Simply stunning weather ! This past weeks weather may have been the nicest stretch of weather of this whole summer. What a late summer beauty of just picture perfect days all week long. Itís been a long time since I have seen the off shore forecast so tame for so many days in a row this time of year. Right from the start last Monday, they were calling for 1 foot or less all week. For the most part, they finally got it right !

Fishing for the most part was very good for us and a lots of the others all week long as well. We did get a bit of a reality check however a couple of days aboard ďThe TrophyĒ where we did not completely limit out. Such is fishing and I knew it was coming one of these weeks for us. You just canít fish that many days in a row as we have and keep batting a thousand forever. Fishing is fishing. Still though, everyone went home with more then enough fish for a very Ďbangin fish fry.

And yet a few days this past week were still real ĎburnĒ days where we went as fast as we could possibly go once again. I just donít get it. Itís very weird out there right now. Where you kill them one day, the next day might be very slow. I canít help but feel that the fish are on the move once again. For a while I felt they were moving east big time out there even though they were still way offshore. But now Iím not quite so sure of even that. Weíll see what this week brings. Iím thinking of trying a couple of closer spots to see what happens. Iím plain getting burned out making these ridiculously long runs back and fourth. There just has to be some fish closer to home.

So this one will be a shorter one. I can hardly keep my eyes open as it is here on this Saturday evening typing this all up. Just enjoy these pictures from our best catches of this past week. I think the days of completely full racks of fish day in and day out everyday now are really numbered. If it all ended tomorrow, itís still been a insanely good run that we had at them. I donít think it will but perhaps this is the beginning of the tail end of our great summer fishing. Or at least, the real easy fishing. You know what they say... ďall good things must come to an endĒ After all, next weekend is SEPTEMBER already. YIKES ! So thatís it for another week. Check back again next week.

*I am reminding all of my upcoming trips that we REALLY need to get off of the dock by 5:00am. These central basin big Walleyes in this real clear water are really squirrely and 90% of the time they feed like crazy right at dawn and then it drops off dramatically with each passing hour. WE DO NOT WANT TO MISS OUT ON THIS OPPORTUNITY if you want to catch a nice load ! Itís really just that simple. Also please MAKE SURE that you have your fishing license ahead of time before arriving in the morning. There are no provisions for licenses at the marina.
