Reel ‘Em In Roadtrip with Lynn Berggren

Ron Kratzer and I fished Sherman Dam Monday evening. Weather was hot with no wind which made fishing tough. Ronnie likes to troll so we drug Shad Rap’s and spinners with leeches along the west side in 14-20 FOW. One crappie and one small walleye was all we could produce. Boats in the area were struggling also as we were,  so no other fish caught in the area.

Tim Shuckman, Dan Scofield and I fished Calamus Wednesday evening. Weather was cloudy with 10-15 mph SE wind. We put in at Nunda Shoals and worked the west side concentrating on 14-18 FOW. Slow drift seemed to be the key using Leeches and crawlers. We boated 3 perch, 3 drum, 4 white bass and approx. 60 walleye. Most were in the 7-14″ range with 10-15 just under the 18″ legal size. Catching fish here is no problem, they just need to grow some.
