Playing the weather pays off this week. Carp have invaded the flats and are hungry. The biggest fish of the week was 28 pounds. Smallmouth on the river cooperated nicely. The post spawn bite has started. Big flies still out produced anything else. I have a few dates still open for local fishing before I head to Beaver Island.
Falling river, dirty water, rising temps is what we were dealt this week. We caught fish, some days better than others but thats the game we play. There was no one hot color or pattern. One day they wanted black the next they wanted chartreuse. A little more than a month until the 2016 Island season and I can't wait!!
