There are loons all over the place around Big M, most I have ever seen.
The fishing was pretty darn good today, if you like numbers. I caught a little over 50 bass, mostly spots. Had 10-12 keepers, again mostly spots, but one LM and a couple of keeper sized smallies. Main bait was a 3.3 Keitech on a 1/4 oz head, and a few on a 2.8 Keitech on a 1/8 oz head. Best smallie came on the 2.8. Sunny, rocky banks with wind on them were best, fish were from 5 feet to 25 feet, sweet spot was around 10 FOW. Maybe 10 of my fish came on the Ned, the Keitech was just a better bait today. Ned fish were squirrely today, missed about a dozen that seemed to be hooked but would just get off after a second or two. Sometimes this happens with the Ned, it's aggravating.
Slow rolling that Keitech just off the bottom.
WT 51-54, water is murky, maybe 3 feet of viz.
A couple of non-targeted species that liked the Keitech and the Ned.
