Lake Burton 2017 – 58 Caught

It was a breezy day on Burton today with a crisp 9 mph wind out of the NW. We all had dreams of catching Lake Trout today but ended up with a myriad of species. 58 fish were caught by 14 anglers in 4 boats using techniques from planer boards to downlining in the mouths of creeks to the dam. Some caught more than others but the group as a whole enjoyed catching Spotted Bass, Largemouth Bass, Chain Pickerel and Yellow Perch.IMG_20170401_074402959_HDRVIDEO0055_0000025046IMG_0468Download$IMAG06211IMG_20170401_115427642Download$IMAG0608_11IMG_20170401_094512133IMG_0461IMAG0618IMG_20170401_114634727
Baits used today were blueback herring, medium shiners, night crawlers, red wigglers, power bait, 5 oz redi rigs with bluebacks and crank baits, spinner baits and various top water baits to catch 52 Spotted Bass, 2 Largemouth Bass, 2 Chain Pickerel and 2 Yellow Perch. The 14 anglers were Mark, Elaine and George Sun and friend; Dale Burrell, Bob Fields and Dave Saporski; Alex Vasquez, wife and 2 children; and Steve Scott, Mary Madden and Chris Hight.

Most of us ended the day at 2pm and decided to head back home stopping along the way to have some lunch at the Blue Creek BBQ restaurant.
