i plan on making a day trip down to the whitewater system. should be great. no frozen guides and maybe even a little feeling in the hands when the day is over. hopefully the runoff isnt too bad.

no runoff and the weather was great minue the wind! geez! The wind seemed like it was coming from all different directions. I fished from about 10:30 till 4:30. Fished a stretch in the park and got one good size brown, maybe 16". Went to a couple other spots but the saw the path was well beaten and decided to try a stretch i had never been on. I ended the day with 17 fish in total. Loss a huge bow, not once but twice, same fish each time. Broke me off the first time and spit the hook on the second.

Size 18-20 zebra midges. even with the wind i managed to only lose two flies, one to a tree and one to the bow. Fish seem to be holding in the deep(2-4') runs in the tailout. Saw alot of fish rising to midges in the slow deep water. Midges were everywhere, crawling all over the ice and drowning in the fishes bellies.

tight loops!!

I found the midge everywhere on the Root System as well. Nailed one decent bow about 3.30 on a #20 copper miracle nymph. No wind in the valley I was fishing however I was in a tight valley. Great day to be out fishing spring creeks!

      7-10 days the lake will be ice free. Which will be almost right on average ice out (April 30). Pike bay is open up to Duffy island working up the bay. Paddled from the Pike river up the bay to the ice line tonight.

      Fake chirp as marketing gimmick.    They need something to convince folks to buy their unit and dump their unit from two years ago.    I am reserving judgement on the new higher frequency units.  "mega" and equiv.   Side scan actually seems like it could be useful.  Lots of stuff is changing these days in electronics.       I think what would be cool is an underwater drone with several transducers that communicates back to the boat wirelessly with sonar and video.....    Fresh water doesn't block radio waves too much so probably could use radio communication at least for a limited distance.       Some sort of modulated acoustic waves would work too.       Can't you just see, sitting in the boat, driving the mini-sub around looking  for fish, with sonar to help?   I bet the open water musky guys would pay big bucks for one....😂

      Heading up to the river in the morning trying to decide if I should fish up the river or out if wheelers.

      Sure wish we would get a strong enough east wind to pile the ice on shore. Lot of ice out there and it will take a long time if it has to all melt.

      Friends and family would worry about me if I was too afraid of getting a little wet to go fishing. Every time each one of us drives to the lake or on a lake, we are in danger of a teen girl or drunk killing us. Or a brake failure or shift and throttle or steering cable causing our rig to lose control. I bust through each spring coming off the ice. Which is why I know that it's not fatal. In Nov. I ask the bait shop owner if anybody has been out, if he says "No, its not safe" I smile and buy bait. I've been fishing when waves were crashing onto the ice MANY times. When the 1.25" ice cracks between my feet from a cough... I just DONT cough! If I have my choice I'm going to die while fishing!! That's why I fish more than I sleep or work in a year. You 'safe' people are going to die, maybe in a accident maybe from cancer, 'safe' doesn't matter!! This is who I am!! I spend more money and more time fishing than ANYTHING else!! Don't worry about me, folks!! I have survived tons of close calls.... The time we were on superior ice fishing 6 miles from shore... After dark and nearly got hit by the 1001' American Spirit ship comes to mind. We abandoned most of our gear to run once we realized what was happening. One last time... I WANT TO DIE FISHING!!  Hope that helps you guys understand. Good luck living forever.
