September 19th Fishing Report
The bite last week was a little tougher than its been. We still had good catches but really had to work at it. Strong east winds made it tough to get around and fishing multiple spots was sometimes impossible. Most of our luck was drifting gold spinners. Crawlers were our main bait of choice, but there was one or two days where minnows outperformed crawlers. We caught some fish jigging, but catch rates are higher and fish are bigger with spinners. The jig bite should turn on day by day. We caught a lot of other species when we fished over rocks… crappies and perch, but also some bass in the mix. Our best success has been on rock transitions near humps and islands. Fish are showing up in their normal fall haunts and are vacating the mud spots where we caught them all summer.
