Fleas

Post by steve »

Going to try and get out onto the lake next week. I was wondering if I had to switch to thicker fishing lines or the fleas have not arrived yet….
Has anyone had fleas on their lines yet?
Thanks

Was out two days last weekend and fished from south of Basin Harbor to Essex-Charlotte Ferry crossing. No fleas then. But they are probably around the corner.

We haven't seen fleas yet, but there is "cotton" on the water that can be nearly as bead. We scraped several lines on Sunday before they bound up.
