Best day at Willard this year!!
As far as species caughtWink. Wiperslayer and I launched from the North marina this week at 6:30am and after seeing many fish splashing on the surface, in the marina we started casting right by the boat ramp, we were thinking the wipers were chasing the shad to the surface but after casting for 15 to 20 mins or so we decided they were bugle mouth bassWink. Sure had our hopes up for a while. We trolled out into the Bay and after a few minutes Ira hooked a nice 14" SM bass, I wasn't smart enough to take a pic but it was the start of a 5 species day and almost 6Crazy. The next species that came to play was willard's ever loving cats, the first of 10 or so we caught. We kept trolling North, picking up several more cats, then a smaller eye decided it wanted in on the action. We head West and picked up more cats, including a nice 24 incher. It had been a calm morning up until then, then the wind came up, blowing from the South with it came 3 ft waves, that was when the big fish of the day hit. I thought I had the bottom, then the bottom moved but fighting the fish and the wind turned out to be an impossible task and after getting it to the surface once and seeing what it was, it decided to part ways with us, taking TD painted blade and worm harness with itFrown. That would have been species number 4 but it wasn't to be. With the wind we moved away from the shore and started heading back to the marina, trolling about 2.3 to 2.5 mph. All of a sudden the wind shifted to blowing from the North and the temp dropped, it almost got chilly and I was afraid the catching would shut off but we kept at it and picked up species number 4, a 10" crappieCrazy. I was very surprised at that point and thought what if we caught a wiper and before I could speak my thought to Ira, species number 5 came out to play, you guessed it a wiper. It wasn't a big fish but still it made our day. We ended up catching two more wipers, another crappie and another SM bass and more cats. At 12:30 we called it a day, water temp was 76 degrees. We were prepared to flig it, if the catching wasn't good trolling faster but that never happened. I've had 60 fish days a few years back of wipers, walleye and crappie but today was right up there as one of our best days at willard. Willard is alive a wellCool and the water is very clear.
