Fished the Lake

A couple of the Bosch Boys are up from Detroit getting things organized for the upcoming winter test season. With fishing not like it should be on the river, four of us; Tom, Steve, George and myself went to Zipple Bay on Tuesday afternoon. We left at 4:00 p.m. after they finished work and it must have been near 5:00 by the time we got to the lake. We anchored up in about twenty feet of water and the bite was good from the start. We used jigs and minnows; both chubs and frozen shiners. It didn’t seem to make any difference what color jig or which minnows we used, as we all caught fish. We lost count of the number of fish caught in the one and one half  hours that we fished, but we kept eighteen; twelve nice saugers and six walleyes. Numerous small sauger and walleye were released. The wind kept getting stronger and we were running out of daylight so we called it quits or we probably would have gotten our limits.
