Fishing continues to be spotty. Stripping full sink lines or trolling them along with others using spinning rods and getting to deeper water(12 feet) are getting fish on maroon, brown and black leech patterns. Wedding bands have also been getting fish. A single large olive chironomid gave one fisher the reason to go olive with the color on his chironomid and paid off with good action for him. Bloodworm patterns still seem to be the ticket in getting good numbers of fish, fished over a mud bottom a few inches either slow strip or just hanging resulted in hard takes, flying leaps only to loose the fish, using #12 4X is most likely the cause to loose 80% of the fish hooked. I will be at the bench with other hook styles to close the gap to those lost. Haven’t heard any throat samples today but a visit to the fish cleaning station should solve that. Yesterday large bloodworms were taken in a throat sample while most had zip.
