Details:Got to spend 4 days last week fishing out of North Hero Island. Weather didn't cooperate with high winds and thunderstorms but we got a couple good days in. The water is down approx 5-6' which is in contrasts to last years floods. With the low water many of the ramps can't be used.

Also alot of the bays like Squire, Mallet, Pelots, the Gut are really shallow averaging 2 - 5'. With the shallow depths and heavy weeds the wind protected bays were only ok to fish in. We caught some nice LMB's in them but with all the weeds it was a pain after a while.

We did have some great small mouth fishing around the south east point of Knight Island and the North East point off of Butler Island. In both cases the points were fairly deep (8') not far off shore given the low levels and then dropped really quick to 50"+.

Both area produced plenty of nice sally's all between 2 - 4lbs. Holiday Point also gave up a few nice one's. Caught a 5lber lmb in Hibbard Bay on the North side of the Gut and a few smaller ones along the North shoreline of the Gut as well as slightly North East of the west entry into the Gut. Caught fish on Fat Alberts, Gitzits, jig/craw but 4'' wacky rigged Senko's worked best with Craw/Orange with gold flake really producing.

Had to be careful with the low water levels.....many very shallow 2' or less areas pretty far off shore. The North Point of North Hero island is very shallow for a long distance off shore. Overall we had a great trip but with low water, high winds, and 1 day of unpredictable thunderstorms made it a bit of a challenge.
