Hit Montrose Saturday morning.

First cast was at 4:30am.
No need for a head light by 5am..

Second cast I hooked a perch and it was non-stop until ~6:30pm.

Caught about 25, kept 6 for the pan that were from 9-12 inches.
Lots were from 7-9 inches.

Best bite was minnows on a drop shot, second bait was shrimp.
Saw a few caught on softshells..
Without letting shorties go i could've had my limit by 6am.
But those little guys are more work and not much meat..

From 6:30-~8am it was slow, no fish after 8am.

Stopped at 63rd Street on the way home.
Few bites lots of gobies.

Chatting with some guys, the bite was like the north shore...
All perch were caught before 8am.

Get out if you can.

I might head back next weekend.
