I am going out Thursday morning instead of Friday. Will start at the water intake and see where that leads, depending on the bite and the water if I dont get any nice perch I will move out to the plugs.

Going to try the Bay tomorrow. Ive not been out since the heat came on. Hoping I can find some walleye but taking a bucket of minnows for perch too. Was doing well on walleye past Spark Plug and to east a bit. Since the heat wave not sure where they are going to be. "C-Theapy standing by on channel 68"

On the Bay today for some perch/walleye action. Changing wind from SW to S to W and reports of 4 footers at 1 and 2 I stayed over to the Linwood side in about 12-13 ft of water looking for perch around the crib. Nothing so we moved a little north until I found some large bait balls on the fish finder we dropped anchor and the perch were there but slow, we got 10 nice ones with 4 between 11-12 inch class. We then broke out the trolling rods and crawlers and quickly got 4 walleye but only 1 keeper. I did get a nice smallie 3.8 lb and 20 inches on a perch rig picture will be on the freshwater photo post.
