Sugar Springs 7/26/13

Sugar Springs Pan Fish 15 to 20 FOW

Sugar Springs Launch
We started the morning at the Saginaw Bay, but when we arrived in Linwood the marina reported 3 to 4 footers at the makers.  Not wanting to give up at 6am we headed North to Gladwin to fish Sugar Springs.  We started out at 8am in the main part of the lake scanning along the weeds and found lots of pan fish suspended in 15 to 20 FOW.  Most of the fish we found were just outside of the weed edges 3 to 6 feet off the bottom.  We used our structure scan and sonar to find the fish and then we would spot lock and hold on them.  The best action was on 2 inch gulp minnows fished on tiny jig heads worked very slowly in the zone.  The nice thing about using gulp is that you don't catch the small fish you normally get dropping a worm down into the school.  Overall we had a great morning and a wonderful lunch.
Good Luck...
