Fishing was much slower today than yesterday. The wind was blowing so frick'n hard I had to put my 18lb anchor out to hold the boat where I wanted. When the sun went in they all but quit biting so I took a nice boat ride checking out other spots. Today I caught most of my fish at the same depth as yesterday and all on minnows tight linning. Every fish I caught today was 10' to 12" in size. Not bad for a winter day at this lake. I would take 10 of those fish to any tournament weigh in and take my chances. Fat as a stuffed hog they was. Today I went to a 3/8oz weight to keep in contact with the bottom. Today I took my
Richard Williams rods and my Wally marshall rods. Most of the fish came on Richards rods. Both were rigged the same way. Water temp at the surface was around 34 according to my depth finder. Fish have good color for this time of year. Maybe I'll get lucky enought to go again this month and catch some more. Catching fish this time of year and in this part of the country has me pumped up for another great year. Hell if i can do it anyone can.

You need to fix Moose up with some of them "female" crappie this spring. Also, if you don't mind, you need too help arrange public transportation for Moose as I will get his truck this spring. haha
