sounds like our experience was much the same as others, My Son caught our only catfish, we did pretty well on walleye and mixed in some bluegill perch and bass.

JJ.....you needed to head up river. We did chat a bit Monday. You had the red Lund?

Anyways...we picked up a 5 # cat in the flats. A ten # and a couple of smaller were caught there as well. Water temps at two feet were 71 degrees. Up at the island on the river it was 66.

JJ....we were in the olive colored johnboat. We passed by you Monday and asked how you were doing. Didn't see your camper that morning so I wasn't sure if that was you. Ill be back up at the end of the month. The old timers there said the water was too cold still.
