Lake conditions; Temp low 40F's (42-44F). Dirt roads in muddy now that we have had a couple days of warmer ambient temperatures. The shore fishing has been great. Winds can hamper some locations but always check out the wind direction before committing to a spot. In general, we always have a good early bite, but we haven't had to get out early in order to release double digits easily. On Tuesday I launched my tube at Christie & worked my way to Wildcat Pt. Released 10 out of 16, 3 were over 22 inches long. Kept one of the 22's which weighed 3 1/2 lbs. All found in 1 to 6 ft of water casting black/red leech pattern flies. Gold/amber wooly buggers are working well too as is purple (I don't use much purple but during a little lull in the bite, the purple turned everything back on again...go figure). Brown leech patterns and minnow patterns are still holding their own....but a little splash of red on anything has been working best for us. Not too many trollers out there now, but there have been a few. Mostly all toplining & doing well.
