Man, this mornings fishing was rough! I didn't have a day this miserable all winter and I don't think I was ever as cold!

We tried several spots on 3 different lakes this morning. At one of the stops, my friend had gotten 4 really nice Crappies in the 12 inch range last night and in spite of the weather, we were hoping they would be bumpin again this morning.

Well, the 3 of us threw everything we could think of at em, in a multitude of colors and even tried to temp em with crappie minnows....today was not the day...we had a few fish on, but I don't think they were crappies...little sunnies is more like it.

The only thing that was landed this morning....after a spirited battle on his behalf, a battle that had the drag screamin and the rod bent in a U shape.....(Just kidding)about a 2 inch long Crayfish that pinched a slow moving feather jig! frown.gif

Thats what we ran into also. A few of them were biting last night and then they shut off when the temp started dropping.

We were hoping that the weather wouldn't shut them down completely, but I guess it was wishfull thinking? Two days of sunshine and we'll be haulin, no doubt.

What month is it????? One thing I have been observing for the past several years is that the weather pattern seems to cycle in extremes of unusually cold to unusually warm at about a 3 to 5 week timeframe. If that holds true, opener should be mid 80's to low 90's. I just started a weather journal this year to record low-grade scientific data to bolster what have been foggy recollections so far.

I keep a journal, mostly related to fishing, but also has weather notes...

One thing you'll want to watch is the transpiration cycle...

In a backhanded way this weather might be a good thing... When the leaves bud and sprout early, the humidity goes up sooner in the year, before the high energy summer pattern of fast moving storms can come in.

What ends up happening is that all annoying 3 weeks of soaking rain in Mid to Late May.

And honestly... I'll take putting off Ice out by a week, if it means I don't have to spend the 3 prime weeks of Walleye Fishing in a soaking 48 degree drizzle.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
