Fishing Report – Thursday, August 11th

The trolling bite is going on with lead core in varying depths – 22′-35′ or 36′. Use the Perch color, shadling #5, river rockers #3 and #5. While Perch has been Mike’s best color, the blue and silver is working for people as well.

Each day is different right now, some days they are on the top, some days they are on the sides. Use a 20′ leader and troll 2 mph – 4 mph max.

The other bite going is shallow from 4′-12′ of water mainly when the wind is blowing or in the evening. The fish range in size from 14-16″ at these depths. Mike recommends a 32 oz jig.

Mike had 9 limits in a row these past couple weeks and is fishing the MTT tournament this weekend.
