Hit up Fromunda lake with Coffee Joe. A little nippy to start the day, the cold front had a definite effect on the bite. Walked all the way in and checked on the snagging scum. They weren't doing too well and we headed downlake to areas more productive to sport fishing.
i got a 14" smally on 2nd cast but nothing but perch taps for the next hr. Moved a couple times and found the proper mix of cliffs, depth, and little perch.

Joe got a 17" small on a blade while I caught nothing. After an hr. I put on a kasty. 1st cast got a 4.1 lb small and then broke one off and lost another easily the same size.

The bites were very slight I blame the post frontal conditions for that. Also I feel being NOT bass guys the hooks were not set hard enough to get a good hold in the mercury laden beasts.

after a couple small smalls, we moved to another spot and joe landed 3 smalls, broke off a big one and missed several. I got 1 small small and a bunch of little perch.

That was about it, left at 415pm. The piggies have the feed bag on for sure.

Good job on the PIG Smallmouth - that lake is a blast! No toothy critters this time?

I can never get a perch over 5" out of there, they have to be in there don't they?

This is obvious as sh*t, but Ill say it anyway - those Kasty hooks suck and should be replaced with a better hook.

Are they even stocking kokes in there these days?

Nice report by the way.
we asked the koke guys as they were leaving and they all got some.

We caught the bass on the bottom 20-30 ft down working metal as slow as humanly possible.

There are some decent perch in there but they are few and far between. To borrow a phrase from Z, "Too many teeth" in that lake.

I wish I could fish it again b4 it closes on Friday.
