Default Diversey update

I hit Diversey again on Saturday,3/25, for round two. The action was not as good as last weekend but still pretty decent. Fished from 6:30am to 9:30am. Between intermittant sprinkles I managed to land a nice eater brown of 18". Lost an estimated 4lb steelie right at the wall and another unidentified salmonid later. Had 6 hits in all. What worked and what didn't?

1. $ 2.75/ dozen nightcrawlers -zip
2. Chubs (or whatever those smelt like biatfish you catch while perch fishing)- zip
3. Tinsel jigs tipped with cut bait- 6 hits, 2 lost , 1 landed

It pays to vary your baits and presentation. Had to fork over $ 6.00 for parking, but I was the only one fishing the south side outside the mouth.
Next time I may park on Cannon and hike 10-15 minutes.

Default 4/1

The fishing has headed downhill. Spent about 2.5 hours offering a variety of baits on the south side again and got SKUNKED. I did get two hits on the tipped tinsel jigs and two hits on nightcrawlers. Saw one fellow catch one on a spoon. It might be time to change spots.
