Been busy and have not had a chance to report much this year. But one observation from last night. The fall feed is not far behind. Air temps have droped 10 degrees over the last week and surface water temps in the lake about 3 degrees. I registered 69.3 degrees along the South shore of St. Clair yesterday. Of course this was taking later in the day which could have been a factor. Fish should start to gang up on isolated spots, hold there, and feed heavily. If you catch a fish of a spot, odds are there plenty more there as well so don't hesitate to work it over good. We had a little bit of evidence last night. We pulled roughly 15-20 smallies off a spot no bigger 2 boats in about an hour or so. In week's prior it has been 2 or 3 max. Most of the fish we caught still had there "summer build" but a few were approaching football shape. All of our fish were caught on tubes but I did notice a number of fish slashing at the bait as it was brought back to the bought. One of which nearly jumped in the boat as I was lifting out of the water. Nearly gave me a heart attack! A good solid jerkbait bite is not far behind. This should only get better as the weeks go on. We are in for some exciting times. Good luck.
