    Tried from shore again this morning for a couple hours. Southeast wind was stronger at sunrise than expected and shifted to a pretty strong south. No hits but water clarity was very poor beyond casting distance due to the high water and wind. Probably the last time out, but I have caught 'bows between Christmas and New Year's before.
  2. Not large, just 16.5". I typically would have released the fish, but it was hooked badly and bleeding.
  3. Fished from shore on the mornings of 11-16-21 and 12-5-21 for rainbows. No hits in three hours on the first trip. Yesterday produced two hits and one keeper. Both mornings were light winds. Hope to get out again.
  4. Not an expert on Otisco's eyes, but I do know they are alewife feeders. Lots of marks near the bottom along shore as well as some suspended fish adjacent to schools of bait. There were quite a few guys fishing just off shoreline on Saturday.
  5. Trolled Saturday morning in search of walleyes. Only landed a 27-inch catfish on a stickbait. Lots of marks but could not get them to hit. A few other guys out trolling as well.
  6. Yes, I have heard browns being caught in Skan, but I have never landed one. Glad you got into some fish. I will try again when the lake cools a down a bit.
  7. Launched out of State Ramp this morning and went south in search of RT and LLS. Never connected after 3 hours of trolling. Marked quite a few fish down 80-90 which were probably LT. Only a couple of marks higher. Water clarity is poor for Skan, which for me typically means poor fishing. Quite a few bass guys out. Surface temp was 65.
  8. Fished from 6:30 to 12:30 today. Good screens, but only managed a 32 inch tiger, a 17 inch smallmouth and a 23 inch catfish. Lost 4 fish. Quite a few guys trolling. Never saw a net move. Not much on the screen over the deep flats.
  9. Great rainbow. Glad somebody is getting out on Skan. Heavy rains have always slowed the fishing for me. Hope to get out soon. Any yes, Skan RT and LLS are very good table fair.
  10. Fished out of state launch from 5:45 to 9:45. 2 smallmouths, 1 laker and 1 undersize rainbow. Fair amount of perch fry 20 to 30 feet down on west side. All fish caught on riggers down 35 feet. A couple other guys trolling today too.
  11. Yes, both female and both had nicely formed egg sacs.
  12. The bullhead was released. Got a couple in October last year that I ate. Pretty good size and delicious table fair.

    Fished a couple hours this morning from shore. Only managed one large bullhead. A few light bites, but nothing substantial.
  14. Here are some caught in 2019. Much fatter.
