Nice work! Good to see some people hitting them in good numbers still. Also good to read reports without all the drama......





Feel free to pm if you don't want it public, but I was wondering what technique/presentation was best this morning. Also, are you fishing a rocky or weedy area. I don't need your spot, just trying to pattern the fish as I have been hit-or-miss lately.

Thanks, and keep the reports coming!

Somebody's doing something right!

July's shaping up to be a banner month for the juveniles allowed to fish. Too bad the lake is a couple weeks behind this year in warming. up.

****....I got there a little late this morning..at about 6ish. Elbow to elbow on the Montrose south rocks this morning! Saw very few fish caught. Bite was completely off.

I got one....ONE perch....and he was only 6". Needless to say, I am a little annoyed. This is what happens when ya hit the snooze button.

Also...why is Henry's selling live rusty crayfish????

Where did you hear that? They shouldn't be. That's why crayfish at bait stores are usually sold 100% dead. So there can be no mistakes.

Well to start off, NEVER just try one bait. Today me and my buddy started with softshells and spinners. The bite was on but no jumbos. Dinks were on it like white on rice. Then I switched to shadrap with a couple nice keepers. My buddy also caught a few, until he constantly kept gettin snagged lost one and got ticked off. All of a sudden bites slowed down terribly for about 30 mins. Jumped right on flukes after the bite slowed down. Flukes completed our limits with a couple jumbos. We actually stayed just to fish for fun. My buddy caught wayy over his limit today but just kept tossin them back (including jumbos). I notice to not get frustrated when you fish. If you catch nothing for the day then oh well, there is always next time.

Now for retrieval, my technique is to let it sink to the floor after the cast. Simply jerk it 2-3 times and then pause and wait for the VERY LIGHT hit. Alot of people expect a hard hit, but remember this isn't stripers or bass. Try not to keep too much slack on your line or you might not be able to set the hook good enough. Use VERY light line with an UL rod. I use fireline 4# test and a 5' St Croix UL moderate action rod.

Now go out tomorrow and try it out. Hopefully this helps!

CHOW!

I'm not sure how he was doing this, but be careful. He can catch and release if he has less than 15 in his possession. But if he has 15 and continues to fish, he can be ticketed.
