Got out on Chautauquua and cruised around the north basin on Saturday May 2nd. Saw very little if any new weed growth thus far. Water temps we saw ranged from 49 to 53 degrees. Water clatity was nice but not as clear as I expected for this time of year. Lots of Crappie being caught in the canals. We did a couple hour walleye troll from 9:30 till 11:30 saturday evening. Picked up one 24 incher in about 7 feet of water trolling over a rock bottom area.

Still a couple months till we can start fishing muskies on Chautauqua Lake. Weather is warming and things are just starting to melt....Can't wait! These two photos I attatched are of a friend, client and great artist! Mike caught this fish last season and did a mount for himself amazing work. Contact me at mcfishnguides.com if you have any desires to get a replica done. Mike does top notch work and I can get you in touch with him!

Went out about a week ago, ice fishing, shallow flat 5ft, triple and double rigged ice jigs tipped with wax worms for yellow perch. Caught about twenty in about three hours between two guys, pretty slow for  Chautauqua lake. Need to find more weeds or different bait. Ice is between ten and twelve inches thick. Looks good for the rest of the season.
