I've had several folks ask about how Lone is fishing so I went over this morning for a little while to see how it is. The algea is still pretty bad but the fish have become a lot more active. I got there around 9am and there were a couple of other guys on the water with three more setting up some pontoon boats. (Don't these people have jobs!!) Anyway, it was a gorgeous day with some high clouds and a very slight breeze off and on. The resident baldys were up high riding the thermals and a couple of osprey were dive bombing what appeared to be smaller fish near the surface. I couldn't tell if they were sucking bugs, taking something sub-surface, or just flopping around for the heck of it. Once and a while a small one would launch themselves completely out of the water. I hadn't brought a floating line and went with my usual sink-tip and Camo Carey set up. By the time I left at Noon I had 9 to hand, 3 LDR's and missed at least 4 or 5 takes. They were not real aggresive on the take but once hooked up fought pretty well. Fish ranged in size from 15 to 18 inches and all but one looked healthy. One that went 15 had some nasty cuts on one side, looked like it had been in the talons of a bird but got away. It's still beautiful outside, so I highly recommend you stop whatever you are doing and go out and fish!!!
