On lake at 11 AM on Thursday and 7ish on Friday. Fished in 70-113 FOW both days. Six lines out, multiple offerings at multiple depths. Marked lots of fish but none were biting. Top water temp was at 72 degrees even out at 113 FOW. Beautiful 2 days out on the lake with my oldest son though.

Sorry to hear about the fish but thank you for the report. Reporting skunks are the toughest ones to post.

Thanks for the report!

The surface temp is pretty much the same all over, just have to find that thermocline. What were your presentations? Probably need most baits below 50 FOW, possibly below 70 FOW. It depends on where that thermocline is and its been inconsistent that past week from what I hear.

Late reply. Thermoline looked to be down at 75 FOW. I did wonder if we were getting down deep enough. Set 2 dipsy divers down as far as we could get them and had 5 and 6 color lead lines out with extra weights on them that may have been down to 50-60. Two flat lines with weights were probably only down to 40 FOW. Should probably setup some copper lines next time.
