The are here, but the bite is slow. I caught 6 yesterday and 1 today. Today was a mix bag where I didn't mind only catching one perch because it was okay in size. The payback for today was that I caught 1 striper and 1 large mouth. They were fun to catch.
I am seeing a lot of schools of fish on the depth finder. They are at the middle of the water column in 20 feet of water. Sometimes in 8 feet to 12 feet down with some bigger fish mixed in the schools. I wonder if the schools are bait fish and they are followed by stripers. It could be something to slow troll through with the yak. My striper was caught by jigging a silver buddy as my kayak was drifting in the wind.
Water Temp: Yesterday it was 40, today it was 42.
Air Temp today was near 72. Yesterday it was in the 60s.
