As usual your fishing report is spot-on Wayne. My 9 year old son, my brother and his wife, and I took your advice and fished the green water in the back of several Canyons yesterday and caught 5 species of fish. We initially started trolling for stripers about 10:30am and had limited success so we started using bass fishing tactics and casting crank baits towards the shore in 25 to 30 feet of water and started catching Smallmouth immediately.
We picked up several stripers and a 3lb hen walleye using this same tactic. Action slowed, so we moved to the next canyon and started throwing crank baits and soft plastics around chunk rock in 10 to 30 ft of water and picked up some more smallies and a few large mouth. As the afternoon shadows began to appear on the water we found a school of stripers feeding in about 30 ft of water and caught them on about everything we cast. We found that the medium to small fish were much healthier and gave better fillets than the large fish. Thanks again for a very accurate and specific report that allowed us to know where and how to catch fish and spend our short one day trip catching rather than searching.
