Managed to squeeze in a quick trip to try Fox Lake for the first time. 

Beautiful property. Arrived at dawn and started with a frog given the aquatic weeds rimming the entire tank. Caught three before 8AM and then the bite quit (bluebird day with bright sun and very little wind). 1st fish was a feisty 18" (see pic) caught just before sunrise. This was followed by a dink and then a nice 16" before the sun got much above the horizon. Then nothing the rest of the morning. Tried every lure in the book including punching big worms and zcraws, wacky and trig senkos, flukes, chatterbaits with a paddletail, spinnerbait, popper, and underspin. I had a great time none the less!

Water down ~8ft.

Water clarity 3-4'

Heavy aquatic weeds at the surface rimming the entire tank from the bank out to 8 - 16'. South and north ends of the tank locally have even more extensive weed coverage. Bring a trolling motor with a propeller that can handle this stuff!

Till next time,
