Was on Hemlock 2 weekends ago (5/3) in the yak for a few hours.  Surface temps were 46-48.   Ran a shallow program, no takers.   

 

Gonna try to get out as well this weekend if the weather holds.

Sorry for the late report -

 

I hit Hemlock both mornings (5/17 & 5/18) and here's my results.

 

5/17 - Launched from the North launch @ 6 AM and headed to the west shoreline. Ran down to south of the bluffs in 30-60 FOW.  

 

Fished marks and bait when I saw them.  Lots of marks near the bottom in 50 FOW.   Water temps were 48-50 on the surface.

 

I top lined a mix of humdingers, flutter spoons and small suttons with only a small mouth bass caught.

 

Also had 3 color and 4 color lead cores out.  

The 4 had a homemade cowbell-type flasher with a night crawler on a bare hook.
The 3 color I ran a mix of smelt pattern trolling flies.

 

Landed and released  3 Lakers ; 18, 21.5 and 23 inches.  (2 on the night crawler 1 on a trolling fly)

 

5/18 - Launched from North launch @ 6:30 and again headed for west shore.   Fog was pretty thick the first hour or so.  

 

Based on the marks that I saw Saturday, I stayed in the area of 50 FOW and only got a far south as the white building, as I kept circling and fishing the marks.    

 

I ran a down rigger with a mix of green & green-black spoons near the bottom and a "cheater" rod up higher depending on where marks were.

 Cheater used a mix of flutter spoons and smelt pattern trolling flies.

 

Landed and released 2 lakers; 21.5 and 22 inches.  both from the bottom spoons.
