Finally!! Some fish
« on: April 11, 2018, 05:17:50 PM »
The last 10 days or so have been dismal. I've shot a lot of one hole groups with my new red dot scope.

Monday and today there was a glimmer of hope that things were turning around where I fish. They still have the old lockjaw but I think they're getting a little hungry. All the fish I caught this week came on the diminutive (2 1/2") Willie Wannabee and I've had to fish it slow and give them plenty of time to make up their minds.

Air temps in the afternoon are getting into the low 50's but water temps remain around 42-43F. When you get in the water it still feels cold...still feels "winterish." Started out without my hood but a brisk, cold SW wind convinced me I needed it.

Most fish were in the 2-2 1/2 pound class this week....



But this little gal went almost 3 1/2 lbs.......



Today I also happened on to a little 20 inch musky.



Looks like a little rain tomorrow and then comes the big warm up. I am ready!!  :)
