Let me see, I sat for 3 hours in 29 deg. and 30 mph winds waiting for a catfish that never came, yep I got it bad. I can't stand to set in my house all day long on the weekends and not try something. Usually in the winter I just set and do nothing. Not this year, I got a date with a saugeye this year, hopefully more than one. If I had more time sun. I would of came to your neck of the lake and looked for open water.
I gotta have some ice soon. so I have a real enjoyable reason for gettin' outta the house .. at least this warm spell has happened over the hoilidays when there is alot of family things to do ... but It's gonna get real bore-in' come the 1st of the year if-in' I can't make my afternoon ice rounds for sure!!!
S-eyes are a lil' hard to come by in the winter months as they are scattered & I can't troll for them .. It might be a good idea to bring along some minnies & tipups for day-time fishin' & a pair of sm jiggin' poles for gills n crappie action ~ can do both on NF when the flow slows & the ice forms again.
I'm kinda thinkin' about gettin' my waders down & headin' for the Mad & messin' with the Brownies one of these days .. the water stays at around 48 degrees up here in the headwaters above West Liberty ~ kinda neat puttin' the rod in the water to thaw out the guides , plus if I'm in the hole in front of Mad River Mountain I can watch them ski while I'm tryin' to get mr brown outta the log jam hole
I don't have it yet but I will. I just had back surgery this morn. on a herniated disc and I'm gonna be laid up awhile but i am thinkin about fishin. This coming saturday we will be fryin up abunch of bluegill(my favorite) . Any way I am pain free now and I hope to make up for my ruined bow season next year. MERRY CHRISTMAS to all.
what a day that was my first face to face meeting with the "carp proffessor" and the great "ray bob the wise guy" i still chuckle at the look on bob's face when i woke him from his bankside nap and your first "adventure" with the MISFIT ,i don't think that motor ever ran again
