I hope everyone who fished in the BPCA derby had a good time, the fish board was impressive.  I looked back through the results they had posted on their website and this year was the biggest group of northern that I could find.  On that note the northern bite is continuing, go over by the lights and you will tie into some nice fish.  The crappie bite remains fair, with the biggest challenge being finding out their active times.  Early and late are always a good bet, but lately there has been an early afternoon bite as well.  Bluegills remain most active in the shallows, but you are able to pick a few up in the dredge lines.  Perch continue to move, and if you get in front of them they are a ton of fun to catch.  The key is being willing to pack up and move multiple times in a day.  Ralph came home with 18 nice perch last night, and here are two 13′ monsters that made it into his bucket!
