We drifted the west side of the lake with whole fresh herring today. The wind was weak, so the drifts were slow. In 2-1/2 hours or so of fishing, we ended up with 8 blues from 3 - 23#'s, and missed a number of fish, a few of them were gars, though. The biggest fish was caught on nightcrawlers, and not herring. :lol: If the wind had been just a little stronger, I really think we would have caught more. I marked quite a few on the depth finder as we drifted.
