Thought I had a huge Smallie and then wuh wahhhh it was a Sheephead. Thing fought hard for a while then pooped out vintage Sheephead style. A fun battle in a peddle ...more boat. These are way bigger than the WI River Sheepies I’m used to LOL!
I’d love to say, “My first fish on Lake Michigan” but my first fish was a 11” Smallie minutes earlier. My first time out on Lake MI and it was on a peddle boat LOL! ...more I went for a ride to say the least. I’m staying at a resort with my wife for a few days and was politely asked not to bring the boat. Doh! Well I snuck out early morning and got this Classic Great Lakes tank!
A great 4-jump fight on the Plopper, which is why I love it. Hahaha I really did use other stuff today for first hour out but it’s hard not to revert back to top ...more water in August when fishing is tough and you have cloud cover... Another rocky shoreline with a bit of a flat adjacent to very deep swift channel.
No luck on plastics this morning so went top water since there were some clouds. Tried the new 70 size plopper and it is nice. Fatter than 90 and about same length ...more and book size. This helped since it was breezy this morning. Worked well off rocks with current and deep water adjacent.
