I went Monday. Slow but steady 24 fish in 6 hours. One over 5lbs, two over 4lbs. 12ft deep. Surface temp was 52 degrees. 21/24 on the crank. Mid 50 degree Clair is my favorite of all fishing conditions. It has started! Hope they stay prespawn for a while.
I went Monday, near shore had 12 inches of visibility. I caught (4) in 5 hours. That is likely cleaned out by now. My buddy was in Anchor bay yesterday and he had 5 ft vis there. They caught loads of them but all around 2lbs and in weeds, not rocks.
I fished inland this weekend, but close to Clair meaning likely similar conditions and I think it literally popped off Saturday. Lake I was at had swarms of gills and bait shallow just crusing around all confused like they do their first days up. I would say Clair is just hitting prespawn stride. May 16-19th looks ideal, only issue is sustained east winds this week. A real shame too, cause this week you have super sunny days. You get a west wind a couple days to clean in out, sun and 55-60 surface temps and it will be gangbusters everywhere. BMAN if weather cooperates you are going to slaughter them. I'll PM you the bait me and my buddies have had the most success with this year, along with the usual suspects jerkbait, tube, blade.
