Good luck!

Tough bite yesterday. Started in the Escanaba River, looking for bass. Only caught one 18 inch fish. With all the recent rains, the current is ripping pretty good, and the water temp has dropped 10 degrees, (had 50 degrees last night!) The few walleye fishermen I talked to at the river mouth said it was tough to work a jig with all the current, and all they had was one small walleye. With all that info, I loaded up the boat and headed to Gladstone to find some perch. The area off the campgrounds is absolutely LOADED with fish right now! I haven't seen them stacked like that in a couple years. From the breakline, to out to 36 - 37 FOW. Had fish under the boat the whole time I was out - but the bite was SLOW! In a couple hours, I only landed 12 perch and 7 rockbass, (only two of the perch were keepers.) If they hang around for the next few days, the fishing could get pretty good. I'll keep ya posted.

Still good numbers of perch off of Gladstone. Fished off the water treatment plant in 32 to 34 FOW. Marked better numbers off Saunder's Point in 40 to 43 FOW, but the wind and waves made anchoring there nearly impossible. Landed 68 perch, 1 baby walleye, 1 ruffe, and a 3 or 4 pound drum, (fun on light perch gear!) Kept 18 of the perch, plus released one that was 13 1/2 inches! As usual for me, they were all caught on perch rigs with wigglers.

Who knows how many people have badgered Tom at Moonshine lures to start painting spinner blades over the years, (I know I was one of them.) Well, ask and yee shall receive! Moonshine now has a line of crawler harness blades. They're painted on premium #5 deep cup, hex pattern, blades. 14 regular glow patterns with silver backs, and two RV patterns with gold backs, (willow patterns in the pic are not Moonshines.) Check them out!

Overall, the opener was slow on LBDN. Lots of zero, one, and two fish reports. Best numbers came from the upper bay. Didn't hear anything from the Escanaba River during the day. I fished the Escanaba in the evening for smallmouth. The bass bite was on fire, in the rain! Casting shallow running crankbaits was the ticket. Even managed to catch one barely legal walleye. Rain may have turned the walleyes on a little in the evening. There were a couple rigs cleaning fish at the cleaning station, when I pulled up to the dock, (they were done before I finished loading up, so didn't get a report.) How'd everyone else do? PS - ya gotta "stiff arm" 'em, when they're this small!
