The lake level is 571.48 and has dropped a little less than 2-inches in the last 24-hours. We have received about 0.6 inches of rain in the last two days and it is raining very slowly now. The lake is getting more clear and the thermocline is still just past 21-feet and there is no mud line yet. The surface temperature is 89 not the 79 that I made the typo on yesterday. I would like to go diving but it is just too dark out now. It is to get hot on Wednesday and sunny with high pressure moving in after Barry the dud leaves. I do not like wind and we did not get any. Listening to the wind howl when you have a 160-ft. long dock with 20-boats in it is like waiting for your daughter to come home from a date and she is two hours late. Fishing is not the best except for the red meat fish in the early morning. The hybrids are coming up early and you can catch some stripers and walleye deep near the bottom later in 70-80 feet of water near the bottom. The trollers are catching some if they know what they are doing but the jigging spoon is the best lure. The shakey head plastic worm is still good for the bass in the brush on main lake points. Bluegill are biting well on crickets. Crappie fishing is slow except for under lights off docks after dark. Catfishing is picking up a bit but is not good again. Boating conditions are good with almost no debris in the water. Bass fishing after dark on saltcraws is pretty good. Blackburns still has cabins for $75/day and has some openings starting today. It was very busy last week. It is good to have so many repeat customers and we appreciate them.
