Good morning fishermen!
We are looking forward to a GORGEOUS Memorial Day weekend. (As in a predicted high of 79 degrees on Saturday!!) We have a very appropriately named band for this coming weekend, "The Boys of Summer" will be playing both Friday and Saturday nights!
Fishing this weekend was a tad bit slower than it was opener weekend, but people still came in with some limits, and there were a lot of reports of big fish. Folks were fishing in the Morris Gap/Washout area, 6-12' of water, the Lighthouse Gap, and Four Mile Bay, and in the Gap, 12-14'. If you're sitting in a current area, you'll see the current is pretty fast, and you'll need at least a 1/2 to 1 oz jig, if you're in the lake, you won't need anything quite that big and 1/4-3/8 oz is plenty heavy. I am anticipating that we will have an official ice out this week, as its already well on it's way.
Picture is of Dalton holding his 29" personal best from this weekend.
***Recent update: Just had one of our guides call in and say he could no longer see any ice from the Morris area. It could have been pushed out further by the wind, but we are hoping it is all gone. I doubt I will be able to get a clear satellite image today, as it is pretty cloudy, but hopefully we can call ice out!
