The fishing has been great for this week. All week long the water has been less than 2 ft and the weather has been unbelievably warm. The Perch seem to be in 42-47 ft of water and also in 50-55 ft of water. The Walleye are mostly South of the first Trench but boaters are catching them just about everywhere. These are just some of the people who caught Citation sized fish for Angler Awards.
