Mexico Bay browns 4-1

My good friends Ken Miller, Bill Perks  and I left Ken's house in Preble @ just after 5:00 a.m. Saturday morning, towing his 21' Wellcraft to Mexico Point boat launch.  We got everything loaded and launched the boat by around 6:45, and made a short run West, toward the powerplant, and set up in about 10' of water.  We ran 2 inline boards per side, 2 downriggers, and a chute rod.  Went 9 for 9 on browns and was off the lake by noon.  Best colors were black and silver spoons, and black and gold stickbaits.  We were fishing fairly clear water, from 10'-18'.  Mostly cookie cutter 3-5 pound fish, with one nice 10 pounder.  Water temps we had were 37.2-37.8 F. Effective speeds were 2.2 to 2.4 MPH SOG on sonar.  All fish were stuffed with 2-3" Gobies.

Probably Eastern end, since it will be closer.  I will go back and pull my boat out here around mid May.  I want to check out Lake George and Lake Champlain some on this go around.  I want to check out those Landlocked Atlantics, and maybe even some Striper fishing on the Hudson river, this trip. :)

Yes I agree on the LL I've said time & time again that the LL are the most beautiful looking fish that swims these lakes, but they are not over abundant in LakeO, I want to figure out which lake is best for a mounter size!! I'm a hard core walleye guy but must admit the eye's aren't as beautifully marked as a LL. Maybe you know which lake is best??? If your staying on the eastern end I will make sure we meet up before your back to the Dakota's PAP

Thanks for the report!  Great catch!  Heading up this weekend. Saturday is looking like a camp work day due to wind forecast, but Sunday looks promising.  Would you say you had more action off the boards or on the riggers?  I know typically the boards out produce the riggers this time of year.  Just wondering.  Thanks in advance.

Big fish came on the riggers, but boards produced many more fish.  Popped a couple on the chute rod, as well.
