Maine open water!! Long wait is over

Recommended Posts

It's been a long winter,  and the weather still stinks!! After a rough start yesturday, meaning halfway to the lake Father's Toyota died, bad alternator. We had to call my wife, she drove 30 min to us picked my father up they drove a half hour back to town bought a new battery then we limped the truck back to town to drop it off at the garage.  Remember this is our first trip great start? We almost said forget get it but I couldn't not go lol,  so my wife drove me all the way home grabbed my old reliable Chevy and went back to garage. Hooked up the boat and went fishing.  We got on the water around 1:30pm , it was 50°f out foggy, windy rain and water temp was 45.6°F. Well let's just say that on my very first cast I caught two 3 pound smallmouth at the same time on a 9ft diving crankbait!!

They day ended up being awesome! We caught 35 smallmouths and 12 largemouth, biggest smallmouth was 4 pounds even, caught a bunch of 3s and high 2s. Our best 5 went 17 pounds.

Plenty of water to go around and non-pressured bass! Most places I go if I see another boat I'm like "dang lake is getting crowded""  Its only going to get better too! Once the water hits 50°f this will be considered a slow day.

I believe you were reimbursed for your troubles on the way to the lake. 

 

Im moving from VA to RI this fall. My lakes don’t freeze, ever. I fish year round. I don’t think I’m gonna make it up north😰
