You beat me to it. Here is my report. We headed up to Dogtooth knowing the late spring should have giants still up fairly shallow and vulnerable and it didnt take long to prove that right. The first evening my friend popped a 31 1/2" eye up in about 7'. The next morning he had a 30 1/2" in about 9'. I know of 4 other 30"+ fish boated by other folks also. All 4 of them were early in the week also. We also had fish of 29 3/4", 29 1/4", 28 1/2" a 28" milking male which i couldnt believe, and 4 others between 27-28". We had about 25 others in that 24-26" range. Alot of milking males which i had never seen anywhere before. Beyond the first 2 days the best depths surprisingly for us was in that 13-15' range. The cool water also still had the lakers up shallow. My first fish was a 31" laker in about 12' of water. We hit a windblown spot in Kilverts and caught i think it was 6 lakers in a couple hours along with some nice eyes. It was a good week as usual.

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
