ive been finding some quality but not quantity as last year at this time... a local who lives on a cut and canal on the east leg of wixom says it hasnt happened yet. with the recent warmup the past few days things might change. yesterday i saw some splashing in the shallows so i went there instead and worked my way up and down a half mile stretch loaded with laydowns.
Thank you June I would be honored to be a friend on your friends list. Any time I can help please jump in and ask away. If I don't know the answer we'll find it out some how some where or if you just want to talk feel free I love to talk especially fishing.
I can't argue the "up" bite thing, although even fixed floats are not infallible in that regard.
I just accept that it might happen and keep going.
What I've come to dislike is a float with long arms and extensions, preferring shorter versions. This is mostly because I don't have a boat, so am usually casting from wooded shores. The short stout float is just easier to employ.
I suppose my comments seem like I condemn the fixed float. I don't.
But I do regard them as limited.
