Man, did we get hosed last night or what. Fished from 400 down to almost 9 mile anywhere from 11 to 15 feet. A few tiny perch, few tiny bass, 3-4 SHEEPheads and one nice almost trophy sized bass... sob was about 3 lbs. The wind was either howling and dragging us waaaaay tioo fast or we were sitting in one spot and not moving at all. It also kept on changing direction and tangling up all the lines., and the waves got pretty nasty. After the sundown fishing died. Period. I was using a crawler harness on one rod and H2o's berkley powergrubs (white ) on the other on a small 1/8oz sinker jig. Had a tiny little bass on the powergrub... and a few fish hooked that didnt make it to the boat. Just kept on slipping off! Is there a secret h2o? I rarely lose them on regular hooks. What am i doing wrong? And in terms of 'eyes... Not a single one in side. Just damn SHEEPheads. One of them that i pulled out was totally golden. I've never seen them so yellow before. Usually they are silverish. And another thing. Alot of perch that i have been getting have red ulcerations on their bodies. Anyone notice that? Is that some kind of a virus or a parasite?

See ya'll out there this weekend....

I was out there last night too. From about 5:30 to 8:30 fishing same area, couldn't get bit till I move into 7' of water then only a few small mouth. Never had one of those days where you catch 50 smallies, 25 perch, etc. Starting to think you can't believe all you read.

There are a ton of fish in the area, but you cannot expect them to be in that same place day in and day out. By moving shallow you were doing the right thing, also try deeper.

50 fish days on Clair are not uncommon, you just have to work for them. Once you find them you will understand....

dsull,

dont give up that easy man. its all right place/right time/right attitude.

have you been fishing lsc long?

whether you know the lake or just get lucky and get on fish, keep working and you will have many days with 50+ fish. i promise. just pay attention to all the details when you are catching them here and there. and from there you can fine tune what you are doing to find exactly what the fish want. once you give them that, you will catch the heck out of them.

work man, WORK! nothing comes easy.

It must have been one of those days. The Bananna-boat went in at Crocker about 8:00 AM and went down to Memorial Park. Drifted in. Drifted out. Nothing. The Bananna-boat then headed South to 10 Mile. Drifted there for a while. Nothing. The BB then headed out to the L bouy and tried again. Consistant results. Went down and tried the Dumping Grounds. Same old song. The boat then started heading back North with stops along the way at Nine Mile, Memorial Park and Crocker. All in all it was a beautiful day for fishing, just not catchin. The Bananna-boat has been doing the morning thing but it thinks it will try the evening pretty soon.
Good Fishing

I'd have to agree with the bananna boat. My father-in-law was all day yesterday. Fished everywhere from the launch by Crocker to the firecracker to the Canadian shore to the St. Clair Light to Buoy S. and back up the mile roads. Only caught some bass (mostly small ones), a couple muskie followed, & that's all she wrote. Better luck this weekend boys

madman--- Second year, I go out 3-4 hours after work a couple time a week and either all day sat or sunday. Don't get me wrong I catch fish most days but still waiting for that big school of hungry bass. I usually drift like h20 with tubes, grubs on lite line, throw some crank baits, spinners,etc. even bought a under water camera to try to find good spots. It's a big lake and I'm still trying to get to know it, I do work work work and I know it will pay off someday, it's just you get so geeked up with antisipation that today is going to be the day and it just hasen't happend yet.
