Fished mid-lake post-frontal conditions Monday afternoon with F&F. The day started off slow as we looked for crappie in the back of a creek. We found dozens of beds that were mostly empty with a few unwilling participants with lockjaw. By noon we moved to a wind blown point and marked numerous 30 lb class stripers (and dozens of schoolies) in 20-24 FOW. Almost immediately we started hooking up and had multipe doubles. Most of the active stripers were schoolies, but Fins did manage to hook and break off a 30lb plus striper on a brushpile during the chaos of a double hookup. The 5 lb plus bass in the photo came from 16 FOW near brush. The stripers, walleye, and bass were all schooled together and were feeding on several large shad balls. We caught 7 short walleye in 2 to 16 FOW from 16 to 17.5". Overall great day on the water.
