First time out on the bay for the season. Started out up off of Lime Kiln at 10am. Wind was so bad that I couldn't even get my shelter set up. Jigged for an hour or so till I got sick of the wind and then packed up and left. 2 guys on the shore from out of state had caught 3 whitefish between the 2 of them all morning so I didn't feel too bad about leaving.
Headed down to Red River for the afternoon. Managed to get 6 nice whitefish on the ice and lost 3 in the hole between 1:30-4:30. Used a #2 gold ice Swedish pimple with a red swivel and red flapper on the hook. Fished over 10fow and just banged the lure on the bottom the whole time; didn't need to finesse it today.
