We had a great first pass this morning after the storms passed. Somewhere between 10-12 bites! 70-90′ down over 120-140′ of water. The darker spin docs (carbon 14, Black Crush) were hitting well early when paired with red meat rigs. Our divers were out 225′ (standard divers) and the 300-350′ coppers were firing well too. The “Big Ugly” program seems to be back on. The gaudier the lure, the more they like it. Try a plug on your copper, the Watermelon took several bite.
The guys jigging, using the P-Line vertical jigs, are having pretty good success as well, here in the bay. Those casting from the wall or pier are reporting mediocre action, but are predicting better bites anytime.
Not much action in the rivers as of yet. We should be getting close
Reports from Platte Lake say the Walleye are in hiding. I’m sure this week’s full moon phase didn’t help that bite at all.
Crystal is still giving up great catches of Rock Bass and nice catches of Perch. The perch aren’t huge but the action is pretty decent.
