Nathan Peplinski reports from South Lake Leelanau Just a “few” inches in the middle of the south end about a mile south of Fountain point.
Caught One cisco on a hand line. Not a lot of flags going up today…Cisco was on a wax worm, but we had perch rigs with small minnows and tip ups with larger ones, and no real hits other than the one for today.

I will second the "not consistent out there". I tried to get out on the South west side side of the lake Saturday morning. Went out about 50 yards. Every spot went through with two hits of the spud.

Not consistent out there, spud your way!

Yeah I was only on maybe 3” last night up there. Be careful people!
