4 fish caught | Lunker: 5lb Largemouth Bass using a Yamamoto Senko Worm

storms before the weekend tournaments that were all over lake champlain this weekend did not stop anglers finding fish to bring into the scales - storms and windy friday turned the waters of champlain into very muddy waters in 2 thirds of the lake if not more,finding some of the cleaner water seemed to be the ticket for the bass but if you were looking for perch and crappies they were everywher hitting everything,water temps were varying from 62 to as high as 76 depending if you were north or south on the lake.bass were going for the senko's and jerk baits as were the panfish.

Lake Champlain: Plenty of ice, and plenty of perch, but youll likely have to do some sorting. 

Chazy Lake: Smelt, and if youre patient and a little lucky you might tie into a solid laker. 

Rollins Pond: Good smelt action of late. 

Tupper Lake/Simon Pond: Plenty of ice, but were not hearing a lot on the quality of the fishing. Go for pike and the occasional walleye. 

Indian Lake: Smelt action has been good. 

Schroon Lake: Laker and landlock action wasnt red hot at last check. 

Piseco Lake: Lakers always seem to be cooperating here, but its rare to catch anything above 20 inches.
