Lake trout being taken in shipping channel off Stony Point Lighthouse and Galloo Island, in 90 to 150 feet of water. Use silver and green "Laser Bells" with "peanuts" and spin-glows. Chartreuse a favorite color.
"Thousands" of bass along hard bottoms in mild currents, near island shorelines. Shutter Bugs working well.
May be experiencing "best fishing in decades." Bass everywhere. By day, use Senkos; in evening, surface lures such as frogs or poppers.
