Morning - Our group today was a family from Avon, NY. Other than some pond hopping there wasn’t much experience catching fish for them. We wore their arms out, and everyone caught the biggest fish of their lives. We were supposed to have the Yankee in for the weekend, but the upcoming forecast wasn’t desirable. Therefore, six of us piled on the Lund.

 

We targeted 8-15’ today. The water was green and natural colors seemed to work best. Behind our Offshore OR12 inline boards our best Bay Rat colors were Ghost Wipe, Ayu, and Mustard. On our Cannon Downriggers we ran 30’ back/5’ down with UV Green Jeans being our best. Our Chinook Divers were fished 10-15’ out. Our best spoon was a Bay Rat 3.5 in Black Flash. However, UV Sea Sick Waddler held its own on the other side.

Afternoon - The second trip for the weekend was with some guys from PA, and everything went back to play again another day. Bay Rat S3’s were the ticket in skinny water. Gold Finger, Ghost Wipe, Ghost Face Killer, and Ayu all took fish 60-100’ behind Offshore OR12 inline boards. Our only downrigger shot was on a DW SS Sea Sick Waddler back 40’ & down 10’. Our Chinook Divers fished 8-12’ back with Bay Rat Lures 3.5’s in Black Flash and Frog.

Nice. What a difference one week makes. Those fish look a lot fatter than your batch last week. 

 

Ya, not sure why the drop backs were so prevalent last weekend.

Interesting to find sunfish and it pairs with some telemetry studies that show browns are like walleye making moves in and out rivers and embayments on daily/nightly forays.

Those browns probably were in Ibay for breakfast.

Yankee -

 

Could you describe the color ayu?  I cannot find it on any lure website.  I am wondering if it is the color of some BayRat Short Shallows I bought at the Niagara Fishing Expo a few years back.

 

Thanks.

Fat nancys was sold out of it the other day when my boy and I were there. Was curious what it looks like as well. Rapala has some lures in ayu i think. Not sure how similar they are though.

It's based off that Rapala
