    Fished with New Hudson Walt and Amos (Dan) this morning. Made a short drift in front of coast guard east of Belle isle. Dan picked up two and we decided to move up river. Water was very dirty close to Canadian shore but clarity improved somewhat in the channel. We immediately started getting fish and had our Canadian limit by 9 am then played catch and release till the bite slowed down . Best baits we're chartreuse jig / brown ww, antifreeze jig with black and chartreuse finesse and antifreeze with firetiger worm. Dan was the man again but we all caught plenty of 15 to 18" fish. Released a couple of bigger fish early. MVIMG_20180516_104004.jpg

    Your right on that! My dad and I were challenged by a Us CO years ago. Forgot to add that most boats out there were pulling wire in the dirty water and no silver bass but Walt caught a giant sheep head.
