First go at it 2019

Recommended Posts

Twas a nippley morning. Dad showed up at about 5:40 this morning. Grabbed some coffee and got on the road. Local water is closed due to high water although it looks as if the river has crested, and the land locked lakes I normally fish either still have ice or the launch piers haven't been put in yet. Drove south an hour and 45 minutes to a cooling lake I haven't been to since prior to purchasing the Lund, so at least 6 years. The lake used to be an incredible bass lake where 100 bass days were not uncommon. A number of years ago, the plant was shut down form maintenance during the winter and the bass couldn't survive the cold. Huge fish kill. Currently it's known for wipers and big cats. The season opened for this particular lake on the 15th. Reports showed good numbers of wipers being caught on opening weekend. Reports didn't say if it was from shore, casting, or trolling, which is the preferred method on this lake. It was slow but at least we got to wet some lines. Ended up with 3 wipers, the largest being 19", 3 cats, 2 largemouth, and a bluegill. 2 cats caught on worms, and everything else on deep diving Husky Jerks

I agree, if I saw 21* it would have been really hard to push myself out the door.

 

Sweet fish you got there @slonezp! Glad you got out with dad. My dad turned 80 last Saturday, I'm taking him out to eat this weekend.
