Lots of action today
<p>Well...it was day two with Dale and Mark DeWildt. We got on the water about 6:30 a.m. and started marking fish right away in 19-21 fow. We got out the bottom bouncers, Walleyes Choice spinners( http://www.walleyeschoice.com ) (I-42 to be exact), and started trolling at .9 mph. We got 8 keepers and several throwbacks doing this, then decided we were going to try for some perch. I had a couple hundred wigglers left over from perch fishing last month and I'm glad I kept them. We got anchored on a pretty big school of fish and had a blast catching fish...however most of them weren't perch! The walleyes were grabbing the wigglers before the perch could. We caught 4 more keeper walleyes, several throwbacks, some good eating sized perch, and some junk fish like a couple suckers and the first sheepie of the season. The walleyes were a blast on 9 ft. steelhead rods and light line. Once I even had a double, a nice perch and a small walleye. The avg. size fish was a little smaller than yesterday, but mmm mmm good eating! Overall it was a very fun morning of fishing on the bay with some great guys. We saw a couple of guys get their limit tossing jigs, and that's one of the great things about this bay, you can catch fish so many different ways. Seems like it was a pretty good bite today for everyone. Big storms firing up just to the west as I type this...so it's time to shut things down. Good luck from all of us in the Bay de Noc area.
