Looks to be fair, I have heard we can expect good numbers but smaller fish. The Diporiea population is way down, this is the food source for the alewife and sculpin populations. We have the Zebra and Quagga mussels to blame. This is the reason for poor perch populations also.
My buddy and I had our best luck last season fishing at night. It is an adjustment that can be made if you have a properly rigged boat. We fish out of North Point on a 30' Trojan. We rigged cocpit and transom lights so that we could net and land fish. Works well in my opinnion. Let's move this to the Salmon and Trout section and perhaps get more input!
