GOOD MORNING,

YESTERDAY WAS HOT AND HUMID WITH AN AFTRENOON THUNDRSTORM THAT DROPPED SOME NEEDED RAIN AND ROLLED THROUGH AND GONE IN ABOUT 2 HRS. WE HAD A FEW REPORTS THAT AFTER THE RAIN THE FISHING PICKED UP AND EVEN HAD REPORT AOF A FEW WALLEYE TAKEN NEAR ORLEANS PARK..

TODAY WE ARE LOOKING AT CLEAR SUNNY SKIES WITH A HIGHS OF NEAR 80 NO RAIN FORCASTED TODAY. THE RAIN IS WHAT WAS NEEDED TO GET THAT NEXT GOOD PUSH OF BASS THROUGH THE RIVER , BE ASSUREDTHERE ARE STILL MANY WHITE BASS IN THE RIVER . SATURDAY, SUNDAY AND MONDAY WE SAW COOLERS AND STRINGERS FULL OF WHITE BASS, AND AS YOU KNOW THEY JUST DONT DISAPEAR OVER NIGHT.

UNDER THE IDEAL SPAWNING CONDITIONS WHITE BASS ARE EXTREAMLY PROLIFIC, ONE ADULT FEMALE CAN LAY MORE THAN 500,000 EGGS. HOWEVER WHITE BASS POPULATIONS SOMETIME FLUCTUATE BROADLY FROM YEAR TO YEAR, ITS KNOWN THAT UNSTABLE WEATHER DURING THE PEAK OF SPAWNING CAN CAUSE FEMALES TO CEASE EGG LAYING THEREBY BRINGING THE SPAWN TO AN ABRUPT HALT AND CAUSING A SHARP REDUCTION IN THE NUMBER OF THAT YEARS AGE CLASS OF YOUNG FISH.

. REMEMBER NOT TO GET STUCK ON ONLY ONE METHOD OF FISHING, FOR EXAMPLE IF THEY ARENT BITING A MINNOW SWITCH TO A SPINNER OR A LEAD HEAD WITH A TWISTER TAIL ,SOMETHING WITH A FLASH TO ATTRACT THEIR ATTENTION AND TRIGGER THAT BITE.

WHITE BASS ISNT THE ONLY FISH IN THE RIVER, ITS A GOOD TIME OF THE YEAR TO GO AFTER SOME CRAPPIE, SMALLMOUTH ,CATFISH AND ALSO THROW A CAROLINA RIG OUT AND SEE IF YOU CAN TAKE HOME A WALLEYE OR TWO .

*NOTE*- WE ARE CURRENTLY STOCKING LEECHES FOR BAIT AS PER CUSTOMER REQUESTS! LEECHES ARE AN EXELLENT BAIT USED ON MANY FRESHWATER LAKES, RIVERS AND STREAMS. WEED WANDERING WALLEYE AND SMALLMOUTH BASS SELECTIVLY DINE ON LEECHES. VERY FEW ANGLERS REALIZE HOW VALUABLE THIS BAIT ITEM CAN BE. THE LATE SPRING AND SUMMER IS THE BEST TIME TO FISH WITH LEECHES BECAUSE THEIR POPULATION IS ON THE DECLINE. BY MID-SUMMER MOST OF THE ADULT LEECHES HAVE DEPOSITED COCOONS AND DIED OFF SO WHEN A BAIT LEECH ENTERS THE FISHES ENVIRIONMENT(PARTICULARLY WALLEYES) THEY ARE USUALLY ATTACKED. ALSO IN THE WARMER WEATHER A LEECH WILL WIGGLE MORE BELOW A BOBBER THAN A WORM. THEY CAN ALSO CAN BE USED WHEN DRIFTING OR TROLLING AND ARE GREAT IN LAKE ERIE.

WE HAVE A FULL SELECTION OF ALL THE LURES AND BAIT NEEDED FOR YOU TO HAVE A SUCCESSFULL DAY ON THE RIVER.
