Fishing with John and Seth Feldhausen 6/5/19by Capt Juls on 06/06/19
Writing this one a day late....I'm going to make this short since it was my birthday yesterday and I didn't want to do anything after I got off the water, except get in my fuzzy robe and relax!
The morning started out crazy. We launched at 6am and caught 7 walleye out in front of the shipping dock west of the lighthouse before we had to go back in, due to a thunderstorm approaching the area.
We loaded out as the rain poured down, and headed back to Big Bopper's for some coffee and hot chocolate while we waited for the second storm behind it to pass too. Once it passed, we headed out again, since the radar showed nothing coming until the afternoon.
To the north we went again...same as the day before...same program and everything. See previous day's report for that info.
Then, we hit the same perch spot where we caught some the day before, which was up near Sugar Island, between Middle Bass and North Bass islands.
The highlight of the day was when I heard John say to Seth, "Whatch's got there? Another Sheepshead?" And, when I turned around, there was Seth with a big 14 1/4 inch perch hanging in front of him. "Holy Moly!", I said. "That's a huge perch! That's what we call a "Fish Ohio"", I said. "What's that?", Seth asked. So, I explained how Ohio gives out pins for trophy fish that measure a certain size, or bigger, if you fill out a form on the ODNR website and submit it. :)
It was a fun way to spend my birthday, but I was too tired to write yesterday, so I took the afternoon off as more thunderstorms rolled through.
