a good day

a good day

sitting on the bank in the sun, a warm breeze at the mouth of a small "unnammed" creek that dumps into an "unnammed" river- throwing livers for cats and crawlers for whatever. caught a couple channels, one around 5-6 pounds, the other maybe half that. also one redhorse, maybe a pound.

Another fun thing- when I was there an older fellow came by, and just stopped to talk for a while- was a good storyteller too. it was quite refreshing happening across a genuinely friendly and honest stranger, in this crazy day and age - I wish this happened more often.

I had one like that myself yesterday. Sun, cool breeze and a line hitin the water. No fish but the weather, chattin with an old friend and just being outside was a life saver. I think the fishing community in general is viewed as a friendly bunch, something about it just adds up to good people. Whens the last time you heard about the crazy fisherman that went nutz and shot the clerk at the baitshop grin.gif! I am new on this site and reading the stories and comments on here for just a few days, I feal like I've known everybody for years. Cant wait for open water!!!!!!!!!!

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
