I actually fished twice today. Once from 4-6PM and then from 7:45 to 9:20PM. On the 4-6PM trip I bought minnows and got a jumpin bullhead right away. A kid showed up and I went to the truck to get out the hoe I brought to clear away the weeds that were up against shore. The weeds were a hazard to get a fish through on 4lb test. I got a couple more jumpers, including one that actually tail walked a little bit. Here is my biggest one of the day.
|I'd say 17+"|
After dinner I came down with dad. I got a jumper right away. I ended up getting 4 jumpers and the 1 silver all on T.H.E. Jig and a minnow. Dad had a couple of bites but didn't hook anything on a pink Cubby and minnow. The kid showed up. I don't think he caught anything. I stayed until it got pretty dark, but the SB's were either not hitting or not quite in yet.
Ice Out Report: I think I'm gonna call Ice Out for 2013 on Platte Lake tomorrow. It was open beyond the public access. Some guy even had his boat out. I'll check the area lakes tomorrow.
