Just got back from our attempted fishing trip. Me and the wife got to Short stay around 8:30 and started bait fishing. We caught a few white perch and a bluegill and I figured we would leave the dock and go to the locks since I have gotten my bait permit. All the herring at the dam were extremely small and most fell through the net. Started to drift around the point at SS and had just started my second short drift when we caught a 4 pound blue that appeared to be full of eggs. Then came the rain. We went back to the dock and waited it out but when I went back down to attempt for more bait another storm was moving in, so I'm at home watching the late show. The blue we caught is still swimming so she can lay all those eggs. Oh well we will give the weekend a try. I caught a nice yellow perch but I'm hesitant to use them for cut bait cause I never do well with them, Has anyone done well with yellow perch?
