I wanted to fish in the worst way this weekend, but I've made up my mind that I'm done on the ice for the year. That means ... hello long rods! However, it's tough fishing long rods through an 8" hole. So ... maybe next weekend!
What does a fisherman do when they can't fish? That's easy ... SHOP! Spent a an hour or so at Dick's today making good use of some discount coupons. I loaded up on cranks and floats. Flicker Shads and Clackin Minnows ... 6.2 to 8 gram Sheffield floats.
The forecast this week calls for 40 and 50 degree temps and only a little rain. The rivers should be open and fishable by Saturday ... and the marinas will not be far behind. Can't wait to tie into a few Steelies and Browns!
