Warmer temps and light wind have warmed up the water column quickly
So much going on. Warmer temps and light wind have warmed up the water column quickly. Fish were feeding heavy early last week, the last couple of warm calm days have gotten them a bit more tight lipped. We have had large hatches of fish flies and the other amounts of forage seem to allow them to go without aggressively eating the last couple days. Some will call this the starting of a transition period where we see a deeper mud bite and trolling with plugs is more likely to generate a reaction strike as apposed to a live bait feeding bite.
We are still covering both Big and Little Traverse Bays. Mostly we have been drifting with spinners, crawlers or leeches work well. The forecast is looking great for the week ahead. Most days with highs in the 70’s.
