Ibay 9/29

Recommended Posts

Did Port Bay yesterday.  Terrible.  Water is still too warm.  67deg yesterday.  This weeks rain and dropping temps will get things going.

This time of year the water temp is the key. When the big lake turns over, it forces them in for short spurts of time throughout September. Last year, we really did not find any in the bay until temps were in the upper 50’s around mid month. I did find them last year in Fairhaven for the first two weeks of October and also Erie. Kept us busy until they showed up locally.

Thanks!  

Never trying for peach before does time of day play a big factor?

I think they usually pull one set and then leave the other set in for a few weeks longer....if my memory serves me.

They leave one dock in for a long time.

There were two boats south of Densmore, and one toward the deep hole at the North end, when I crossed the bay bridge yesterday about 11 AM.  It is that time of year!

We fished the bay yesterday from 7:30 till 11:00. Plenty of action on the small perch all morning. Finally found some good keepers later on our last stop. We caught one and it puked up a couple of 2" alewives. I didn't realize that any alewives spent time in the bays. Never thought that the perch were eating them either. Anyone ever hear of this?

Huh, never knew that. I knew about the gizzard shad but not the alewives. These must have been from the spring spawn.
