Was out 2 weeks ago from shore and caught crappies so big we had to net them.  This past weekend,  we caught hand size crappies and quite a few gills.

A few crappies but the bluegill bite is great.  Good place to bring your kids to learn to fish.  Crappie bite is hit and miss but just about anything will bring in a bluegill.  Of course, lots of little ones but have kept about 30 over the last few days that were at least 8".  I'm pretty picky.  Love the fight of catching a gill on an ultralight.  Using small flies or just a small bobber with a gold hook with a "very" small piece of red worm and your kids will have a ball.  Bring the family!

Walked off by the point and hopped the working crack to get out to the reef on Tues.AM.  Fished 5ft., then left to fish 14ft. Saw some fish on the finder, then PK caught a walleye. I switched to similar colored jigging rap and teased a fish up seven feet before the walleye in the pic finally hit. A snow squall came thru rattling my flip over shack but, we were totally alone off  Asylum  in stark contrast to the "Battle" weekend when the Lake was a sea of cars. Had to work so we pulled the plug at noon. Live bait went un- touched but for a small perch PK kept, so he could say he caught more fish than me!

not a bad weekend in asylum.  hesitated going out there because of the last couple of weeks but production was much better.  perch bite was very light but schooling pretty steady both days.  saw the size uptick as well.  went out Saturday morning from 6-11am and got around 15 fish.  Sunday I went out from 6-830 and got another 10.  I kept 10 of the 25 all over 8 inches. got 2 that were right about 10 inches and fat too.  had one dead stick rosie with silver spoon and was jigging gold spoon with red spikes.  one of the big ones came off the dead stick and one off the jigging stick.  minnow head was not as consistent as the spikes were on the jigging stick.  a lot of lookers when I switched to it with little bite.  however, when they did hit they were bigger.  I know its all over the map as far as a report but i'd rather give good info than crap.  best guess is bring both baits and switch like I did until you see whats working.  I will say the dead stick did bring them in more frequently then id hammer with the jigging stick.  good luck this weekend to all those fishing the tourney.  ill be out all day Friday and Saturday.  more than likely not in the bay but out deeper in search of the elusive eye's
