Giving this report a 4. Could have been a 5 based on vastly exceeding expectations. Blazing hot, nobody fishing and the reports I heard were discouraging.
Picked up a couple of Walleye, one around 5 pounds the other half that big. A couple of decent catfish(bullheads) and one nice 12 inch crappie. Out about 3 hours, fished in the dunes near crab creek. Fishing a slow death in shallow water along the weed beds.

Good job. I don't fish again until late August but maybe need to rethink that.

Many times it’s better to be lucky than good. My guess is that I was just lucky. I’m good with that.

Gotta hand it to you for surviving the heat. I agree with Bullpine and will wait until things cool off. How were the bullheads? They taste fine late in the fall, but I am curious if the warmer temps make any difference. How green or murky is the water now?

It’s not as slimy now as it will be in a month. My brother in law loves the bullheads. I haven’t heard how they tasted. I feel doubly lucky since the day I fished was low 90’s. This week over 100! Too much! Might need to try the night fishing. I also saw plenty of largemouth bass feeding in the weed beds. Good time to pitch a frog.

Had a day like that on Potholes about 10 years ago. 112 degrees and I caught the biggest walleye of my life, 26 inches, along with 2 others that were just under the 22 inch mark. Some times being stubborn pays off.
