Not much at The Glen

Postby crankybass » Jul Sat 06, 2019 5:53 pm

I went out for a couple of hours last week in the evening, on July 3rd, with a swim jig, a frog, and a Wacky Rig. Fished and caught nada. I know guys have been catching skinny Walleyes, but I didn't have the right stuff for that. Anyway, the carp were still spawning, the water was muddy and pea soup color, and the level was down. I think that Lake Glenview is not worth the effort anymore, which is a drag because I can do a quick run to it in the evening. I may give it one more shot in the fall.

I agree, it used to working for me but now not so much.

Went there like 6/30 and tossed my green senko into all my likely spots and nada.

Ran into a Russian? guy tossing a frog. Nothing lately for him either. He said his buddies only caught Walleye on live bait.

So I think I'm done there too. :cry:

I've been done there since I got that hook in my finger 2 years ago :lol:

Too hard to have success out there on shore. it's so shallow so far out that by the time you get to any decent drop off your retrieve is already over.

Cranky, as you know it's close for me, too and it's always in my consideration list, but I have no confidence there. Maybe I'll give it one shot before the summer is over. I'll keep my expectations low.

My best buddy used to fish there from time-to-time. Says it went to shit & gave up on it.
Keep calm and fish on...

There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid
