How much Ice is remaining in your parts? Backwaters on the river are still locked up, as soon as it thaws I will be back there looking for some prespawn bass or panfish. Hopefully this rain helps..

Got the boat out of storage Friday and did a test run in on the river Saturday. Glad to report that everything checked out.

The Perch were spawning in the area I fished Friday.
This one hit a Crawtube.

A couple of the bass from Friday. No giants, just males feeding on spawning perch.

Nice fish!  ~c~ 

My boy and I got out for the first time today and we caught lots of fish. Unfortunately they were all toothy critters.    ~xyz  Was still great to finally wet a line though.

I installed the new 'ducer last night and I'm ready for the water again. The weather for Sunday looks lovely and I've got the Crappie spawn on my brain, better go pick up a new ultralight! Anybody else going to chase some fish this weekend?

Glad the install went smooth. Good luck on the water this weekend.

I'm planning a trip to a small pond with my son this weekend. We will be packing bass gear and panfish stuff in case the bass don't cooperate.   ~shade

If all goes as planned, the following weekend we will be heading out for some saltwater fishing. Being relatively inexperienced with the salty side, if enough hours go by and we don't manage a bite or two we will have the freshwater gear in the truck to try and salvage the day.  lo

Tight lines to everyone wetting a line.  ~fff ~cf

Reports I can do. Pictures have always been a bit of an issue. Just take a look through some of my old threads.  :P

My camera is old like me.  lo  It doesn't have image stabilization and I have a genetically inherited tremor that causes the majority of pictures I take to come out blurry at best. I will try and get my son to snap some. He is like most other 17 year olds, impatient if things don't come out right first time every time. He just wants to go back to fishing. But I will see what I can do. No promises on the pictures, but the reports are a go whether we catch anything or not.
