    Thanks.



    It seems easy this season because the fish are biting so well, so far anyway. To put it in a skier's perspective, this is like getting 6" or more of fresh snow every time you go out on the hill.

    It was gray and threatening rain as we pushed off yesterday; even though a cold front was clearly moving through we decided to go out for a few hours anyway. Big smallmouths were hiding, only caught little ones. Good to see the little fish it means the water body is healthy and the fish are thriving and reproducing.

    Since I brought raingear we never saw a drop of rain and the largemouth fishing was good in protected spots. This was my biggest of the day:



    Gonna try to get out again tomorrow. Too cool and damp today.

    A couple of friends of mine had an excellent day whiting fishing this week. One of my favorite eating fish.

    I think a day of good action like that in salt water is the best!

    Also, the lighter tackle makes it more fun IMO.

    Been pretty hot with lower water levels until the last 3-4 days, but two big player mayflies are hatching in the evenings and further into the night:
    Green Drake(~1" in length) and Hexagenia(~1"-3" in length)..below.
    The huge female Hexes are drawn to light @night...the big white insects seen up in the lights at gas stations at night...
    HA...I'm a no show with the brooktrout, sorry...been cold and damp this last few days...gotta wait till next week.

    That's a big daddy! There are many mayflies at my house but earlier in the year in spring.

    Just noticed the umbrella rig and double header in one of steamboat's pics too.

    Umbrella rig? They were using a three hook high/low rig with either a 8oz. sinker on the bottom or 8oz. jig. Between 5 guys they caught around 150 whiting,150 ling & a bunch of haddock. Lots of good eating right there!

    rig:


    good eats:

    This is what I've learned today; admittedly no salt water expert.

    A lot of meat!

    Wow was it hot yesterday! Not a great day to fish, nothing but a few small ones.

    But it was a great afternoon/evening to hang out on the water in the shade and drink.

    The other folks we usually see fishing had the same luck, there was a backup at all the boat spots getting off the lake at dark!
