    Better late than never… Brest Bay, 1100, SOG 1.4-1.8, pullin meat, bouncers with planer boards, north of the pack cuz i dont care to fish in crowds, 18’-20’.

    1 man limit, for whatever reason my buddies side couldnt buy a walleye. Being the nice guy that i am i did let him reel one of my rods in, hoping to get the curse off his side, but it didnt work. We tried, switched colors, switched weights, & line back, but one of those weird days where one side was hot & the other was not. That being said, i wont count it as a limit for myself because im honest & fair. No color was really hotter than the other, but i did have one doin quite a bit of damage. Wish i could remember what it was, but was reelin it in after a pullback & the beads, blade, & hooks were gone! Dont kno what took it, but im bettin it was the Lake Erie Loch Ness. Damn near dragged the lips off a couple small perch, sometimes u cant tell when u got them small fish on. Silvers & other “non-desirables” were surprisingly minimal. Still quite a bit of debris, but i didnt think it was too bad. Real nice day, pretty dang calm for Erie, unsual for the days that i actually get to go out.

    Side note, drifted on 5-15-18 in about 14’-16’ & got 7 between 3 of us along with quite a mixed bag, buddy got a real nice smallie.

    What was the water color like? A guy in camp went out today and said the bay was chocolate milk. He didn’t touch a fish. He also said the dead heads were bad. The Raisin River was an obstacle course.

    On thurs water color wasnt bad, & there was a bit of debris but not terrible. Fri i did go upstream the River Raisin on the westside of Monroe, & the water was quite high & flowin pretty strong. I kno with that wind yesterday & rain today the bay will b really stirred up with alot of debris.
    That bein said, im plannin to head out tomoro late afternoon-evenin time. I’d imagine itll still b chocolate milk, but hopefully clearin up a bit. I’ll post when i hit the water to let everyone kno what it looks like, but im sure there will b some guys out earlier than me.
