'leeches' means artificial lures or real ones?

Yes @one.last.cast the smallmouth bass will move out to the main lake,once the weather warms up more in the inner bay. Right now the water temperature is around 77 degrees fahrenheit in under 7 feet of water were my wife & I were fishing yesterday. 🚀 πŸŽ£πŸŸπŸ‘πŸ˜Ž
Water at bait island was 74.7 degree yesterday. Up from sunday at 73. Mine is taken at 4 feet down. They have already started to spread out and will soon move

Yes @Extra Virgin we finally both got out bass fishing fishing finally & it was the first time this year that I had the boat out,(for numerous of reason’s),and there will be a couple of more smallmouth bass trip’s in the inner bay,before the smallmouth bass vacate the area for cooler,deeper water for their liking. 🚀 πŸŽ£πŸŸπŸ‘πŸ˜Ž

Good job there @Red Hering we boated at least 40 on Sunday at bait island. Cheers. Perch fishing this Friday then troll back to port Cheers
That’s good fishing there @poconokidII from your trip last Sunday at bait island.We figured if we would of started fishing there a lot earlier at Bait Island yesterday,instead of starting to fish at 11 a.m.,we would of likely caught a lot more bass!! But no complaints from us,for we both caught well over a dozen smallmouth bass,for the short time that we were there fishing.Good luck to you fishing this Friday for perch,etc. πŸš€πŸŽ£πŸŸπŸ‘πŸ˜Ž

One of my favourites to catch too @Red Hering. I'm passing on my annual fishing trip aboard the Green Wing, but many of the other usuals are already in the same bubble so I think they are heading out with Derek in the near future. Hopefully the smallies hang around long enough in the Inner Bay.

The area around Bait Island has been pretty hot for several years now. This year it was on fire as you declared. Hope to encounter a few more good days in 2020.
Likewise for my wife & myself as well @Duck Soup to hopefully encounter a few more good days of bass fishing like we had yesterday,in 2020.The bass fishing that we had yesterday was fantastic,and there were a lot of big bass caught by us & released,for future generations to enjoy. 🚀 πŸŽ£πŸŸπŸ‘:)

From the Maps link above @Rheal ... Whitefish Bar Island shown below is the official name for Bait Island. Like the bait sales on the island, the whitefish are long gone.
