July has been great on Hortonia, however the lake association has applied it second application to kill the milfoil. It appears to be working much to my displeasure. The milfoil powderizes as you run a trolling motor through it. I have still been able to pull some nice largemouths and a few samller pike out of the thicker weeds. Many fish are being caught in open water between the larger weed clumps 6 to 10 ft. Some of the sharper drops are producing some very decent largemouths in the 12 to 15 foot range. The surface water temp varies from 78 to 82, even warmer in the shallower water.
