Fished the opener until about noon.  Very impressed with how clear the water was.  The bass were starting to move shallow, but were very skittish with moving baits. Ended up getting just one bass on a ned rig with a little skirt and tail on the plastic.  Water started in the upper 40's and was about 53 by noon.  Maybe the afternoon would have been better, but I had stuff to do.

Here's the episode from the day.  Hope you enjoy it!

LOL My wife doesn't get any say when it comes to open water fishing!

Thanks for the advice.  I'll have to get there early, I guess!

262- there is a place where you can park a truck and tailor, but not much room. If there are 2 or 3 trucks already there you might have a problem. I toss my kayak in the bed of my truck and have only have a problem one time parking in the past 3 years. Most of the time in the summer there is plenty of room. Just make sure that you are in between the signs on the correct side of the the easement for the landing.

Alright guys I'm back and thinking of fishing here for the opener this weekend. Is there anywhere I can park a truck with a trailer? Or would I be better off with a carry-in?

Does indeed sound like a winner

Haha trust me guys, I get it.  And usually encourages me to go, too.  But she threw the kayak in as part of the deal, so in my book, I'm winning!

262. Dude. Ice on Pretty is 18 inches right now. Tell her you, me, and 20 of our closest friends could jump up and down all on one spot and nobody falls thru

Thanks for the tip.  I'm sure I'll find something cool to film. If not, that's ok, too.


Update:  Wife had nightmares of me falling through the ice, probably after reading an article that a fire department said that no ice is safe.  We all know this, and we all know the safety precautions we take, but it looks like I'll be waiting for open water to try it out here.

I'm usually very difficult to talk out of fishing, but she promised I could get a kayak this year as a compromise for me not hitting the ice today.  In the long run, I'd call that a win!
