Were you using a floating line ? Did you have on an indicator, or
just feel them hit ?

Again really nice Smallies,

Fisher of Men
We were wading in a shallow bay on Lake Huron. All fish came on a floating line in less the three feet of water. And while we did feel them hit (stripping streamers) they were more lethargic then later in the season when every strike moves your line about three feet! Yeah I don't know any wade fisheries in the Great Lakes that call for a sinking line. It's a lot like flats fishing. I will use an intermediate line (clear-camo) when fishing for Carp later in the season. I've hit my biggest fish in Traverse Bay. You have a legitimate shot at a six pounder there, same with Lake St. Clair although thats tougher wading.
