Went out early. Had a tough time figuring out what the fish wanted for the first few hours. Fish were scattered, and a bit of a mixed bag of small pike and LMB and a SMB. Also tracked down a single crappie. Moved shallow to get out of the wind and found some rock bass. Fun little buggers. Saved a few for dinner.

Went out Saturday between 7:00 and 2:00. Windy, but productive in the south bay. 15 bass all between 1-2 lbs., 2 small northern just to be a pain. To get out of the wind I tried the north shore, saw a lot of fish but they were not ready to spawn and not thinking of eating. Found a few over by the marina as well.

really wish the pier would be centered on the ramp like it once was. It would really make launching a boat alone a lot easier.

Best time of year!

Went to Ripley first time this year few boats out but many left quickly. I hit all the normal spots weeds are barely up and saw only one bed on the far north side in about 2 foot of water. 

I was able to put my kids on some smaller gills and bass near the marina in the mouth of the creek by the Lilly pads. Few 8 inchers but most were 6 with quite a few 10 inch large mouth. All fish still swimming but kids had a blast my son's 4 and he's hooked weather was awesome. Great day to be on the water.

Water temp got up to 66 by the time it was 1 o'clock I think another week of warm weather and it will be on.

I don't fish Ripley yet, but fish nearby lakes that have those white worms. Gross as it may appear, as long they are cooked properly they are no harm to you. Can also be fish to to fish one may have them and the other may not. It's personal type decision to keep them of course.

Everyone says Ripley fish have bugs or worms but I haven't seen many or maybe I never noticed. Do you still keep and eat them

Water temp was 49 today. Lots of bass and northern cruising around. Some small gills in shallow, biggest was maybe 7". I think the rain and cold slowed them down. Maybe another week and things will get better.


Edit: We kept 8 seeds, thick 7-7.5". All of them had yellow worms in the fillets. No black spots on the outsides either.
