Clients lit up Lake Leelanau
Fished Lake Leelanau this weekend. Excellent bite going on right now. Did really well on slip bobbers and leeches (thanks to awesome bait from the Narrows Resort Bait Shop and Greg!). Caught lots of walleyes on cranks and plastics as well. I use the lightest jighead possible, all dependent on the wind. Still thrilled with the stuff Carl has produced at Old Fart Lures (www.oldfartlures.com). Favorite colors are citrus shad and green pumpkin in 1/8, 3/16, and 1/4 oz. My favorite part about the jigs is the 4/0 Mustad hooks he uses.
Saturday highlights: Todd, Alex, Dave, and Mike ended up with a nice mess of walleyes and some dandy smallies - mostly caught on leeches.
Sunday am highlights: Fished all over the lake with Ed and Tom and these guys did great on both jigs and crankbaits. Lots of walleyes and some nice smallies.
Sunday afternoon: Had the privilege of taking Dan and his son, Ben, out. These guys pounded fish. Ended up with a couple of meals of walleyes. Also caught a number of nice smallmouth between 2 and 4 pounds. My highlight was watching Ben reel these hard fighting fish in!
Monday highlights: Dwight caught a bunch of quality eyes. He also caught a northern pike.
