Catching up on reports: Houghton Lake 5/27-28
Fished with Pat and Art, my 85 year old friends. These guys are really amazing - this was probably my favorite trip with them. We fished almost all new areas on Houghton Lake. Wind day 1 forced us to focus on west and south shores. Found good fish in a number of new spots. Only ended up with 4 legal walleyes, but caught some nice smallmouth and largemouth bass, and panfish. Art caught his person best for largemouth at around 3 lbs and Pat got a really nice eye. Fished some leeches on slip bobbers and plastics.
Day 2 was flat calm and 80+ degrees. We baked on the water - ended up with a bunch of crappies, largemouth, and a couple walleyes. Fished the crappies most of the day. Guys did great.
