Walleye have moved to the fall spots. Mud channels in 18-20' of water.
Crappie have not really gotten going. Still catching some on sunken trees, and an occasional one in the elbow.
Northern pike have been normal. Not a ton of small ones in Obabikon lake, but the big ones are pretty aggressive in the main lake.
Musky are on all structures, but are starting to move to the secondary rocks 6' deep or so.

Fished the last week of August our of Miley's Place. The winds were strong and relentless everyday except Friday out of the south and west. Heavy rain one day with some thunder but otherwise the precip was very manageable. On to the fishing...
Walleyes-we caught quite a few numbers wise but they were mostly all on the small size. We managed one 26" fish, one 19" fish and enough 17" fish to make our limit of 8. We fished Miles Bay mostly but did fish Sabaskong bay one day due to the winds. It was tough to find active fish of any size in Sabaskong and consequently nearly all of the fish we caught were out of Miles Bay. We found them in anywhere from 16 fow to 28 fow in bays with muddy bottoms. We did find some off a wind swept point in 30-33 fow. Gold spinners or Lindy Lil' Guys outfished jigs for us. We used both nightcrawlers and minnows without noticing any appreciable difference.
Pike-very hard to come by. Caught one 24" fish walleye fishing and casted for them for an hour or two each day with only one strike. Finally went up into Obabikon and was able to scratch out a dozen on silver minnows and spinner baits. No size to them. The musky fishermen we talked to also said that they were hardly seeing any pike.
Smallmouth-only casted the rubble along shorelines once or twice and picked up two but no size. We picked up a couple more fishing walleyes and probably should have been fishing reefs but we weren't interested in catching them using those methods.
Musky-didn't fish for them but my buddy had roughly a 40" fish come up and check out the chrome spatula he was cleaning after shore lunch one day. Apparently a chrome spatula with a brillo pad trailer was the ticket to move musky that week. LOL
Crappie/Perch-did not target these species specifically but were happy that we stumbled across a few of size to take home while we were walleye fishing. Got one nice 14" crappie on a Lil' Guy while walleye fishing.
After talking with a couple locals at the dock Friday night they said they had similar walleye fishing for the week. Sounds like they are in transition.
Not my best week up there but I would go back tomorrow if I had the opportunity. It doesn't always have to be about the fishing.

|FishinFreaks||Up just east of Morson now. We're on the west side of Blueberry. Fishing is slow. We went out west of town yesterday and all the way out to Tods Island. No keeper walleye for us. Moved one musky. Talked to a couple guys that boated 2 muskies yesterday. Said it was slow overall as well. We've been jigging for walleyes. Might try spinners today.|

How was the trip last week? Hope you did well.
What can/should we expect in 2 weeks? Is the crappie bite starting yet, or that still a few weeks out yet? Are the big perch still roaming around? Where have they come from? We used to catch a few here and there, but now it seems like they are everywhere.

L.O.W. in/around Morson area
The bloom does nothing to affect fishing. Although I might add that follows are hard to detect follows with a big bloom. The wind moves the bloom around a lot. If you donít like it, fish on the side away from the bloom.

|Obabikon||The guides avoid it more for preference than they do because they dont' catch fish in it. Thick green stuff just isn't as pretty to look at. Musky fishermen do go look for clearer water. That's the nice thing about having such an expansive lake. You can always go for a 10-15 minute boat ride, and find completely new water.|
