BLUEGRASS ISLAND: at the permitted level- ok to cross today.
All public areas are accessible today. Buttonwood , Bluegrass Island, Ford st, all along the Towpath and Jerome rd rapids, Davis overlook .
Button wood and Jerome rd were hitting best . Spread out , those fish are all over the place.
The warm up and sunshine sparked some action yesterday.. we saw quite a few 1’s and 2’s and I bet we see some limits today. The jacks are in for sure, good keeper size
The object of leader length is to keep the bait off the the bottom-I wouldn’t worry about the exactness of how high your jig is off the bottom, as long as your offering is above the walleye, you’ll grab their attention. However the long leader 4-5 ft seemed to be the ticket yesterday. The only issue I have with the long leaders is trying to cast and not get hung up on everything behind me bushes, other people or my ear. Other than that long leaders can allow that bait to move a bit more freely /naturally through the water.
Have fun , be safe and good luck fishing
