Got there @ 6:30 AM. Worked the SW side of the lake all the way to a lil past the dog beach w/clouser minnow (I wish)... Ok just kidding, I was using a Gulp 3" minnow in chartreuse. That whole time, I had two hits, one of which I set the hook like a little girl and missed while the other was a peck (trout?). Overall, nothing...

Came back and fished the W side for a few around 9AM. From my perspective while in waders standing about 3 ft deep in water which was about 80 or so yards from shore trying not to "find the channel".... I saw that the bait dunking action is not too shabby for wipers. It's picked up considerably since last week. Ran into forum member, gk, and had the pleasure of fishing and chatting with the fella for a bit there. I caught 1 on a LC Pointer in rainbow trout color and he caught 1 too using something similar (sorry, I forget easily). Must have been the same school of fish because we caught these two almost back to back then someone hit the switch and it was all over.

Not too windy and water temps according to folks who run the park was 52 as of Tuesday. I'm willin to bet by today it would have climbed to round mid 50's already. Wiper are hittin typical baits off the bottom in shallow water and keep in mind that's when they DO hit. They didn't quite prefer anything moving today except for the two I seen caught by gk and I. BTW main inlet doesn't seem like it has any current going into lake. Overall, it was a good um... Friday. Saturday will be a circus at Union so I'll wait for the weekdays for my once again, feeble attempt. Hopefully that water's running when I'm out again.

The ol' lady strikes again. She got two in the morn on mussells off the bottom. From there on all I heard was, "Oh yeah, I'm better than you Mr. Fancyarse" for the next 3 hrs including drive home... Which makes me happy. She also caught a fish eating bird which attacked her brother while trying to free the bird. I'll have to find the pic of the bird and post it.

Oh yeah, I also caught someone's freshly lost UglyStick with rig and everything. It's now up for auction on Ebay J/K... A friend already took ownership.

Nice effort 1eyered! We launched on Union for the first time with our new rig. We spotted lots of fish deep on electronics and wasted lot's of time trying to get them to go with no luck. We ended up catching one nice wiper in under 5 ft of water. We just followed the weak wind and focussed on the shallows. We lost many others - all on pearl kalin's grubs and 1/8 oz jigs. I'll have to try the bait thing next time.

It looks like the girlfriend is going to have a better year than you again my friend. I guess it is more than beginner's luck.

Nice Report 1eyered !!! I was thinking of hitting Union on Sunday, but may go Monday to avoid the crowd. Hey don't worry about being outfished. I've been after a master angler Perch all year. I've caught a ton, but the biggest I've gotten...10 and 3/4's. Wife goes out w/ me the other day, and gets an 11 incher. :mad:
Again, great report.

Nice fish Lallee,

Too bad you did not catch any, I was wondering how did an ugly cuss like you get a pretty lady like that? Must be a mercy kind of thing.

But back on topic, sounds like a nice day, I'm jealous......

Not only that... It's also because I work for Ken Broeren and he just pays me truck loads of money. :eek:
