Supposed to be mid to high 40’s with Friday raining in the 60’s. I’m hoping to be fishing in two weeks. Last week was I think teens and 20’s might have stalled things abit, I’m really hoping it’s soon.

Still lots of ice here in VT, warmer for the next few days should hopefully open up a few spots.

Going to be in the 60s for a couple of days this week. That should warm up the water a little for this weekend.

Same here ! Wednesday - Friday show 54-60 but then it gets back into mid thirty’s so I’m hoping maybe the little ponds around here thaw enough to fish! Come on spring

Well I drove by the pond yesterday and it had the nerve to not thaw out. The big problem is they decided to plow a 14’ high pile of snow right in my spot. How rude. That’s gonna take some time to disappear.

It's 68 here.

We'll be 68 on Thur. But then the wind will blow 40 mph, shift around and send us back in the 30's. That's March in Indiana.

60* tomorrow here in Milwaukee. We still have thick ice, but I'm hoping it breaks up soon with this weather. Can't bass fish til early May, but I'd love to get out and find some crappie.

Meanwhile, I'm stuck with temperatures between the mid 60's and high 70's :)

 

Of course, come mid June when it's 94 with 78% humidity I won't be smiling so much.

62 forecasted for tomorrow here!

 

Also a mid-day thunderstorm.

 

And then back down to the high 30s friday.

 

Still, by that point we'll have had, I think, the most consecutive days above freezing than we've hadin a couple months. Next week projected to be consistently 40s-50s and sunny -- not there yet, but things are looking up!

Before last week we had 15" of ice and I was driving my Jeep on the ice. Now it's 50*, raining, and wind blowing. I'm hoping to have the boat on the water in a few weeks myself. Sadly bass isn't open til early May, but I can still do a shakedown and fish for crappie. 

The Lake Michigan launches are breaking open quick, hopefully our small lakes are soon behind.

Yesterday gave me hope! It actually hit 62 degrees and our snowpack decreased significantly here in MA. Still have ice on the ponds, but if these temps continue over the coming week, we'll be wetting the hull before April. :)

@Crestliner2008: I’m in Pittsfield and Cheshire Lake actually had an open area. Managed to take a new rod and reel out and practice backlashes for a couple of hours.  No luck with a jig or lipless CB, but it felt s-o-o good to be fishing, even without the kayak.  And I wasn’t the only one.  Met one young fella who had saved up to get a Lew’s Crush combo and he was more excited than I.  Didn’t want to disturb him but did get a kick out of watching him cast, pick out a bird’s nest, tweak his reel, and repeat as necessary. Looked to me as though he had it figured out by the time I left.  Gonna be awhile before I do that again though.

I think one more week and my favorite little pond should open up. I checked on it yesterday a little water around the edges and ice is slushy grey color.

When the going gets tough the tough get going. It's 42 here and I'm going fishing.  "Bundle up" and get out. Actually it was 70 here a couple of days ago but those temps just show up briefly this early. The bird chatter is picking up.  Spring's coming.

You're killing me! LOL! Can't wait for open water around here. Won't be long. By next week I should be wetting a line. How is Onota doing? Can't be much open there yet? Or is there? :)

@Crestliner2008: My brother-in-law checked Onota yesterday (Sunday) to see if he could find trout around the launch area. Said it’s still solid and probably won’t be open for at least another two or three weeks.
