One of those summers? Man, this weather is starting to get really old. It was another one of those weeks for us. If you didnít fish in wind and rain, you didnít fish. Everyday except for Wednesday which was the gem of the week, the old wind just howled and howled out over the lake. The only saving grace was that it had a lot of south on it most days so tucking ourselves up close to the shoreline, we were still able to fish. Up till Friday where it went westerly and picked up to near gale levels. Even my big boy pants didnít help us any on Friday. There would be no fishing for us aboard THE TROPHY that day. Here is a interesting read about Fridays weather around the Great Lakes.

Again, the Walleyes did not care however. Even trying to pace myself and using only 6 rods, limits came fast and easily for us no matter what the conditions were. Feeling very blessed as far as that goes and itís making this lousy summer weather easier to take. Without the massive schools of Walleye being that close to the south shore, we might not have been able to pull off the limit catches daily that everyone is getting accustomed to now. I shudder to think how difficult it would have been to fish this past week if not impossible should the fish had been out 10-15 miles! Usually in the past, the rougher the weather the less rods we can run also. This year on many of the days out there thatís all we can handle because the fish are coming so quickly. Which perfectly coincides with the conditions that we keep getting handed!

So itís trying times we are living through right now up on the lake. We even had an earthquake that originated a few miles out in the lake this past week! I had numerous inquiries about it right afterwards from people that heard about it on the news. Iíve told everyone that I take full responsibility for the quake. Iíve removed so many Walleyes from the lake already this year that the water pressure has settled downward, hence setting off the earthquake! Haha! Actually, I think itís the other way around. There are sooooo many Walleyes out in the lake right now that itís displacing all the water and thatís why the lake is so dang high! Lol! Either way, thereís some goofy things going on this year up on the lake. From record water levels, record amount of fish and now a earthquake. I can hardly wait to see what this week brings us...
