Head out around 1, after bending my mower blade to a 90 degree angle on a stump.

It seemed a wee bit windy around Turkey point.

I headed just north of TP, and armed with new bag of bloodworms, got started. Between the strong north wind, and the outgoing tide, i was drifting at about 1 knot. It took me no time at all to catch a whopper. Yep, I managed to hook a a crab pot line, and was it ever a fighter. Unfortunately, with the fast drift, and being out solo, I ended up snapping lines before i could try and get the boat up current, and try to work them free.

I moved a bit north to "2". Lots of perch, some decent sized. Hardly any spot. After a bit, I headed up north of Red point, and figured I'd drift down the edge. More perch. no other real action. VERY crowded around Red point, I think tournament fishermen. I tried to keep my distance, and moved around them to the south, and resumed my drift.

I picked up a few spot. I was a little discouraged by the perch to spot ratio, fearing our little spotted friends are moving out. Landed a nice YELLOW perch, around 10 inches.

Zero live line activity. A couple hits on a rattle trap, but nothing that I was able to get close enough to have a look.

I had pretty much the same experience on the Bohemia, excpet for the wind. Nothing to show but a 10 inch yellow perch. Elk was muddy looking so stayed on the Bo

Sorry to hear about the mower....hate when that happens:wacko:

We got back to B-Wood around 4 on Sat after racing and Scout Car Wash ....

Went to launch the boat and there was no water:eek:, 2 hrs before low tide and the N winds had the water pushed South..would have had to put the truck tires off the ramp..no way..walked up the beach abit and tossed the rattle traps & Top water...nada, lotta grass..lotta wind....walked back & watched Penn State,,

Woke up Sunday, same thing, no water at the ramp, packed up, went home, stacked a cord of firewood and had a nice fire all day....

This coming weekend looks rainy....I'll try and get out Sat??.... I'm at the Eagles on Sunday.

We caught one Yellow Perch all year and 2 were caught in the same day, cool....good job guys.....neat fish.

We were out on the NE river in capt hooks CC shamrock. It was a bit wet that day... We found calm water on the north side of the flats, but no fish. We found huge schools of perch & bigger fish at the barges... I jigged for hours & hours without a hit. I figured the cold front had em shutdown. Hook has a FF that cost about 3 grand... we could see the fins on the rock under the boat...

Friday night, I picked up about 6 rock off of Carp point on topwater before heading to the goose to pick up a load...

Thanks for the post guys. I was hoping to get out this weekend but I had the same problem as Mike. No water at the marina, north wind had it blown the heck out. Turned around went back to the house and knock out a honey do off the long list. :yes: Cool to hear some Yellow Perch were caught good job guys!
