Lake Champlain June 3rd-9th

Just back from a week at Champlain fishing the Islands region in Vermont out of the Alburgh Passage. When we arrived on Saturday we headed out to the main lake and found 58 degree water and uncooperative fish. They were still in prespawn, but we stuck a couple nice ones on Keitech Swing Impact. Sunday we looked for warmer water and found a bunch of fish on humps around the Passage and inland Sea. The bite continued into Monday, mainly on soft jerkbaits. Tuesday it rained all day and the temperature barely hit 50 degrees. And that was it for the fishing. Wednesday and Thursday were flat and beautiful, with barely any fish to be found. We hit some weed beds for pike and eventually found some schools of small males moving onto the spawning flats, but it was a frustrating two days. With thunder and wind predicted for Friday, we hit the road rather than brave the elements and returned home.

 

Other than the fishing, the trip went down without a hitch. Good friends, fishable water, no problems with the boat (other than a missing rivet near the waterline in the front that would let water in when we were fishing the front deck...drove us crazy trying to figure out why we'd take water out fishing then it was fine at the dock) and a cabin with no heat = really chilly in the morning. My buddy's Mom who we visited on Tuesday in Burlington made us cherry pie from the tree in back of her house though, and so all was good!
