Started off the morning at 7:30am and attempted to head to Anchor Bay but the wind and waves were just to rough to make any headway without taking a soaker so stayed in front of the Harley Ensign wall for about 2 hours. Water was so muddy couldn't even see the lures until they came out of the water. Didn't catch anything there so slowly started making my way towards Selfridge which didn't look any cleaner. Tried out in front of there for an hour with no luck so began making my way up into Anchor Bay. Was making my way past Brandenburg Park and began to notice the water starting to clear up. Made a couple of drifts and began to pick up some small perch. Then the boat beside us ends up boating a nice walleye so we decided to work that area a little better. Ended up wasting another 1 1/2 hours there for about 3 more perch. By now the lake has layed down to glass and it felt as if it were close to 60 degrees out there but the fish just wouldn't bite. I figured next I would work my way down by 9 mile but the other guy in the boat said he would just rather go so that is the end of the season for me. I spent the rest of the day putting the boat up and wiping the tears away.

You sure got that right!! I don't tournament fish so it is all about the getting out. Still is a lot more fun when you hammering the fish instead of floating around catching one or two per hour though.

I managed to fillete 15 Perch and 4 nice Bluegills Saturday afternoon when I got home. We probably threw back 50 more Perch that were too small. We hid in some canals to get out of the wind and wouldn't you know it, the Perch were doing the same thing


I have some family coming out from NH for Thanksgiving. So we're going to have good ol' fashioned Perch fry tomorrow night when they get here.

I'm not putting my boat away just yet.

Excellent job East Coast!! I gave it all I had Saturday, knew we should have tried the canals. I was anchored over a good school of them but just couldn't get them to bite. Had to put the boat away even though it tore me up. Now I just have to wait on the hard water.

Sounds like you guys did OK Saturday, Marke. Let me know if you want to get out again soon. I'm gonna be off Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Maybe if the wind dies down for a few days, the water will clear up and we can find some toad smallies.
