Good to hear someone was about to catch some fish yesterday. I was out in the evening around Algonac and had my most frustrating jigging trip ever. The fish were biting - I got probably 25 to 30 hits. But not a single fish made it into the boat. Hitting on the bottom, hitting on the way up, hitting on the drop. Most had that sharp tick that actually feels like a bite opposed to just dragging it along their sides. Most were just complete misses, but did have 5 or 6 pop off halfway up, but even those fish weren't fighting much at all. Three different rods of varying stiffness, different colors, sharpened stingers & main hooks but nothing helped. The oddest part was I'd only get bites for the most part the first drift through an area. Go back for round 2 with either the same color or something different, and almost nothing. Finally after dark I got one to the surface that didn't fight much so I was going to boat flip it, but once I got it up, it looked to be 20" or a little bigger just laying on the surface. That's bigger than I like to boat flip with the rod, so I grabbed the line to pull it in, and it popped off when I lifted it out of the water. So that makes the first skunk of the year for me.
