Not much has changed here. It is hot but the storms have gone north of us so far. They quit generating for several hours last night for some reason but have started up again. The level is now at 560.57 and I can deal with that but it needs to be at 552 to create some surge capacity. I went diving for a bit and got my two walleye early this morning for opening day.  Visibility is not the best but good enough to get fish.  Many of them are on brush at 20-ft. Good to get under water again. Many times better than last year.  Blackburns has a dive boat for you to rent and a very nice dive shop 1/2 mile away. I will help you as to where to go. Fishing is still pretty good with red meat fish going deeper in 50-60 ft. and most everything else at the thermocline at 20-ft. Some large bass are a little deeper with the smaller ones shallower. Walleye are pretty much everywhere there is brush in the 20-ft. range and bait fish are present. The lake in general is in excellent condition. Blackburns still has cabins for $75/day for two people with no duplexes and all have covered porches. First normal sized boat stall is free as are trolling motors on pontoons. Come on down and let the children get in the big pool with slide. They will like it. Why pay more?
