Vacation report area 43

Had last week off and was having zero luck monday through wednesday. finally decided to switch north to Essex River. dropped boat at ramp and heard what I thought were herring splashing just under the bridge but could not confirm it. Motored down the river about a quarter mile and started seeing splashes that were definitely bait and turned out to be pogeys.started casting and had immediate line shortening experience. Blues could not tell how big but figured the usual micro blue that infest the river every year. next cast LDR minus fly. this was becoming a habit. switched to the plugging rod and had hit on brand new $7.00 plug.
released with plug due to broken swivel. back to flies and wire. good morning of fishing. this continued till saturday with the fish a pound or two larger each day.
passed one fly fisherman claiming a 15 pounder. after the morning my companion and I had it is believable. big blues in 3-5 feet of water on plugs and poppers.
Oh yes and one schoolie about 18" ho-hum. Sunday went one last time blues till seven then nothing. weekend boaters chased them off.

The Blues could open a fly shop with all the donated flies and plugs.
