Location: Beach 10 break wall 52ft
Time Observed: 5/28 8am to 11am
Water Conditions: 1ft @ 64 degrees water temp
I don't know about moon phases or any other hoo-doo, but we caught 4 limits of nice perch and a bonus 28" walleye yesterday. The shiners were big, so we cut them in half, worked great. Some kind of fly hatch was happening and that was a little irritating but when the bite is on who cares? Radio quit on me, so I couldn't relay the info on the bite. 1big1
Location: Beach 10 East to the G.E.T.S. stack, 47' - 51'
Time Observed: Last Thursday to Monday
Water Conditions: Variable
The weather played cat and mouse last weekend, big fish were caught but only a few limits. At least 8 "26" "eyes" were caught with a 28" one caught by a 7 year old Warren Pa. girl. The rising moon may cause some problems this weekend so the best fishing may occur in the afternoon. The fish are moving a lot and have "not schooled up yet." Minnow availability is still a problem!
