Ok I am starting to feel like Rend Lake is my favorite fishing hole. I decided to play a little hooky from work today to get some fishing in without being hit by a ton of wakes from huge boats and jetskis. Dillon and I headed out from the Gun Creek ramp at about 6am friday morning. The wind was not being very friendly, barely could get any kind of drift going at all. By 7:30 neither one of us had landed a fish. We decided to go under the 154 bridge and head toward the marina. We started drifting just about 200yrds or so from shore, still not much wind. Dillon caught one that weighed about a pound or so..nothing to get excited about, so we moved. I watched the water to find a channel more toward the middle ( no depth finder), have to do it the old fashoned way. Once we got into a decent drift the fish started hitting, and I mean it almost became more like work than a day off. We had 5 poles in the water all baited with Garlic Shrimp on Brians drift rig, and most of the time all poles had fish on, or were about to. In roughly 2 hours we landed 30 fish with the biggest weighing in at about 7# (Dillons Fish). The spot we were fishing was almost dead in the middle of Gun Creek and the marina, if you have a Rend lake map the spot would be just between Campers point and point one, over by Sandusky. Ill be back out there tomorrow, hope to see someone I know. The only reason we quit was because the Livewells were both too full to keep fish alive, and I didn't want dead fish....Another point, the fish were full of Japenese beetles, and I mean full. So, if there is a way to use em bait you might try, but I think my garlic shrimp did just fine.
