Yeah, I was there. Fishing wasn't that great, but we did okay. Caught some walleyes, crappies, perch, northerns and sunnies. A wide variety of stuff yet nothing worth keeping. Some of the sunnies were the jumbo variety, but not really worth it if you only catch a few of them. The 'eyes were all under 12" and not worth keeping. Northerns? I don't keep them.
We used mostly leeches and fatheads on various colored hooks. Almost all fish were caught in less then 8 feet. Some on the river, some in the big lake.
As an aside... it sure was a beautiful weekend. Lots of colors starting in the trees. It was perfect for fishing. I really needed to unwind and it was just the ticket. I think the trees will be peaking in a week or so. Boy... I sure do love fall!
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
