We went up Thur. night but did not go out. Just too windy and dark. Parked at Cove access and went out the next morning. Didn't have to go in to the main lake as the eyes were in the rocks on the way out of Cove bay. Drifted in 8 to 10 feet of water with drift sock and spinners. Took us a while but limited out on 18 inchers with one 20" and one 32" Northern. There was one other boat with three people. Talked to them after drifting by each other a dozen times or so. They got out a little earlier and almost had their limit at that time. It was a nice day Friday, a little windy even in the bay but caught about two fish an hour till 3:00 in the afternoon. Wound up staying out till about ten that night and bobber fished with no luck. Small red spinner tipped with a leach on a 3' to 4' snell red hook and I mean a small spinner, smaller than a dime. My wife had the only spinner that size and color and out fished me at least two to one. I tried numerous other lures and spinners but kept coming back to red and small. The wind was blowing pretty good into the rocks with little perch hammering your leach constantly. Fished right next to the boat with 1 oz barrel sinkers above the spinners. Lake is at least two feet low. Dinged both props. Garrison, Casino, and Cove accesses are very bad. Glad I didn't try launching at night before I saw the shape they were in during daylight. I guess the moral of this story is that you don't have to go very far to catch fish on this lake. Just watch the wind and bottom structure and use the basic techniques. Good luck smile.gif
