I ended up taking Friday off to try a day time trip on Saginaw Bay because the weather conditions look too good to pass up. With the water being down more than 14" from last year the areas I usually have become use to finding fish was very different. Found more fish in 3 feet of water next to tall grass sandy bottom. Most other times 18" of water with dark silty bottom areas are much better. Just to be clear this might be on of those exception days when they were just being different. The fish were full of eggs and large percentage of high teens weights with serval 20+# fish . Gars are in full spawn and many are in large balls. Some sheepshead & dogfish
