Fishing has been a bit hard on the big pond... they've been turning off and on. All 'eyes caught this past weekend were caught between 20 and 25 feet on the edges of drops. Friday was our best day where we boated about 14 and kept our limit. Saturday was tough for us... we tried everything and caught 2 on jigs, nothing on cranks. Early morning Sunday we caught a couple more and then nothing the rest of the day. Very tough. Smallies were hitting in shallow water above rockpiles, if you are into smallies, try about 8 feet.
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
