With up and down temperatures changes this can defiantly effect the fishing. Anglers still have been catching Large and Smallmouth Bass. Working jerk baits super slow have been working well in the shallow water around the PI. As for deeper water, try drop shotting small plastics like KVD drop shot half shells. TIGHT LINES!

Anglers are getting Pike on the PI. The warmer the water gets the better the fishing will become. Perch are also being caught around the bay on minnows and soft plastics.
