Not bad for a rookie. Erie report for 5-8-11
« on: May 08, 2011, 08:59:15 AM »

Well, I would say that yesterday was a success. We got to the ramp around 7:00 am. Winds were south west, waves around a foot. Water temp was around 52-53 degrees. We headed out to the very north east point of Kelly's Island and caught 8 or 10 in ten feet of water. The best one went 4lbs 8oz.  Then we headed inside the bowl and caught a few more in about 6 to 8 fow. Our last spot was the northeast point of south bass island. My cousin caught 2 nice ones there. I was the sheephead king out there. I never would think that you would catch that many sheephead. Everything we caught was on a tube. Watermelon with red flake, and xtreme bass tackle st. clair goby. I tried cranks and drop shots and couldn't get bit. For only being my second time out there, I would say I did allright. 8)

   Looks like you did great to me !!!!  Nice job.  Not sure if anything I told you helped, shoot I'm not even sure where the bowl is at.  lolol   I tried the Extreme Bass Tackle St. Clair Golby tube last week on St. Clair and really liked it.  So did the smallies  :)

Great day guys. Last year all I could find at Kelleys were 12 in bass. So maybe there are some better fish out there this year. Once again great job.
