My week of staycation is coming to a close. I thought i'd do a brief report. Fished the opener with 2 friends. only one lazy follow. Monday it was lake Erie. The wind was up, so we fished inside Donnelley's. this produced 10 smallish smallmouth. The wind allowed us to fish the main lake on Tuesday. It was mud out for a couple miles. Went out deep and dragged worm harnesses. This produced only white perch.
Stayed home and did chores on Wednesday. Thursday was Lake Ontario for trout and Salmon. We released 3 small Coho's. Friday was trolling and some bottom fishing on Erie. We picked up a mixed bag with a couple walleye, a few bass, a perch and several Lackawannna Redfish.
Today, conditions had improved enough to dive for the first time this year. the water was a bit stained and silty. We had 8 foot visibility. Bumped 5 muskie on the first drift, 2 were beauties. also a Sturgeon, and decent amounts of bass, and walleye. The second drift produced more bass and walleye encounters. I hope to get out again soon- Jim
