From the article:

Quote: The author's goal for angler readers is to develop a system of positive thinking in the fishing game. He says nothing beats the feeling of leaving the dock "when your heart, head and soul are in alignment ..." and you have a "rock-solid belief that 'Yep, today we are gonna get 'em.' "

IMO: My heart and soul are already on the lake, my body and my boat are playing catch up!!!

DTRO,

Does postive thinking still apply when out catfishing with no luck and its 3:00 a.m. and a hour and half drive in front of you grin.gif.

This is when I feel most down in the dumps. But!! On Monday morning when I start to read post in catfish forum, my positive attitude comes right back into play. cool.gif

This has been my weekly cycle as of late!!!

Um. Allow me to interject that the point of fishing is to have fun. If it's not fun, then do something that doesn't involve too much heat or sandflies or whatever stimulus is bothering you.

We don't get paid to do this and it doesn't have to be a death march.

I know that most of the time I go out fishing I dont expect to catch anything unless i had caught them a day or two before. (Except for my one secret spot in MN.) If you have low expectations you cant be disappointed. But I agree fishing is can be very relaxing, and helps you forget about the daily grind of life that can get you down. It makes my weeks go by much faster knowing I will be able to get out fishing sometime during the week and the weekends.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
    • Big Red Lodge
      I have not heard of any either, but the weather is looking good.  I'm optimist for opener

      Thanks for your updates Cliff . Out of curiosity , if this date holds true of Monday April 30th for the start of this years event , would you happen to know how this date sits with past late ice out years , for instance 1996 , 2013 ?
