    Tried out the Channel again near the spillway.  Only caught was two snagged suckers, which are plentiful as they were jumping out of the water continuously for the 2 hours we were there.  Nothing else caught.  One guy on the south bank caught a walleye on a spoon of some sort, but threw it back.  We moved to the dam afterwards and only caught one milky slot male.  Plenty of boat activity by the dam, but it was tough to see if anyone was catching anything.  Bite is still pretty slow.  Not sure if the spawn has happened yet.

     Went to the Channel for the first time in three years to try for some 'eyes.  Started off down by the bridge, but no luck.  A nice fisherman came back from the spillway and let us know he caught a few there on darker plastics.  So my friend and I walked up to the spillway on the north side.  Though the way down to the water is extremely dicey at best, there are a few places to fish if you can get down to the shore.  My friend caught one male within the first 15 minutes, but nothing afterwards.  I had two on, but both spit out the jig.  4 guys fishing on the southside didn't catch anything while we were there.  The bite is still pretty slow so it appears the spawn hasn't started yet.  Hopefully once the water warms up, the bite will get better.

    fished the lake today from 9am till 2pm, 2 milky males (over), still not seeing an aggressive bite, a little better but not what I would expect during the spawn,

    Fished the channel below the bridge last evening a few hours before dark to 1 hour after dark, 1 slot and a few lite bites so not much change there, also fished my hot spot on the lake, 1 slot (milky male) and many bites, they would hit once hard and then gone, I would say the bite has greatly improved on the lake, a lot of people at the drop wall/inlet don't no if it was hot or just a popular spot? No sign of pepi lapew thankfully .hopefully make it back out on Monday.
