    Hey fellas, It looks like I will be going to Lake Erie on the 17th. I have been reading very hopeful things about the hot water discharge at the DTE Monroe plant. According to In-fisherman it is one of the overlooked "hot spots". NPI Since reading that in the mag I have contacted a few people and read some on the web. It sounds very promising, especially since it is still cold. It sounds like the fish stack up pretty heavy until summer hits. It is supposed to start warming next week so maybe they will be on the feed.

    Does anyone have any knowledge or ideas? Anything to make the trip a more probable success would be appreciated.

    Thanks, Steve

    We are going in with a boat. We will be using crawlers, shrimp, and cut sucker so we will see what is working. Is there one particular spot that seems to pay off better?
