HM,

Yeah, they warm quickly. This year's staying generally cool though -like a wet rag over everything.

Nice.

I was out yesterday and caught one on a pegged tube...smallish, around 13" but healthy. I lost another on the tube and lost a monster on the x-rap because I was too cold and impatient.

Anyway...good job. March through June is probably my favorite time of year for fishing....I don't know why. Keep it up.

Yeah, I know the summer fizzle thing. I used to chuckle at myself that during the winter I couldn't wait to bass fish. Then come summer I couldn't wait to steelhead fish.

The last few years I've decided to stick it through with bass and have found if I adjust some to the changing activity of the bass, (my expectations and attitude as much as technique) I can stay on them pretty well.

This year I've decided NOT TO HUNT ELK  :o !!!! and since we don't have steelhead here (HogMaster, I don't want to hear a word about the Taylor, etc...LOL..I want to keep my wife, son and sanity)... So, I'm planning to put my time into following the bass out of summer and into fall. I have some ideas on what to expect and I'm really curious -saw some cool things last September. I guess the only thing that'll slow me down this year will be the ice.

A good skunking is 10 times harder in the cold! Come to think of it, my second to last trip was probably up there too, even though I didn't get skunked. I left the house without thermals on! Man, I was dyin' out there. When that sleet hit I'd just lipped two back to back, but skidaddled anyway.

I'm not getting in my tube until the water's a bit warmer. Or, unless I strike out three times on the shoreline. So far my bits are safe.

Hey, profundo; Welcome!

I used to do a lot of windsurfing and when the water was cold I would follow what they called the "100 degree rule"....which states if the combined air and water temps equal 100 degrees then you probably won't freeze. This was a bigger deal with windsurfing since you're actually in the water (in a wet or drysuit) more of the time.

I was out yesterday in my tube with a 50 degree water temp and 60 degree air temp and I was fine.

Last weekend...45 degree water temp + 45 degree air temp = freezing!!!

it makes a big difference, having the sun out also helps.
