December 29th:

Well, we ended 2022 with a BANG! Thanks to Dave and crew for taking us up on today's charter. They had all the action they could handle the first few hours. Lots of small fish with medium and bigs sprinkled in made for a great catch.
We launched at the Genesee River around 7am and dodged ice bergs in the river headed out to the lake. We set up over 25' of water and had fish going on the setup, so we stayed in that 15-25' the rest of the day. Sneaking into 10-12 didn't get us much and the Hummingbird side imaging showed schools of fish in that 15-20' range. We ran a typical spring spread with two Cannon downriggers, two Chinook divers, and six inline Offshore OR12 boards flat lining stickbaits. Our best colors today were Bay Rat Jailbird and Ayu.





January 2nd:

Some local guys jumped on the open date we had today due to this unseasonably warm weather. They weren't disappointed!
We launched around 7am and had lines going in shortly thereafter. Again, our best water depth was 15'. We snuck into 9' at times and that didn't really work for us. We also slid out to 30' at times and did some fish in that 20-25' range. We ran six inline Offshore OR12 boards with flat lined Bay Rat SS & LS. Two Cannon downriggers and two Chinook divers. Both of those pulling spoons. Best Bay Rat's today were Citric Shad, Stairway to Heaven, and Ayu. Spoons that took fish were Dreamweaver SS's in Rod Father, Rosta Goose, and Wonderbread.
We caught lots, and I mean lots, of small fish today in that 12-15" range. Nonetheless, it felt great to start the New Year off doing what we love! Hoping to get out this weekend if the winds let us. Let us know if you're interested.
