Labor day weekend report

Saturday wasn't a bad day of fishing. It<BR>rained twice an hour and the wind changed<BR>directions every 45 minutes. <P>But it didn't rain much and the wind wasn't<BR>blowing real hard. I think when you are<BR>fishing deeper water these changes in the<BR>weather aren't such a big deal.<P>There has been a real good bite right out<BR>of the Lighthouse Gap anywhere from 20 to<BR>30 feet of water for several days last <BR>week. Saturday wasn't a barn burner but <BR>there was fish there willing to bite.<P>My Wife and I used the downriggers for a <BR>while and did ok. The wind went away for<BR>so I pulled out the lead core rods<BR>and we trolled with them for a short while<BR>with no success. It stayed flat so we <BR>vertical jigged with minnows and caught<BR>3 Saugers in 15 minutes. Next, we used the<BR>kicker motor to backtroll spinners and <BR>caught about 3 more smaller fish. We finished up with the riggers and quit for<BR>the day with 8 nice keepers from 14 to 19<BR>inches and about 25 throwbackers.<P>I talked to a friend of mine who has been<BR>NE of Long Point pulling plugs for a month<BR>now and is still doing real well downrigging.<BR>Better average size of fish. That is a <BR>real good area out there.<P>It was fun to fish with a jig and minnow <BR>again. Peak time for that is only a few<BR>short weeks away.<P>------------------<BR>Curt Quesnell<BR>NorthCountry Outdoors Radio<p>[This message has been edited by curt quesnell (edited 09-06-2004).]
