I fished with Dan today on a couple of lakes. We were fortunate today as the weather held out for a change! Air temps were in the upper 50’s and the wind was light and variable. We had very little rain fall in the form of a light drizzle as we caught bass on the first lake. The fish were very lethargic and didn’t respond well to the jerk-baits. Most of the better bass fell victim to slowly dragged jigs. About 20 fish were taken on Memphremagog before we shifted to the second lake in pursuit of bigger fish. The second lake had a water temp of 47 to 48 degrees and the fish were not very responsive there either. Within the first fifteen minutes we had a couple of bass that went 4.75 pounds and 4 pounds even. Unfortunately, they were to be all the bass we were to catch. There was however a 6.5 pound brown trout that nailed a jig while busting smelt in the shallows. Another tough day thanks to Mother Nature!
