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.
