The lake level is 551.27 and has risen one inch in the last 24-hours with no generation. The water clarity is about the same and the surface temperature was 74.9 last evening. I went out about three PM and it rained steadily all the time I was out.  I caught fish early and they stopped biting about 5 PM so I came in.  I caught bass, crappie and bluegill and they all went in Tom Kelly's trophy pond. Nice ones too.  Tyler Peterson and Hunter are having fun catching bass and crappie. They are renting our Ranger bass boat and this is their first visit. Welcome to Blackburns. Another group is renting the Fisher bass boat but have been fishing much of the time and I have not talked to them. The weather is cool and tomorrow is to be the coldest day and it is to warm to the low 60's after that. Not too bad. It has been cloudy for three days. Again, not much is happening with the fall foliage. Bink is still catching fish of all species every day. I will keep watching to see if the walleye move to the flats and let you know. They might just move to the bank to feed at night with the stripers. There is not always a night striper bite in November. It depends on the shad and plankton. The walleye should be on main lake points in 20-ft. of water now but are not. Still a lot of fish in open water on shad part way back in the wind blown creeks in 35-45 feet of water suspended.
