Long time friend was in Lincoln for the weekend seeing family so we met up with the boat in tow and headed to Wildwood for a few hours of fishing. My friend had not frogged but wanted to try it and learn the tricks to the trade. We put 10 nice hoppers in the bucket in a short time with the light winds and the aggressive bite. The opposite was the fish bite, slow with only a few Bluegill caught, one nice Bass and Yellow Perch. We cut the trip short so Tim could get on the long road back home. Frogging good, catching fish bad!
Very nice morning and evening trips with friends! We started by anchoring up in 5’ of water and casted 1/32 oz. jigs with ½ crawlers and leeches. Both morning and evening fishing catching numerous small Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, Drum, Bluegill and Yellow Perch. We casted jigs into shallow waters<5’ depths and jigged them back to the boat. Also placed a dead rod/dead stick in a rod holder to dangle live bait just off the bottom for the followers. We caught some nice Smallmouth Bass and a nice mess of Bluegill using this technique, no keeper size Walleye but we had fun. Never got the Walleye Chop winds but a nice morning of fishing at Merritt reservoir. Evening trip had some winds but not a good Walleye Chop, picked up one keeper Walleye to stink the skillet!
