Aug. 5th hit the lake with TEK at about 9:30am fished until about 4:30pm. We had a fun day, we hit a few spot on USA side then went over to Canada. Basstek was smoking me for a long time with his Lucky Craft lures. We got one on dropshot a few on tubes, but most came on crankbaits. Tek hasn't lost his touch fishing for Bass after hitting the Muskies for the last month. We had a few Muskies lurking around my boat giving us the evil eye.
Real calm in Canada, yet no bugs
was a fun day just for those two reasons. The highlight for me was, Tek was tieing on a lure when I had one small SM hooked on a crankbait, I got one I yelled. Then a bigger one hit the lure and got hooked, I got two I yelled. Then a third one came after it, I got three I yelled. But the third one knocked off the bigger one and the little SM jumped and tossed the lure, leaving me with none.
Basstek nevered looked up so missed the whole thing. He said all he knows, I said I got one, I got two, I got three and he saw zero come in the boat........

Thank you for the trip Fish Talker. I had a great time as always. How does someone have 3 fish on at the same time and land none lol.
I was surprised how good the Smallmouth fishing was, thought You said it's been slow. I think you just want me to keep Musky fishing and leave your Bass alone. Thanks for all my new spots.

Sounds like a pretty good trip. Thanks for the report.

Are you guys using lipless cranks or the deep diving lipped cranks? I always seem to find myself in water too deep for the lipped crank baits in my tackle box. With the lipped cranks isn't the idea to keep them banging off the bottom?

We caught a lot of smaller fish in 9' of water on 3/4oz. lipless crankbaits. Then we moved out to 19' foot of water and used tubes, drop shot and deep diving crank baits. The fish out deeper were much larger but we only got a few out deep. Good luck if You head out.
