    I fished MIL today from 7:00am-noon. Water ranged from 81-83 degrees and there was no current. Wind was out of the northeast and light.

    Yesterday it took me a while to pattern what was working on MIL and I only caught 9 fish yesterday. Today I was able to hit the water running and found fish immediately in the same depth ranges as yesterdy. No big ones, just small channels and blues, but I managed to catch 19 fish in five hours of fishing.

    For whatever reasons, the fish were in a 29-32 range of water depth adjacent to the main lake channel. There were also perch in that same depth range. Bait was cut white perch I caught in the lake and bream. All were caught drifting .50-.70mph.
