Ice off

Myself and matt met up with dbone and nate for some ice off stillwater play time. it was a productive day  if you are into 13 inch planter rainbows but if you are into bigger fish it was pretty slow, except for for matt. he landed a few really nice fish. myself, i rigged one rod with a mouse and the other with a leech tandem. leeches pulled small rainbows but i did get into a few fish on the mouse. the only one that i hooked up with wouldve been without a doubt the largest trout i wouldve ever caught. had him hooked but after he gave a few body splashes on top that mouse came flying right back at me. me and matt both agreed it was a 30 inch fish and matt said it was the largest he'd ever seen on that water. it will haunt me for a long time. matt on the other hand, while tossing some small leeches took a few fish that were sizeable including one that was 26 cutt. nate and dbone landed some smaller fish

2 1sts

I went out to hopefully pick up a wiper or 2 in this very early stage of the wiper season. the weather wasnt to bad but no wipers yet. i did however, on my 2nd cast, land a walleye and later a crappie. both were firsts on a fly rod for me. i was stoked after the walleye but really stoked after the crappie as well

Was only supposed to be evening showers

As unluck would have it the moisture started almost immediately for me and chris. it started off as a sprinkle at first but then slowly picked up and became a pretty solid rain for the rest of the day. the wknd before i did pretty well with streamers and there were no fish rising. on this day there were a lot of fish rising and our streamers weren't getting much attention. chris also had a rod rigged with chironomids  and mustered a few bows on those. i did get 3 on a streamer but no big fish this time. chris landed the biggest fish of the day, a 19 inch bow. we did see quite a few critters on the way there and back

As usual the bigger fish that i moved did not come to hand but a couple of small(er) fish did. i ended up with this 17 inch brown and about a 10 inch cutt. saw a couple that pushed 20 but i never got a meet and greet with them

Good times

I had a bail so took the drive solo anyway. i wasnt expecting anyone there but thought if there was it would be maybe one car, there was 3 but i still didnt see anyone on the water i was fishing. other then the nasty wind all day, the fishing wasnt bad and there was some good fish landed.

A decent day

I picked up jerry at the usual spot. i was hoping to find some open water on strawberry res. but no such luck. we drove over to some moving water, it fished decent but we couldnt land any of the bigger fish. then since we were in the remote vicinity i told jerry i wanted to look at some other stillwater that ive been waiting to ice off. we drove over and as luck would have it, it was all iced off. we fished it for only a couple of hours as it was late. caught a few fish there.
