charity's?
« on: September 23, 2008, 10:44:56 PM »

anybody want to hit the charitys thursday? i have the boat and most of the goodies to fish just don't like heading out that way by myself. the weather is looking good with winds around 10knots so the waves should be 1-2.

It's been dirty water out there all year, it was clearing up until that hurricane hit us.  Good luck, let us know how you do.  Here is a link of daily pics to check the water clarity.  BTW the leaves just turned up there so they should be going pretty good up shallow.

Didn't go to charity because of water clarity.  Fished the lake huron shoreline on the thumb, clear water but fish were inactive.  Fished boulders in 2-8ft, lots of follows on spinnerbaits and caught some of the followers on tubes.  All were between 2-2.5lbs, and they were very very fat and full of bait.  The fish are usually really easy in the area I was in but they were just spooky today.  All of the fish were black when they followed, but once they saw the boat they lost their color and were gone.  I'm hoping this cool weather gets them going, I've been looking forward to the fall bite.

cr, i'm not sure how long they hold fish. we were fishing for perch with no luck so i started looking for some bass and found them in about 5-10fow. they looked to be feeding on something. there was a bunch of bait fish but realy couldn't get a good look at any of them. we caught most on those football head jigs with a double tail trailer in dark green.

A 6lb 7oz is a monster on the bay!  My biggest to date is 6lbs 4oz, also a fall fatty.  I can post the pic, just email it to me.  My email is in my profile.

first the boat size. yes you can get to the islands with a small boat. you will need to watch the wave report and the wind gust report. if the wind gust are 15mph+ is iffy. 20mph+ wind gust will have 3-4+ waves. pick the days that have 1-2 ft or less wave report and wind gust less then 15mph and have fun, you will be fine. as for bait i throw tub jigs, football jigs, wacky jacks/ senko's wacky rigged, crank bait in sexy shad has been good and spinner baits any of the colors as long as it's white lolol. hope this helps. we my be able to hook up and go out some day. i have a 18ft lund that's pretty good even in 4-5 fters

Like wacky said pick the nice days.  Also know your boats range and bring extra gas if necessary.  The best launch is Bayshore just before you get to bayport, your about 11 miles to big charity.  Caseville is only 9 miles but it's deeper rougher water exposed to the east.  No need to go to the charitys though, your cottage is about a half mile from some pretty good smallmouth fishing.  My parents cottage is about 3/4 mile west of champaine on taylor, so I've grown up fishing that whole area.  It can be hard to find the fish but quality is there, a 20lb bag isn't out of the question.
