With the wind prediction being 3-6 mph EASTOFMRGO and I decided to head out to the Causeway to see what we could scrape up. We were right on schedule to launch at day break this morning until I passed up Jackson Ave and had to take Girod St where we got stuck behind a garbage truck for about 10 minutes. The bright spot of taking Girod was that there was an aerobics class at the trail head with some very talented participants. We finally launched around 7am and eased our way out to find the lake like a sheet of glass, very nice. The bite was really slow all day as we would pick 1 or 2 and then nothing for a while and never really found any pattern. We started out closer to the north shore and would move a mile or two south about every hour. We finished the day with 36 nice trout and 2 reds. We threw back 3 drum and 2 trout (1st throwbacks on the Causeway), lost another 5 trout and missed a few more. All in all great day on the water.
