Of all the fish my buddy and myself caught none of them had eggs or milt .
Were they juvenile fish ?
Water was 66 - 68 degrees .

Got a few pigs today. Didnt keep any. The girls were FAT with eggs and the guys are just to big for my liking for the table. Caught a few mids but not enough to start keeping them. Variety of hardware. Beetle spins, hair jigs, small panther martins. Alot of bass today also.

I'm starting to see fish suspended in my local southern MI lakes - thermocline is 25 to 30 feet depending on the lake

Just pulled a bunch of nice gills down 15 feet in 20-25 feet of water. Curiously, every single one of them had eggs/milt. This was a deep clear lake so not sure if it's the first spawn for these fish or is more of a late 2nd spawn type thing

I tell people this a lot, and I get some funny looks. I almost feel like some of the biggest fish spawn in July.
