Anybody doing any open water fishing yet?

Unread postby Dewey » Sat Apr 04, 2015 1:54 pm

I just pulled my boat out of winter storage today and spent the day getting it all ready to go. My spring deer scouting is pretty much wrapped up and figured since I'm not turkey hunting I better get out and do some spring fishing.

Anybody having any luck?

The ice just cleared off the lake near my place this week. I can tell you I miss ice fishing already.

Local lake just opened up this week. Planning on pulling the boat out tomorrow and taking it for a test run tomorrow afternoon.
Didn't ice fish all year and I'm out of fillets, so it's time.

We were out on Mississippi and catching jumbo perch 10-12 inches.

Got a few walleyes mixed in but nothing of size so far.
