Thanks for taking me out fishing yesterday Mike. Had a great time, and we caught a nice limit of fat eyes:) Wasn't sure if you were putting a report up, so here goes.....Fished off Sebewaing in 12-14 fow outside the bar. Hot n tots and a t-stick jr. on one side, spoons off lead on other. All rods took fish. Beautiful day after the storm. Tots were 30' back, and lead was 1 1/2 color out from board with 20' leader to spoon. Speed was 2.2-2.4., and 7 or 8 of 10 fish were 20" plus, with biggest around 4lbs. Too hot to lay them out for pic, here's my 5 at home.

I use little rippers and DHJ all year with success and usually take the larger fish. Little rippers run great at 1.5 so you can run with harnesses.

nice job on the fish ralph..... were the bugs bad?
Only a couple biting flies, little nats weren't around where we were. Water was pretty flat also. Nothing fast and furious, hit a pod of fish and take a couple and that spot would dry right up. Then find another pod and 2 or 3 more. Only 2 throwbacks and a couple sheep. Just enough to enjoy the day and not make it too much like work in the heat:D

It was my pleasure to take you out Ralph, I had a good time and your spoon behind lead program was a good lesson for me. Yesterday I went to GrindStone and fished with a guy who ran an all leadcore program and it was very productive in 30 to 40 fow as well. We caught some nice fish (2 to 7 pound range), one short of our limit but it took a while to get them. Anyway, I hope we get another chance to fish together, it was a good to meet you.
