    Default Huron 4/5/22

    Got to Huron around 7, headed north till we hit 42 ft, caught a nice one in 10 minutes. Then it took a bit to get the second one, turned around to where we started and they were on fire, couldn’t keep lines in the water, everything on bandits 80’ back unassisted. We could have had our limit sooner, but had a idiot who saw us catching and decided he need to be close, had the big boards at least 150’ out each side , came right at us and missed our outside board by 5’. That wasn’t good enough, he had to make a circle and cut in front of us and run the board right over ours, and behind our boat. After a lot of choice words and 10 minutes of trying to get him out of our lines we went on. There wasn’t another boat within a half mile of us, just this idiot. Bottom line, done and back to the dock by 10:30. Big fish, a couple of 7 lbs, the rest 5-6 lbs. Great day on the lake.

    Thanks Johnn. So when driving N to 42 of water, what makes you think this is where I should try? Im new to this and lake fishing doesnt seem to have the obvious structure, current, brush etc. that makes sense to me. Its like, heres a giant flat dish and somewhere on it is a hungry school of fish. Whats it look like to make you stop? How long do you try there before moving on? Ive watched 100 videos and short of Ross Robertson driving 30mph and spotting schools at speed (which isnt a real option for me), I dont feel like Ive learned step one - how to find fish.

    What we typically do is read the posts from the day before and get a idea of the depth to o start with. Then just get close to the depth and slow way down and see if we can mark a fish. I cant mark fish doing 30 mph, but at 5 mph I can see fish, or speed up and go another mile in any direction until I do. Also look for a pack of boats, if there is a bunch of boats in a area, we stop short or past them to see if we can mark something. I dont like to fish in a pack, if you catch one, they will start crowding you. If most of the boats are headed west, get out a half a mile ahead of them, I dont like trolling behind someone. If I dont get one in say 20 minutes, I move either a bit deeper or shallower.
