    Default On the board

    Went for my first open water trip of the season yesterday afternoon. It was a beautiful day in the 50's with mild wind. Water temp was 49 degrees. Sunday was the first day I would have had the opportunity to go since getting the boat ready but the wind had been blowing steady for a couple of days.

    Went to a pond that I ice fished a couple of times this winter and had great luck both times. I was quite optimistic.

    It seems that the water temp being just under 50 and maybe because a supermoon was in play, the fish were just not active. The one fish I caught was a nice one though. About 13 inches. Had a couple of other nibbles but that was it. I was just happy to get a fish. Last year I was skunked for at least my first 3 trips maybe more.

    I was also happy to try out my new sonar for the first time since buying it on a Black Friday deal last fall. The Lowrance Elite 9ti was really nice, except my side imaging wasn't working. When I got home I did some googling and found out it is a simple fix in my system settings and the transducer just wasn't selected. Can't wait to get out and try it again. Although we are supposed to get as much as a foot of snow tonight. Strange. Here are a couple fish pics.

    Almost forgot, Bobby Garland baby shad in Bayou Booger was hit hard by the one fish.Name:  20200408_134555.jpg

    Great to see you getting out. Wish we could get to go out also but we are "shelter-in-house" in MA. Tight lines and best of luck to you.

    That's too bad. Here we are "stay well at home". The governor has ok'd fishing and other outdoor activities as long as social distancing practices are used. She has made it free for everyone to fish the whole month of April also. No license required. People are taking advantage and getting out fishing. From what I have seen social distancing is being taken seriously too.

    We all have to have a 1st one of the season and yours really is a nice one! Hope you get out again soon and score a few more like that.
    Bluegill still fear me...but the crappie are not laughing quite as loudly as they used to.

    Ya gotta do what you have to do before you can do what you wanna do.

    Very nice job out there! Wish we could get out again, but it doesn't look likely in the near future anyway.
