It was tougher today so far. I think we made a bad decision on location. Seemed to be more fish close in.
Long story. We headed out around 7am but were afraid of the fog. So we held up in 22' and trolled with the wind 'til the fog cleared. Caught one in 20' at the end of the troll. Fog lifted. Ran to our usual spot up by Fermi. Lots of weed mats. Pain in the neck. Caught squat. Ran more in front of rocks. 26ish deep. Trolled straight in from there. Got better the closer we came. Quit for lunch. Was getting a bit windy.Nice fish. How far out were you? I trolled Sunday in 14 to 16 FOW and picked up a mixed bag of eyes, sheep, and white bass. Went from SSP channel to RR and back a few times. Fun for my kids. Hot n tots, Wally divers, and deep husky jerks did the trick. All colors worked. Beautiful day..

I didn't see any yesterday evening, but they were common this morning in spots.Thanks. Was wondering about the weeds. We are headed out Sat morn, first trip of the season
Today's weather looks to be similar to what they're forecasting for tomorrow. Get out there at dawn and fish fast. By noon it's going to be a little bumpy. Our 19' Starcraft had no trouble but my Terrova didn't like it much. You should be fine. We had a lot more marks in the 24 - 26 FOW area NE of RR buoys 1,2 near where the pack was. I don't care for being in the pack but keeping them close seemed to bring better numbers and size. But what do I know? I just started this stuff. This rookie is having a blast though.Any thoughts on fishing out of Sterling tomorrow? Northeast then east 5 to 10 mph?
it shouldn’t be to bad early!
They are in full swing. We have family that lives down the road from sterling and they are all over the house. It definitely affects the bite if it were me I would start looking at the top 3rd of the column.How is the mayfly hatch progressing? They might be full!??
Hmmmm... that's exactly where a lot of my marks were. Not so much deeper/suspended as when I was in the same water on Monday,They are in full swing.
