Default The ditch

The ditch was hot the last 3 days giving up liimts of jumbos all three days Two days in water less than 10 foot and with no live bait . And yes Ace him self was there with a boat load of customers . Saturday all fish came from deeper water and on minnows . All three day saw extreme fishing pressure. So I went east yeasterday to check out some spots that where just as good or better . Thinks are just starting to get hot cant wait for more south winds .

I believe it's in reference to Burns Ditch, which ia a man made watershed outflow into the lake by Burns Harbor...

I was thinking he meant Black Ditch out of Michigan City, IN. It is near Dune Acres and always a consistent Perch producer when they descend upon the southern tip of the lake.

Back out this morning at day light ,banged 10 fish right of the bat . then nothing , worked the out side of the boat packout side the mouth of the ditch with only a couple of dinks to show for my efforts .Went east to dunes state park and worked the edge of 25-35ft water and added 3 to my total . Headed for the lanch ramp and got loaded by 11:30 am ,got home and put Buckin Fin away and the skys came unglued . I wonder how many boaters got beat up by those nasty storms ?

Tough day yesterday only 6 keepers . Worked the are out front of the state park with everyone else but no takers . So back to ditch after checking out some other spots . Other than all the boat traffic due to the air show wasnt a bad day after the wind switched frpm the north AND THE BITE WAS DONE . Hoping the weather change will do the lake some good .
