First off, thanks to all who helped with the hotel and launch info, I really appreciate it. Got to the lake around 4 in the afternoon thurs. Decided to fish the fairhaven instead of brandenburg because of your posts. We just headed to the breakline north west of grassy island and just started trolling to find cabbage beds. We found one and just parked and started casting from there. Two misses right at boat in first fifteen minutes, I figured I found a decent spot. By the way, once I get money, I'm investing in a Gps combo with nav. chip for marking spots. Anyways, busted a biggin on my homemade bucktail, little over 49" probably could almost be fifty but my friend didn't fan the tail. Half hour later he got a 44.5 on his homemade version of my bucktail( not as good, but does the trick version). Fri. ended up with six fish total, two around fifty and two decent pike on bucktail, kickin minnow and carp believer. I almost had a picture of me holding a guy by the ears with my topwater hanging out the side of his mouth. I did'nt miss him by much, man that would have been a great pic guys. Those big wake boats fly just out or in of casting distance when they have the whole lake. We almost saw two collisions in the north channel from one boater. St.Clair is an awsome lake though guys. I've fished the Indiana waters here now for three years and haven't seen the size of fish like I saw in a day and half up there. I would move there if not for my family and friends here. Heres a couple of the fish, hopefully it loads up. By the way the bucktail was #6 fluted, white silicone with red and white flash tinsel accents and rattles. Hopefully make it back before too long. See ya, Rusty.
