Was on Whitefish at Foley's Bar a couple of times last week. (8/1)
Had to drag skiers and tubers during the day, and fished at night, which was fine. West side of Foley's with planer boards, and a variety of weights.(1oz, 2oz., and 3oz.) Fish were seen in 50-60 ft. depths at around the 45 to 35 ft. level. Trolled rapalas and the like, in a a variety of colors, mostly chartreuse and black/silver. Biggest caught was 4 lb. A couple of others in the 2 lb. class. Also caught one Crappy of decent size on the north shore, still west side of Foley's bar.
Also tried Cross Lake, got nothing. Only observed fish laying on the bottom, none suspended or shallow during the one evening I tried Cross.
Didn't get the opportunity to fish during the day-- maybe next month!
People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
