Gone Too Soon

The mornings are still chilly on the west side but it's finally starting to feel like spring. That means warming water and hungry fish. It also means some of the best fishing is already behind us as the forage and fish begin to spread out more and more. We've had some amazing days on the water so far and it feels great to have the BBQ sauce boat back on the water.

We've also experienced a great loss this spring. Unfortunately my brother in law Josh Green lost his battle with cancer this week. It's hard thing to think about and handle since he leaves behind a wife and 2 small children. We are a pretty close family so we've got lots of memories with Josh. Josh didn't grow up in the outdoors so it was always fun when I got the chance to do some outdoor stuff with him.

35 AND RAIN

After the Grand Traverse Bay ice fishing trip and working the Ultimate Sport show with Humminbird/Minn Kota, I was pretty much all in on open water fishing. After so much talk about big fish, perch just didn't sound that interesting anymore. Fortunately I had the duck boat sitting in the garage just ready to go. Unfortunately my first opportunity to go fish involved 35 degree weather and constant rain. I was going to make the most of it and I was pretty confident I would have the lake all to myself.

These nasty weather days can produce some phenomenal largemouth fishing in the spring so I was optimistic I was going to catch them despite not knowing the water well. Things started off relatively quickly although not with a bass.
