Sunny
48 degrees
Ice free for about 2 weeks
Swirling breeze



Was a great feeling to finally slide a boat into the open waters of the local ponds once again. The big boat is still hibernating so I decided to take the kayak out for its maiden voyage of the 2007 open water season. The pond that I had ventured to has been ice free for a couple of weeks but our weather here hasn’t been very warm and lack of sun as well. The water temps are still fairly cool but we went searching for fish. With the Vexilar running and slowly paddling on the pond, I was not finding any areas that had any type of fish concentrations. I was marking a few fish here and there but was unable to find any schools at all. I search shallow water, deep water, the north and west shore as well as the east and south shore. There weren’t any other people fishing so I wasn’t able to see if any fish were found. The swirling breeze was making fishing somewhat difficult in the kayak as the kayak would constantly be moving from side to side. Unfortunately no fish were caught on this outing and actually there weren’t any bites at all. If we could get some warm weather and a number of days with the sun out, this would warm the waters up and get the fish in the spawning mood and bring them towards the shallows. This week is not looking good for that as the temps are staying in the low 40’s, overcast skies and drizzly rainy weather for most of the week. This coming weekend we are going to try our backup pond that we used heavily last fall and winter and hopefully these fish will be a little more active.

That looks good, Kevin... Nice pic. Most of the ice is gone on the metro lakes around here. Won't be long and I'll get my boat out and try for some slabs.

Thanks for exchanging links, by the way. I almost did the usual templated email response to ya, then I noticed who it was smile smiley
