How can I resist....this is the time of year when
things can go from BAD to FANTASTIC in just a few days! Well, staying
at LC is closer than Chicago when I teach on Thursday nights, so
my plan was to get up around 5:00 am and fish again, prior to work.
Granted, sleeping through the alarm for 2 hours doesn't really fit
into that tight schedule!
So I rambled around the Pike for all of maybe 45
minutes, just checking things out. Didn't sight squat! The important
info I can provide? 1. Upstream is mostly ice free and flowing.
2. Downstream is still totally frozen over. 3. The lake is open.
4. The water temps were consistently 32F.
NOT YET Folks! Better off spending this day IN
the office so I can maybe spend a day NOT in the office later....
