished much different. We still had a great time and seen some great fish. Glad to hear you got into them again and thank you so much for all the advice and tips, we will be going back maybe next year to give it another try. We fished our home lake yesterday and never even had a follow so we had it pretty darn good up there. Stay in touch and again thanks for all the advice and fishing tips. BTW did you ever see her? Hope so.

    BTW I bought the Lexa when we came home and used it yesterday, I really think it will be a keeper so again thanks for that tip also.

    As far as locations go fish were relating to Reefs/Rock's more than weeds. Current breaks were a big influence in where fish were. Bring your "A" game for figuring 8'ing. 9 of the 11 fish I caught were caught boat side. Some of the fish were pretty boat shy. I was able to overcome this by amending my figure 8 to go down and away from the boat as it came in rather than a traditional "L" turn. This move helped me convert some fish. Chop up the lake into pieces. I never went north of the Lodge the first day I fished and I did not go to the east side untilt he 3rd days I was there. Learn the lake. I had a hell of a milk run by the last few days and it really resulted in a lot of fish caught and opportunities to catch.

    We started out fishing the outsides of weed beds in the bays, what we learned from Tim and kinda figured out late in our trip is that there are musky's in the outsides of weed beds but the bigger fish are around rocks and reefs. If you want to just see numbers then fish the outside weedbeds but if you want to catch the bigger girls then focus on the reefs. We seen a bunch of fish following but had a very tough time getting them to hit. Most of them followed to the boat before either turning off or hitting. We fished mainly in the south end of the west lake because the water on the north end was really green. It is suppose to get very cool up there this week so if I were headed up I would be looking for them in shallow weedbeds or shallow reef area's. Good luck and let us know how it goes. BTW we focused mainly on bucktails but did have some luck with cranks to. Click image for larger version.

ID:	1393 This was our largest fish caught by my fishing partner in a bay weedline. Fish hard and stay out as much as possible because they will move all day up there at least that's what we seen.
