10/6 thru 10/8, 2007

Late post. Been too busy studying, working, and fishing on the side.

I was up in da woodz for probably the final time in 2007. It was a crappy trip, but was good to finally get away and not worry about school and crap like that.

It was a very hot weekend, both days pushing mid-80's in air temps. In result, the water temps were warm everywhere we fished, ranging anywhere from 60-64degs, which is early-summer conditions. This weird weather probably led to the poor fishing I experienced this weekend. Besides the weird water temps, the fall colors were almost non-existent. It was ugly and nothing like usual.


one of my lakes.


my river.

Three lakes and a river were fished. I made three Musky outings, two at lake, and other at river. I was skunked this weekend for them, but I encountered one which was lost near boatside - about 25", very skinny. It flipped out on me at the surface and somehow frayed the leader because on the following cast, my Llungen DC-8 goes flying 100-yards out into the lake. NOT COOL!



When not dicking around with the Muskellunge and fish of that nature, I messed around for a bit on the backyard lake and was catching the usual 14-18" Bass and crappies. This usually ends up getting boring.

This was pretty much the extent of this trip. I did some hard fishing and was not rewarded with anything in return..... Despite the good regional reports I was getting.

It was a pretty good 2007 season in WI. I should be back fishing for the same amounts again in '08.

Now I've got my backyard river Walleyes to look forward to!

The weather has been weird the last couple of days but hey that's what happens when you go fishing right? I had many, many days like this before and I know that it sucks. Where do you go to school? I hope you have some better luck next year. :( :x :roll: :wink:

Thanks for the report Andrew. I'm sure that you were still glad to be out there though. I know that I would.
