Greg, I just read that you were out on Bowstring Saturday with the outdoor writer from the S/C Times. I just had to ask, was it a little cold? I was out there that same day and absolutely froze. We plopped down on my favorite crappie spot and waited for the fish to come to us as we weren't going to move in that miserable weather. Wanted to go try for some perch but we decided NO WAY!! Just had to ask!! Good luck fishing!!

hey merc,

me and a couple buddies were out there as well, on the north end. We got out there around 1100 and fished till about 3 and decided the hill in squaw lake would be a better place to be! grin.gif We only caught a few little perch and we braved the elements and moved 2x. Some guys told us they had caught some decent crappies and perch earlier in the morning. How did you guys do? We were planning on fishing Round Lake for the Squaw Lake Fire Dept's perch jerk but it got cancelled till this coming weekend.

Merc,

Oh yeah, it was cold enough out there. We moved three times before finding fish. It wouldn't of been bad if it wasn't windy out.

Jerry was up to get a few photos, etc. I tried to talk him into another weekend but it was the only one that would work for him.
We went out the next morning on a different lake for a half-day and it was even colder than the day before. Jerry said "you probably wouldn't even be fishing if I wasn't here." I answered "probably not."

bmc,

We actually did pretty well on crappies considering the miserable weather. Like I said we set up and waited and it finally paid off later in the afternoon. At first it was very slow with a fish every half hour or so and you had a lot of sorting on those. Then all of a sudden they showed up and they were pretty decent fish. Only got four perch but where we were is not typically a good perch spot. The thing I like about Bowstring is there are so many spots to try that I don't have to fish in the crowds. I look where the people are and then go off and try the spots where nobody is. Normally we get something out there, not aways limits but enough to keep our interest up anyway. We stopped and talked to somebody on the north end by the two big permanent houses and they were fishing perch but everything they were getting was very small. I'm going to try it next week again during the week. Good luck fishing!!!!

      Well, we netted a half dozen fish with the new net and I think I like it.  The biggest was a 45 and everything worked out real nice. Bringing the fish in was easy and then laying the net handle across the gun wale of the boat was enough to keep the fish and bag in the water and in pretty straight shape to work with.  Even with my 40 that needed the hooks cut off, the fish was completely in the water the whole time.  The only time any were out of the water was for a quick measure and photos.  No twisted gnarled mesh to deal with for the most part either. It proved to be worth the space!

      Beautiful day to be on the water, but such a struggle catching fish.  Marking a lot of fish and just as many bait balls or some other underwater clouds that the game fish were keying in on.  Ended up C&R a lot of really plump Sunnies ( thinking they haven't spawned yet?),  2 Northerns, several pieces of timber, 2 slot Walleyes, and a great sunburn. All within 12 hrs of fishing.

      I'll try to make it. Does 8 am work? Might go for other species too for fun.

      Another good a.m bite for me and my wife today , ( Thurs ) on Big bay . Nice fish again . Our limit of keeps , also put two back . 8:00 - noon. . . .  Hey Cliff , I’m gonna try to send you a p m .

      Was in Big Bay once again today and saw a few more Mayfly today than Tuesday . I agree things are just kinda getting going with the hatch , and also believe that these bugs will last until well after the 4th of July . With that being said , I also believe that fishing should hold up for awhile until the fish become so gorged out that things could come to a screeching halt later into this whole bug period .

      Mine does not have an auto fan setting on the dial. I wish it did.

      Setting the fan to high or low the fan runs continuously. Set the fan to auto fan will start/stop with the compressor.
