The Libertyville Fishing Club held its 14th of 19 outings for 2017 at Fox
Lake in Dodge County, Wisconsin on Sept 9-10. 10 members fished the outing
with frustrating results. Yes, even the fishing club struggles at times.
We scored 4 northerns and 4 bluegills for about 100 man hours of fishing.
The weather was too clear with high barometric pressure and the lake was
pea green with an algae bloom. The lake is full of big fish of all species
but nothing would turn them on. The locals blamed the algae bloom, saying
it was the worst they had ever seen.
Lou won big fish with a 31 1/2 inch northern which hit a trolled Lucky Craft
Ghost minnow. Mike Hall got a pike on a zip lure, and Jeff Haug caught two
pike fishing suckers on a drop shot. We tried everything but there was no
pattern or bite at all.
We are looking forward to better results next time.
