Got out yesterday for some lake trout action.drilled a dozen holes for me and my fishing buddie at around 9:00 am.9:30 am we were frost over nighf and surface was mushy already.moved around looking for some bass action but didnt get nokn it started raining so we packed up and left.rained all afternoon.still had a good foot of ice but with more rain coming and temps in the 16-16c range we should have some open water within the next couple of weeks.walleye season closed yesterday also.they were staging in there spawning areas.looking like a good start to the opener.will be putting my ice gear away and start getting my openwater gear out.hopfully i will be trolling for lakers shortly.
