Debbie Garrett with a good one. Welcome back Debbie.
The wind has been coming from the northwest and is keeping the temperatures down to the low to mid 70's. When it shifts to the south it will start to get very warm and the water will warm fast. The top water bite for stripers, bass, hybrids and white bass starts before sunrise and does not last very long. It should be getting longer by now. The surface temperature is in the low 70's and the water clarity is perfect for fishing. There is not as much pollen but there is still some moss for some reason. The moss sure is not caused by elevated water temperatures. I am not seeing nearly as many shad next to the bank so their spawn must be nearing the end but there are several near Blackburns Dock. Martins and Linius are back and crappie fishing. Jack and Debbie Garrett are trolling umbrellas and catching stripers and hybrids. Blackburns still has three cabins empty so come on down. Jim, Marlene and Michael are also back and are working on those pan fish. Kent and Sheila Myers just checked in. Scuba Steve caught a giant flathead and a 5-lb. channelcat on his trot line and released them in Tom Kelly's trophy pond. Bink is on the walleye and Harvey is on the crappie. Life is good and the weather is better and the garden and my chicks are growing. Who could ask for more?1-800-635-0526
