1-28-12 – Champlain Trip Part I

We went fishing up in the islands of Lake Champlain today. The bite started slow but after switching to a different bay we were able to get on good fish. From 11am until just after 4:15pm, I caught about 50 pounds of assorted fish (perch, gills, seeds, and crappie). We punched a bunch of holes in a large area and using my Aqua Vu Micro underwater camera I was able to confirm that most holes had fish. Throughout the course of the day I was able to pinpoint a few specific “honey holes” that held better numbers of fish each time I returned. Whenever I would drop the camera down one of these holes, there would be numerous fish at all depths in the water column. Trying to fish with my flasher was difficult because the whole screen was red!

There weren’t many people out there fishing today and the weather was great. Tomorrow is calling for snow but no significant accumulations. Perfect! Stay tuned for more tomorrow night!
