Fun morning at the lake!

8 posts in this topic

Yesterday mornig DzNuts (Ryan) and I went out to the lake early in the morning. The day started out a bit slow but as soon as the sun started brightening things up, the bite started warming up good too.

The areas of downed trees and docks seemed to do us pretty well. As long as there was some deeper water close by. As a matter of fact one place we were at, the front of the boat was only 4 feet and the back was 17 feet.

Fished without bait just 1/32 oz. and 1/8th oz. jigs and an assorment of plastic. I don't know but if I had to guess white was the best color.

We caught gills, crappies, and accidental bass and northerns. Ryan got broke off once on a nice one. Only got to see glimpses of it because each time he got it up it would dart away. Later in the morning at a different area he catches another northern. Finally got it to the boat, snapped a quick picture and released it. He's going to have to post the picture. Very nice looking fish. Cool colors.

I caught my biggest white (it is a white aint it?) so far this year too. Here's the picture of it. All fish were released today. Nothing went home.

That was a very nice crappie. That accu-casting you do is incredible.

Thanks for chartering, Dan. I had no idea a person could actually catch that many fish in one morning. And Dan was even dissapointed in the "low numbers". I have obviously been fishing wrong this whole time. blush.gif

I lost the first slimer cause I was impatient and worried about running out of line (4lbs test and only about 30 ft of it), but Dan had some extra line sitting in the boat so he tied that on so I was able to have a full spool again and was ready for the next fight. grin.gif

The beast weighed in a 5.8 lbs. Maybe not the biggest in the lake, but the biggest fish I ever boated.

Awesome fish guys. The Zum is really starting to heat up. I still have not tied into one of those pikers yet, but my time will come.

Yep Dan, that's a whity. And a NICE one.

      Made it out to North Center today by sunken island. Not very good, one perch. Marking them just not committing. Lots of water on ice, but ice is fine. 17 inches.    As far as north access, off Nelson road on east side there is an access. Put money in the box and don't be a Richard, I believe it is owned by a farmer and let's people use

      Lake St Clair is a blast. If you hit vermilion at the right time it will be right up there with that. No reason you can't have a 100 fish day with a good chance at many big fish. Going by my phone pictures I had a great day on June 17 a few years back ha. Theres no shortage of rocky shorelines and docks. I'm a fan of tubes myself but I know guys love their senkos.    I'm sure you'll get some more specific responses. Wish I had more time to chase them myself
