Fishing with Ken and Doug 9/10/17by Capt Juls on 09/10/17
Hit Hi Way Bait for minnows and ice, before meeting my second Wisconsin crew this week, at Big Bopper's for a hearty breakfast. Ken Groeschel and his friend, Doug, came down to do some perch fishing with me.
We headed out of Mazurik's at 6:45, and headed north to start the morning. We set up, near the line, and had fish coming in right away.
I thought for sure we would be done with our 90 in just a few hours, because of how good they were biting right away. But, that was not to be. Shortly after the 15th one went in the box the east wind picked up, and the bite slowed way down......Grrrrr!
I haven't had an "up and down" bite at all this season yet, and it's making me crazy....double Grrrrr! lol
We stayed there for a couple hours... and, when we had a little over one ticket in the box, we decided to make a move to the west side of the islands to try the lee side of them.
Long story short, because I'm tired and out of time tonight....we ended the day with 83 perch, and my crew and I were happy. The grade of fish was good too. The fish cleaners weighed them in at 28 pounds. :)
The three of us are fishing again tomorrow. The wind forecast is out of the east again, but with less velocity, so maybe they will be biting better again in the morning. We shall see....
