I was thinking the same thing. Given the forecast, it should get locked up sooner rather than later.
Of course, it *was* nice to get out fishing last week in the boat. First time I can honestly say I've fished the lake in a boat in December. And if the quality of the fishing last week has anything to say for it, it's going to be another amazing year on the lake. There'll be plenty of fish caught, that's for sure.
