My last open water fishing report for 2016.
It was windy as heck on Big Green with a 15-20 mph wind out of the SW. This made the main lake kinda of dangerous, so for the most part we stayed away from the deeper water.
We found the perch over sand and rocky bottoms feeding on a windward shore over sand & rocks in shallow water feeding on minnows. While we caught a few on worm chunks under bobbers, the vast majority came on a dark colored jig head tipped with a minnow slowly dragged on the bottom.. We actually went through our minnows, ran to town and got more... and ran through those as well.
Between the two of us, we easily caught over 200 (most were released) and would often get hit 6 or more times on each retrieve. Fishing was steady like this all day.
We couldn't have asked for a better end to the 2016 open water season.
