This is a pic of the algae filled lake that I fished in. Usually it's a nice lake but with all of the high heat we had the algae bloomed and killed a lot of the Walleye that were present. Sad, because you can't keep any Walleye from this lake as it's catch and release only.
couple of weeks ago…….I fished my local river. Its a tidal river far enough north from the salt water bay to be considered brackish. Launched my boat at the peak of high tide and headed about 3 miles south to an area that “was” productive last year. Two hours there on weed lines and a bridge basin and only managed one little Striper. (approximately 16 inches). Decided to run north about 6 miles and hit a creek mouth I haven’t fished much. I got on the trolling motor and spent the next hour following the weed line to north of that creek. Picked up about 4 little guys……Went about 2 miles further north and fished another weed line. came up on a parking lot sized eddy cutting into a marsh. Picked up dozens of fish to 30 inches. They just kept biting……They were sitting on this shallow eddy. I fished it down to the last hour of moving tide…..then it just turned off. There was a nearby creek I knew of that runs up to an area with a low bridge that you need the tide to be mostly out to get under. It opens up to lake like salt marsh. I started heading up that creek and as I got closer I saw dozens of surface swirls. I killed the outboard and dumped in the trolling motor and went to the other side. I switched to anchor mode and started casting under the bridge. Spent the last hour of the tide hauling in dozens more 20-30 inch Striper.
