Well I got out for the opener out of Selfridge at 7:15. Fished some weed beds in front of the Selfridge barracks to start off. Water on the west side of Anchor Bay is still very dirty. Was only able to land 1 smallie, 4Lber, on a Brunner Runner in a perch color with a chartruese blade. I then moved to more weedbeds closer to the Salt and had a follow of about a 15lber on a Red Eye. Water still very stained but better than Selfridge. Moved to Grassy where I had no runs, hits or errors. Water was 58 degrees near Grassy with the water much cleaner. Finished the day off the Fairhaven point with nothing to show. Tried both casting as well as trolling to no avail. Called it a day at 1:30 and who should I run into at the ramp but our own future hall of famer, Musky Bob. He had a little better day than me but I`ll let him tell about it. Better luck for me next time.
Fished selfridge and the salt all day for the toothy critter. We had 3 follows and 1 on. the 3 follows were all big legal fish. This area should explode once the water clears up a bit. We did happen to land 3 largemouth bass (2 3lb fish and a dink) and 2 5lb walleye! all in all a nice day on the lake!
Got out myself on Saturday, too. What made it a really good day was that my two boys, who rarely fish, went with me! Was out from Selfridge - nothing doing, water still pretty dirty. Then south of A marker, we hit the bass tre - largie, smallie, and silver. Youngest got the biggest fish, oldest got the most bites, and Dad got the smallest fish. No walleye, pike, panfish, or other. Just about a dozen bass. Did see one musky about 36" landed out from Selfridge in 7-8 fow. Off the water by 2 PM to get oldest to work on time.
