    Went to Chautauqua for the day, nothing much going on because of the cold front moving in. We started to troll and not even 5 minutes later, we boated this little guy on a 9 inch Grandma, black perch color. Got two more rips, one felt huge when I picked up the rod, but as soon as I started to reel he spit the lure. Don't ask me how a muskie spits 3 number 5 hooks, but oh well.

    Yeah it is clearing up a little bit. The north end of the lake seemed to be much worse than the south, we caught our two fish right in front of the Casino after the bridge.
