    Nice pics JimG.... Had the same type of May with lots of rain & higher water but healthy hatches which should make for a nice summer.

    *Will see what pics I took May-June...will upload later...

    Got out on the East Branch Friday 6/28 with my youngest son James. Fishing was better than a week previous but not great. Lot's of fun though we caught about a dozen 1.5-2 pound largemouths. All of them were plenty fat:

    Best part of the day was early on about 45 minutes after we shoved off. I spotted a carp wallowing near shore on the first island and told James to cast over to it. It was his best cast of the day as he dropped his worm right on top of the fish. Even more amazing was that he snagged it on its' dorsal fin (which I have seen happen several times before with other fishermen). A 10 minute battle ensued until James tired the fish out enough to get it along side the boat. This was an enormous carp, easily 25 pounds. I think we were both a little astounded and our momentary admiration gave the carp the last opportunity to thrash and get off the hook. Just as well, what a fight!

    Hot and humid yesterday 7/5. With Mike and Karl in the boat rowing was an amazing workout. Sweated buckets and drank a lot of water.

    Fishing was good. A real pan fish fest. I caught a dozen bluegills, 6 decent white perch and a few yellow perch. Mike caught a half dozen 1-2 lb. largemouths. Karl caught some pan fish too and hooked his first good sized smallmouth. I was disappointed I did not hook any bass until I caught this very nice smallmouth at the end of the day:

    Worth the work.

    Hit Rye Lake about 3:30 7/12. Not only was it hot and humid there was also a strong NW wind to deal with. Whitecaps forced us to take a perpendicular tack and we wound up at a southeast facing cove with about 300 yards of great looking shoreline; lots of rocks, boulders and deep water access. Nice and shady too. We rowed down to the end of the cove and let the nice breeze blow us back along the cove.

    We immediately started catching bass both large and smallmouths. Several were good sized. When we got to the end of the cove we rowed back against the breeze and repeated the same drift. And we caught a few more bass. Rinse and repeat. Stayed in the same spot for the next 4 hours. The bass were super healthy:

    We headed to a few other spots on the way back and caught nothing. At least the wind was now in our favor. Got back to the boat spot at 8:30. Awesome when you find where all the fish are biting.
