    Water Clarity: Clear (4+ foot visibility)

    Report: Fished Lake Washington on Monday to do some field testing of my line of hand pours(West Coast Custom Tackle). Started out split shotting a reaper off of the south end of Mercer Island. Caught 1 about a pound, missed a couple(not sure if they were bass or perch). Decided to drop shot up the east channel and started hitting fish left and right. Most came on a drop shot worm and reaper and a couple came on a sculpin. Had a pretty good day with a few very nice smallies. Best five probably went 17 pounds or so. Can't wait to get out and hit it again. Tight Lines.

    Report: The water is GIN CLEAR right now on L. Washington! I was seeing things 20 eet deep.Hit the lake at 6:30 this morning and inished up at 10:30. Only managed to catch one good smallie in a marina on Mercer Island. The ish was around 15 eet deep. I had to stay close to the I-90 boat launch, so I didn't really work the lake like I should have. No topwater action early on, which surprised me... has anyone else out there had any good topwater going?

    Report: Actually this report is or Lake Sawyer, but no listing so I'll try this.Hit the water at 6:15 with Cultiva topwater walking bait. 2nd cast yielded a 3.5 lb LM just about 75' south o the launch. Caught another 1 lbr about 100" urther and then the topwater bite died. Fished docks on the east side o the lake with Senkos (Olive Blk Flake) & (Blue Pearl) caught two more around 2.5 lbs and lost one who wrapped me around a piling. Saw a large 6 plus under a dock and tried hal the tacklebox or about 40 minutes She got interested in a pumpkinseed rench ry but that was it. Fishing turned o at 11 when the ski-boats and jet-skiis started running. Not a bad morning at all or the 1st time this year on this lake.
