Will keep it short. Hopefully, the Drum King, Pike Master, D. Kimmel will write a more detailed report.
I usually donít like to hit LSC on weekends but since this was the only day I could get out there for a few weeks, I had to give it a try. Fortunately the big boat traffic wasnít nearly as bad as I thought it would be.
Dan was showing his usual impatience and switched techniques quite often. He was doing okay using a variety of lures including tubes, spybaits, dropshots, and a crankbait, I think.
Dan also hooked up with a couple of his nemesis fish, Freshwater Drum. He says he hates catching them but he must love it since he catches so many. They do fight hard.
Dan was doing okay. I wasnít catching much. I tried a crank...nothing. A tube...nothing. Then I started throwing a dropshot. Bingo. Didnít catch a ton but started catching them fairly consistently. Easily my best was 5lbs. 2oz. Danís bigíun was 5lbs. 9oz.
We fished west of the Belle River hump the whole time. It was somewhat slow but there was enough action to make it fun. There were a couple of boats nearby that seemed to have the fish dialed in better as we saw them catch fish more often. Seeing that told me that fish were there even though we had some slow periods.
Also, the sky was hazy and the water was a little churned up, so it was almost impossible to see color variations in the bottom much less the bottom in detail.

Nice report. I went this morning from 6:30-10:30 with my brother and our buddy. We stopped at a couple spots along the way but spent the majority of our time on the Belle River Hump. It was pretty slow. We only caught 7 or 8 combined, with a bonus walter. Throwing tubes, dropshots, and jerkbaits. A pretty strong south wind developed early in the morning so we had a pretty good drift going and definitely covered some water. Still having a very hard time locating and staying on fish in deeper water during this summer pattern.
