The Turn Around Day
May 14, 2007
Darrin & Joe had to leave early today so we decided to fish Memphremagog for the 5 hours or so. The weather was really strange on the lake with winds changing direction 3 times during the time we fished and really screwed up the fishing. Water temps were 52 degrees at best and some areas were barely 51 degrees. Air temps were 56 degrees at the end of the day too! Some of the areas that we fished just a couple of days earlier that had produced the 100 fish day seemed like there wasn’t a fish around. Clouds and some sunshine helped for a while but the N/NW winds of 10 to 20 knots definitely didn’t. We got into bass but had to resort to 3 inch grubs in some areas. There were a few caught on jerk-baits and jigs but overall, we had a tough day. With cold temperatures and rain in the forecast for the next few days, there really doesn’t seem to be a break in store for me. I can’t wait for the weather to change!
