Really nice morning to be out on the water.   Started on the East side working shallow with flatlines.  A few boats around but no fish so decided to go to the West side.  Dropped the rigger deep and set a dipsey for the troll across and Bam, Bam a double of lake trout.  Back to work with the big board in shallow but once again, no takers, and this time couldn't blame the boat traffic as just one kayak in the area.  Sun was getting higher and what chop was on the water earlier was fading so slid out deeper.  An hour later still nothing.   Decided to cross over again and out in the middle another laker nailed the dipsey fly.  So stayed out over 300 fow working back to the launch and kept catching lakers on the dipsey while other rods stayed quiet.   It all added up to a relaxing morning and a great dinner of grilled lemon pepper lake trout.  Happy Easter everyone.

Great report, I was looking for you out there. Surface water temp dropped and minimal 'colored' water led to a swing and a miss for us on the browns and salmon, targeted the top of the water column in the skinny water with a 9 rod spread. Picked up two chunker lakers, 8 & 9 lbs in 11 fow, full of bait fish, spitting up perch.

Glad to hear you found some shallow fish.  We covered a large area of water and temps never varyed from 40 degrees.  Never saw any colored water, just the opposite.  Could read a newspaper on the bottom in 20 fow or less.
