Still holding eggs. Kind of surprising with the water temp. Must have warmed up too fast.

Caught crappie on the weed edge and off wood in little balsam. Worked hard but kept 24 , 9-11" ers. Bass have not stayed in shallow yet. Caught some nice ones out around 6' rain seemed to slow down the bite yesterday.

Slayed the bass all along the dock on the north shore east of the Rt 46 boat ramp. Pulled in a number of smaller pike, a couple of rockies, FAT pumpkinseeds and FAT perch.
We were drifting in from 20 FOW and they started hitting from 13 down to 3. Perch and a pike or two caught on crawler harness or a jig with minnow. Most of the 15 or so bass we caught were on bass buster-type spinners, large and medium sized, silver blades, with skirts with red eyes. Fishing got really hot from about 6pm to dusk. Banged up my wire leader so bad, I had to throw it way!
Weather was beautiful. Breezy, but not a pain in the hiney.
