February Warmth...Huzzah!!
« on: February 05, 2020, 05:30:56 PM »
Amazingly warm February....eh!!
The water temp got up to 38F....just couldn't reach that magic number 40F....but I needed to fish.
Air temp around 40F...a brisk north wind that came and went...no sun (which is good)...10 feet of good looking water.

I put the Cabin Creek tube on to start and didn't take it off for the next 2 1/2 hours.

Picked up 11 smallmouth...all between 2-3 pounds. Several were aerial acrobats...didn't act like it was winter...more like summer.

Here are 3 of the biggest. Long range forecast for February looks mild. May get in a few more days this month.

...Heavy rain the next couple of days, flood warnings. ...

Looks like that rain down south is heading north this afternoon.
So I went out this AM to try to find some left-overs from yesterday afternoon.
Air 38F Water 37F A little south wind and no sun, overcast.
They wouldn't touch the tube this AM...I finally switched to the smaller Willie Wannabee and slowed everything down. It's still winter.

Picked up 5 more smallmouth after that including this beautiful lady that I caught from a hole where I am sure I missed her yesterday. Weighed in at 3 lbs. 4 oz.



Long range forecast thinks its gonna be in the low 50's early next week...Huzzah!!

One more Huzzah!!  ;D

Rained all night and during the morning. Small farm streams were running full by noon.





The Susquehanna was clouding up and coming up when I got there around noon. Air 39F Water 39F Cloudy and brisk west wind with snow showers. This little fellow liked the snow.



The bite is slowing but not before another 3 pounder made it a nice afternoon (on Willie Wannabe)



Rising water and some warm early week warmth should make for good fishing next week.
