I'm in if I'm not in Montana.  I need to decide whether I am going the week before or after august 26 - or both weeks.  The 26th is a family reunion and celebration of my grandmothers 90th bday.

We fished there Tuesday and the lake is a Stinky Nasty Mess of Dead weeds in the areas where frogging would be fun.  The upriver portion of the lake seemed lifeless.   Guess unless someone has a better idea for a lake we just cancel it.  I hope to not have to go back to Kent this year.  Sad what they have done to that lake.

A VERY good chance with my new job, I won't have to work weekends, at least for a while. I'm in no matter where we go.

Guess it's up to the group.  I posted what I did after fishing it.  Who's in.

Well... I was 'in' but I'm not real excited if the lake isn't set up right now very well for hollow body froggin' ?? Don't relish a day of throwing frogs with no action... Just going by a few recent fishing reports since I haven't been there this year.

I'm not sure off the top of my head about any other lakes in SE Michigan that have a lot of froggy cover??

What about Portage Lake Chain (Pinckney)? There's a bass tournament (a club I think with 10 boats) listed on Saturday, but nothing listed on Sunday.

Might be going there Wednesday for a boat ride up to Zukey Lake for lunch.  Will see what it looks like.   Only on it one time about 10 years ago.

Rick, my grandson and I fished Kent yesterday. We didn't really see any of the stinky mess that was reported, but the fishing was VERY slow. This was not the Kent lake of lore. We fished some topwater and Rick caught one pike. Most of the fish (pike) were caught on spinner baits. I did manage one keeper bass on a spinner bait. Only one other short bass caught under the bridge all day. I don't know what happened to Kent lake during the 3 years I haven't fished it, but we couldn't find em. I'd be happy to try Portage or any other lake. I'm not real keen on spending another $20 on Kent.

I haven't been on the boards much lately, but why not return the frog event to that lake in the Lansing area that we had it at a few years ago?

My club is fishing Portage lake on Saturday, we are doing a team tournament so that's why it is listed as 10 boats.
I won't be able to fish back to back days this week, so I'm out with the date change.

Cruised from Portage lake to Zukey Lake.   Not a lot of frog water along the way.   There is some in the river but not a lot.   

No idea about lake Ovid.   

Guess we just cancel it.

Ok, so out of everyone who had planned to fish this on Sunday, who wants to just go fishing and meet up? Maybe some lake that has water access to food for lunch? I have new sonars to play with and I promised a buddy some fishing. It would be nice if others wanted to go too.
