I'm sure I've said this before about the TFF. A tough day on the TFF can be the equivalent to a good day on a lot of bodies of water. I fished with two groups today ,I do enjoy providing a family fish fry, in the morning we caught enough for a fish fry for the three fisherman in the boat and their wives back at the cabin and in the afternoon for a group of seven friends. The walleyes had to be worked for, we fished deep wood on the edge of breaks and river channels, in the afternoon we did fish a couple of cribs. Fifteen or twenty years ago the TFF to my recollection didn't have as diverse a fishery as it does currently. Today I cleaned 47fish for the two groups, 12 walleyes the rest crappies, perch, and blue gills. Most of the fish were caught from deep wood with 1/8 oz. jigs and 1/2 crawlers.

 

 

 

Start bringing your warm clothes, I'm hoping for a lot of warm weather yet but Tuesday with the north wind, I wore two jackets until noon. Those cold fronts have triggered some bigger fish we caught and released a 22" walleye that day, the seven walleyes we kept that were on the smaller side.

 JEFF ROBL, FISHING REPORT - 8/11/14

 

Conditions: Sunny Air Temp: 76° - 80º F Water Temp: 71° - 75° F

 

The fishing has been good/very good most days even the flat water and bright sky days have been yielding good catches of fish. The first week in August seems to be the most popular week for family vacations. I have enjoyed many days with kids in the boat the last week and a half. Fishing mostly deeper wood and rock structure in 10-18'. For most bodies of water flat water hot weather and sunny skies can make for some difficult walleye fishing, working the right structure on the TFF will produce fish even on these days. The smallmouth have been very active with a lot of bigger fish being caught on the same structure as the walleyes. Have also had nice perch and blue gills mixed in with the walleye and smallmouth. I like to make a point of posting my toughest fishing day which was in fact this morning. Steady rain, nice chop I thought Mike and I would make quick work of a limit of walleyes. After a morning of fishing we had two walleyes, a perch and a 16" sm in the live well, we did release small walleyes and sm. Some days you get on the fish in the first few spots other days it takes a while to dial in on them, in a half day trip I can teach customers what to look for and how to catch them but sometimes it takes a full day to accumulate a live well full of fish. Some of the recent trips can best be shown in pictures, here are some photos. I've had a great time fishing with everyone who has shared a seat in my boat.

 

Thank You.
