    Fished in front of Fermi yesterday. 10 walleye, 2 shorts, 3 farm animals. It was rough and weedy. Had to use bottom bouncers off the side of the boat. No boards. Drifting at 1.5 mph in the slop. Pullin meat. Fish are still there, if ya can fish em. Thats my report. Good luck out there!

    To rough to stand and cast for this old guy, besides casting one rod or drifting two ...rather drift

    Was out there today started at 9. Ended catching 10 eyes. Kept 4 that were 18 to 21 inches. The depth of 23 fow with bandits 45 to 110 back 2.4 sog. Bite slowed when wind stopped midday. Later seemed smaller fish. Best bait picture took 5 of 10 eyes 4 were keepers although threw 2 of them back cause less than 18 inches.

    The winds did push the weeds out for today but by afternoon the direction changed so they will be back. Bay was somewhat green on way out but again wind pushed that away.

    Water temp 75.4 in front of fermi and 76.8 in bay.
