Tres waters

Myself, matt and dakota started off at the lake. that lasted about 3 hours then after not seeing any fish,except a bunch of dead ones due to winter kill, we drove to a short piece of water, me and matt each caught a cuttie. we then drove to a third piece of water and got into a few fish including matt landing a 23" brown

Friday off

Winter came back for the day and snowed pretty good, the temps were also pretty chilled but definately tolerable. i saw a decent amount of fish with a couple of them being note worthy. only managed to land 3 with 1 of them being 20" so i am happy with that.

A little early this year

With all the extra snow weve had this year the timing is definitely different then last year. this time last year there was only a little bit of snow and a lot more open water. me and matt headed over there and the dirt road was still closed due to all the snow and there was very little open water. also there was plenty of post holing for us. we fished as much open water as we could find and then chose to move on to some moving water. we drove to some moving water but only lasted there about 1/2 hour due to the high flows which made the fishing really tough and crossing damn near impossible. we got back in the jeep and drove to another river. the flows were fine and although we moved a few fish, it sucked. a lot of driving for minimal fishing

Not yet...

....for the wipers for me. the water is still low and clarity is pretty good. there was a little chop on the water but not much. threw several different color clousers on and with a pink/white clouser landed a largemouth and that was it

Family morning

Well at least my wife and one kid. i told my daughter, weather depending that i would take her fishing this weekend. well my wife surprised by wanting to go as well. she hasnt come out with me for over a year. the rain stayed away and the weather held up nicely. the fishing was slow but i got into a few and my daughter had the opportunity to play a couple and land them so it was all good.

First sign of ice off

Myself, matt and chris took a 4 hour jaunt with news of the ice being mostly off. when we arrived in the morning we were still pretty limited on open water but as the day progressed most all of the ice, except in the middle of the res, had melted off. the weather was absolutely perfect but of course the water was still very cold. although the fishing was pretty dam good, we didnt encounter any of the bigger fish (mid 20's) and a lot of our fish were missing fins. fucking hatchery fish. a bonus to the day was that matt's daughter packed us some lunch. it was still a fantastic day.
