Last year on today:
My goal for 2018 is to catch 300 again this year. Right now I'm stuck on 181 and haven't been fishing in two in a half weeks. It looks to me like I will not even get a weeks worth of fishing in open water before Opener this year. Basically since bass opened to catch and release on Opener I have all but stopped fishing for panfish at that point except for with the nieces. It's hard to catch a bunch of crappies on my regular bassin' lures. While I haven't completely ruled out ice fishing for the season, I don't really have much motivation to go out and do it. I want to be fishing open water, not on the ice.
So will I reach my crappie goal this year? I highly doubt it.
