i went out to kent lake today, from about noon until 3pm. i caught 1 non-keeper smallie, and three keepers, from 15 1/2 inches to 16 1/2 inches. my partner caught one 17" smallie, and one 25" northern. it was a little cold today, but when it warmed up, and the wind died down, the fish stopped biting. when we were in the cold wind, the fish were biting. we lost a couple fish that we had on for a few seconds, and we saw fish following our baits right to the boat. i'm sure that if we stayed out there a couple more hours, i would have finished my limit, but had to go to work. the fish were out in open water, around 6 or 7 fow. i got skunked out there last year, so it felt good just catching anything.
