Went out of Cranberry Creek 6/17. Water clarity was good and no bugs or mayflies. Casted and pulled worm harnesses with 9.9 on spinning gear all day. Fished mainly in front of castle but went to dumping grounds as well in 25 to 40' of water. Marked tons of fish but only got 9 keepers. Fish were 18 to 22". Junk fish were a problem everywhere we went and caught 30 short fish. Tried numerous colors and it didnt seem to matter. Most of the fish we marked were suspended near 20'. Saw one net hit the water all day and talked to numerous fisherman. Most we heard anyone say they caught was 4.

Decided to go out of Mazurik on 6/18. fished NW and N of Kellys. Marked a lot of fish but not as many as Huron. Saw more nets hit the water but still not many. We casted and pulled worm harnesses with the 9.9 on spinning gear again. Water was as clear as it gets and no bugs or mayflies. Fished 25 to 40' and only caught 12 keepers. Most fish were near bottom. Caught over 50 short fish. Sheep were not a problem in the morning but caught a lot in the afternoon. Caught 3 small yellow perch on harnesses. Talked to a few fisherman who had same luck as us. One guy said he heard people say they got quick limits, but he didnt see many nets hitting the water either.

All in all a disappointing two days. Caught a lot of fish with all of the junk fish and shorts, but we have had such great luck the last 3 years on harnesses that i guess we are spoiled. The short fish were all different sizes from 6" to 14" so i guess that is a sign of the great hatches we have been having.
