It's either that or perhaps the fishery really is down. It has always seemed in years with timing like this that the herring and a few fish show up mid april and it was possible to pick away and get a fish or two each trip.
Once early May came around there was always a three or four day stretch with 10+ fish per day. That hasn't happened in years and i always looked to some excuse - rain messed up the water, it was too cold etc.
That hasn't happened in many years.
