cold open water craps

I took a few minutes today and walked over to Silver Lake and tossed some small jigs for an hour. The wind made for some wild casting distances, but the craps proved to be unaffected by it and I managed to catch fifty or so from a couple different locations. I must have looked a tad out of place as many people looked at me walking along with pole in hand as though I was nuts. I am going to have to figure out how to put some of those battery operated Christmas lights on the rod at this time of year I guess to stay in vogue. But yes, the craps are still willing to provide some action in a few places there in addition to the occasional northern (2 today) and bass (2 today). Small twistertails on 1/32 ounce heads under a small float was the trick rig and they still literally attack the thing. It never ceases to amaze me how aggresive the fish are in that lake regardless of time of year. I have some of those bio-bait ice larva and tried them again today for a while, but the bite was definitely a twister thing. And so it seems that between skinning deer all morning and standing in hurricane force winds this afternoon I have taken on a chill and fever, so will now retreat to the couch to read a fishing article about tubes and panfish and doze until MA tells me to get up and go to bed. And so too, like the obedient cur that I am, I will mind. This , of course , will mean that I will not be at the lake tommorow, so one of you readers can take my place on the banks. To whomever....fish about four feet deep. Night All.......

The brushpile, Jim. Got most of my adoring glances walking up 14th, rod in hand. Ice blew into the spot soon after I got there, but I managed quite a few before that happened.I'll be back to check it out again.
