   Half of that statement from CC is correct.

Went out yesterday from 1-6. Wanted a fish fry so tried: Drifting, vertical jigging and trolling - nothing. Switched to bass fishing and ended up with 5 with a bonus like.

About ten days back, I fished the river from Big Bend down the the ramp above Tichigan, never bumped into a Yellow Bass either.

Fished for a short time after church today. Steady action for my two boys. My oldest caught all the keepers, five in all. He wanted fish for lunch tomorrow . Crawler chunks did the job again. FYI - blue green algae bloom on Waterford Lake. Also, don't let the banter fool you- Gill and Plmlk are two of the nicest guys you'll meet.

One more thing: the WWMD dredging survey results are in, check their Facebook for details.

   Have to agree with the last post.  Slow early fall fishing with no yellow bass and barely a keeper gill. Fortunately fan casting long ways with rocket bobbers got my grandson his favorite fish a nice cat also a decent sheephead and a 17" bass.  Let em all go of course.  Crawlers pieces caught the fish, minnows didn't even get a bite.

The water temp is down to 70, so I thought  the fish would have the feed bag on. 

Started on the Lake yesterday and couldn't find any eyes or gills - we found a couple LM Bass and that was it.  Headed our favorite river spots and found lots of 6 inch Gills, only found 7 that were worthy of the frying pan. 

Also really strange is where the Yellow Bass are.  Last year at this time you could catch a cooler full - I've only caught 2 this year. 

This spring and early to mid summer has been the best that I can recall on Tichigan, However, late summer and early fall have been a bit slower than previous years.

CC was right on with the crawler chunks under the bobber, we caught a bunch of them, had a good time, unfortunately, there were no fish that I would call a keeper. A lot of fish under 6". but it was fun for a morning of enjoyment !!!!

Bluegill bite has picked up on the river.  My girls had a blast with about 25 and a couple keepers in the mix.  Surprised that one was into the 9" range and my younger one couldn't lift it onto the dock... "too heavy!"  I hope this is a harbinger for the hard water season.

1/2 crawler on bobber worked on larger fish but waxies were out catching 2 to one.

Hit Tichigan on Wednesday. The fishing is definitely tougher than my past couple visits. Had to move around a lot to find the bass. They we aggressive when you found them but few and far between.
