Storm threat kept me off the lake this morning. Decided to try the evening bite. Got emeralds from Anglers. Sherry is very nice, but please do not enter her property if the sign says closed - even if one of her slip renters leaves the gate open! Absolutely do not enter her store/home if the sign says closed. She almost shot a guy the other morning and he probably deserved it imo. Anyway, I perched from 4:30 to 7:30pm in 26 fow. Caught about 25 or 30 yellows with 15 over 8". Maybe a dozen sheep, 2 whites and a 30" cat. Green w 1/2 an emerald was best and oddly the biggest perch came several feet off the bottom. I only caught dinks and sheep on whole emeralds. One dink was maybe only an inch longer than the minnow. Ran a ways north and tried trolling harnesses in 20 to 18 fow from 8 till about 9pm. Got two smallish walleye - one on the bottom the other suspended (20' line & 3/4oz keel off board). Weeds were kind of bad. It was rough at first but laid down nice and was a beautiful evening on the lake. Some questions for you: I saw boats running thru the restricted area in front of fermi.....do they care? do they ever enforce the restricted area? On the way in I shined the SSP channel with my big beam and saw an unbelievable amount of bait ....about 2 or 3" long, silver, thin, blue gill shaped. Are these gizzard shad? or could they possibly be baby carp? I have seen a lot of bait in my life, but this was a stunning bait show. It reminded me of the old days with schools of alewives bouncing off my hull.
