04-07-07 Evening Report.

4 posts in this topic

Do you ever have those days where you do real well and go back the next day and the spot just doesn't produce, but you know the fish are still there? It can be humiliating! blush.gif and frustrating. confused.gif

Tonight showed why you never tell anyone that the fish will be biting in a certain spot. With the wind from the same direction and just as strong F.M, Uffda, and myself headed out at about 4 this afternoon in hopes of catching a few 'eyes. We went to my spot from yesterday, and it was slow to say the least.

Uffda ended up with a nice eater, I lost one eater at the top of the hole(I wasn't putting my hand in the water on a cold day like today!) I also lost a nice one, probably about 18-20" at the bottom of the hole. Plus a handful of small 'eyes. Just wasn't as productive as I thought it was going to be, but I guess that is why they call it fishing.

All in all it was a great evening on the water with two friends whose company I appreciate. I for one had a great time, even though a few more fish would have been nice.

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing!!

I wish it were true to say I've only had one of those days. That just makes the good days better. You know that on Rainy those slow days are limited and most days she's going to produce and when she doesn't you still hope to learn something. Lesson last night: dress warmer even if it is April and the sun is higher. You can always shed a layer or 2.

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
