Fishing with Steve Gulas and Jim 7/18/19
by Capt Juls on 07/18/19
As I headed down the highway towards the other end of town, I realized I had forgotten to put a cooler in the boat before I left. "Ugh", I thought. I didn't have time to go back home and grab one, so I texted Steve to ask if he could bring his. He could, and said it already had ice in it, so that was a relief. I was meeting them at Big Bopper's at 4:45, and they were right on time.
We launched out of Mazurik's at 5:30am, and headed to the north side of Kelly's. I marked fish from the time we left the launch to the time we got up to the line east of Middle. They are everywhere....just choose a spot and fish them. You don't have to make a long run to catch them right now, so if you can save some gas....you might as well. ;)
Nothing new on the program...other than the crankbaits didn't want to produce behind the Off Shore boards this time. All our fish came on the dipsies with spoons or the black/chrome Ripplin Redfin. The zero setting was at 44 and 55 and the three setting was at 65...speed was 2.3-2.5 mph.
We had our 18 fish by 8:21am. It was getting hot, and buggy, so the guys decided that they had enough fun for the morning. :)
I didn't schedule anything for tomorrow, knowing it was going to be a scorcher, and I reschedule my Chicago peeps for Saturday to a new date in August, for which they thanked me, so I'll be staying in my nice air conditioned house for the next couple of days. Be back out on Sunday.
