Hey Crick,

Got your email and sent you a reply. Sounds like it is indeed your rod. I am going to be out of town this weekend. Do you want to pick it up when I get back on Sunday?

He never picked up his rod so I ended up selling it on ebay. Made a quick and easy 70 bucks!

I'm going to try and get it sometime this week. I get done with work by 3 at the latest, and I've got a broken wife at home so I've been trying to go home right after work. Sounds like you aren't going to be available until late tonight, so lets plan on some time Thursday.

Hey! Yes I am planning on going fishing after work. I think I am going to get done with work a little bit early. I was thinking Chester Woods...let me know when and where you were thinking.

Chesterwoods is perfect. I get out of here about 3pm will go home and pick up my stuff and then it takes about 15 min for me to get there. How about we do this? You still have my number? Why don't you give me a call when you get out there and I'll meet you at the ramp. Are you headed out there by yourself? Maybe we could fish together. I'm always looking for somebody to fish with.

Sounds good...I was thinking the same thing! I should be done with work around 2:30 or 3:00 also. I gotta get some stuff together. I will give you a call when I get down there. I am guessing I will be down there before 4:00.

      How thick was the ice?   ....   can an ATV go out on the lake?

      I'm gonna let you in on a secret that I discovered many years ago on a lake that had low numbers of very large Crappies. We all know that sunset is a time when Crappies become hungry and active. They seem to appear out of nowhere and after a half hour flurry of action, they disappear just as quickly. Often when fishing this lake I would get a bite or two if I was lucky. One night a friend and I were set up in my usual spot and right on time, we started catching fish. We ended up catching over a dozen 13.5"-15.75" Crappies that evening. About halfway through the action, as we realized we were doing much better than I ever had on that lake, my friend commented on the full moon. It was just peeking above the trees, and the beautiful sunset was on the opposite horizon. Not realizing what provoked that prolonged action, we both were eager to go back 4 days later. I got 1 fish, he had 1 bite, as was typical for the lake. Puzzled, we were talking about our last trip, and we came to the conclusion that the sunset and moonrise combo was the cause of the outstanding action. People talk about the full moon creating better activity "because the fish can see better". I am VERY convinced that is NOT the reason.  Musky fisherman know about the power that the moon has. With moon rise, moon set etc. being times when a big fish is more likely to strike.  Other fish like huge Crappies feel the power as well. When the moon is full, moon rise and sunset occur at about the same time. The combination of both high percentage times at once creates a MAGICAL window that occurs once per month.  Since then I have capitalized on this monthly occurrence many many times, for walleye, eelpout and musky as well as the crappies. It is way more than just a coincidence it is MAGIC!! Sometimes the days before and after the full moon are also excellent, occasionally 1 is even better than the full moon night. But any time you are planning a trip for a challenging species or difficult location try to be there at that magical period and you will improve your odds of success.  It doesn't matter if its cloudy and the moon is not visible the magic is still there. Hopefully you can unlock the potential of a lake with this little tip.    Remember that C.P.R. (Catch-Photo-Release) is key to catching bigger fish as well as the key to the future of fishing.

      Out tonight with the kids, honeycomb ice on the top 2 inches with water over the sheet of thick ice. Exposed shorelines are soft, my dog and kids broke through while walking. Even though the shores are shot for driving I’m guessing we’ll have good walkable ice (waders) for a while...

      Haha - ya I spose!  Only we weren’t shooting paper.  Painted steel hanging targets with a spotter and spotting scope. Drive to em to paint em but no retrieval.

      Got out for a couple hours yesterday. West end of Francis again, several small sunnies but no crappies this time. Access is pretty beat up, need waterproof boots but the ice is holding up so far. Couple guys had an Argo out.
