Lake Leelanau 5/15-5/16
Fished Thursday and Friday on Lake Leelanau. Water temps were 57-60 degrees. Fish were clearly feeding on wigglers which definitely affected the way they bit the plastic. Thursday I literally missed 15 fish. Most of them I'd hook and then they'd come unpinned. We only caught 3 legals and a bunch of shorts, some nice smallies, and northerns.
I had a guide trip on Friday with Gary and his son, Brandon. Great people to have on the boat. Both of these guys worked hard to learn how to fish a jig. Ended up with 7 legals. Caught some big smallies, northerns and rock bass. Fish were still just grabbing the bait. You could feel the walleyes actually chewing the bait - very different from when they are feeding on baitfish.
