    C606ACA1-49EF-46C2-A395-27FA8FB27668.jpeg Fished the dumping grounds out of Bolles Harbor today and did pretty good. Morning started out with light west winds and a nice one foot chop. Fish were real high in the water column and we caught most of them on Perfect 10’s 45-60 ft behind boards. That’s putting them down about 5-8ft. After losing first fish of the morning by netting the hooks inside the net with the 4lb Walleye flopping on the outside of the net and you know that’s not good lol. We ended with 11 nice fish. A Domka custom perfect 10 called Toxic Melon took 6 fish today and has been hot for a while now. See pic. Great day to be out though but you know the old saying: It’s all fun and games until someone loses a Walleye. At least it wasn’t me this time lol C606ACA1-49EF-46C2-A395-27FA8FB27668.jpeg 4D148B75-D15E-4987-88AF-E6F08CD9A11C.jpeg D0B4F330-6A49-4066-BED5-9A3587C68C85.jpeg

    For years I fished the bottom 5' of water. The top 8 is proof they can be aanywhere! Nice looking fish.

    We stayed in Brest Bay and the fish were high there also. All caught with leads of 15 to 25ft behind the boards. Only 2 on dot bandit the rest on a ddhj. Also Ron popped a steelie off stoney. It put on a aerial show, cant believe we landed it as the board was so close though for sure it would come unpinned. Depth was 14 to 16fow. It got quite bumpy midday but fished turned on.

    Great report, thanks. I’ll hafta put the P10’s back in the boat! 4 of our 6 came on very bright colored Bandits or RR 44 Mags, 15 feet behind the board. You guys did very well, congrats.

    Holy smokes, you could practically net the fish without even taking the board off.

    Thanks for that report. I should have went there - don’t know where it’s it tho. I got skunked between DTE and Fermi. Another lesson learned - don’t make your turn arounds too sharp. What a mess.
