I drove by Lone this morning and it's freezing over. Never seen that before.
Everything is freezing over down here. That's why my new 4wt. is still a "virgin". bawling:
Did you use the new rod?
Only test casting it at the boat ramp. I've been to big of a wimp to even get in the water. Maybe later this week.
I am having withdrawls. LOL. I went to a lake last Saturday after calling the Postmaster who said the lake was good to go with only ice around the edge. Got up early and drove for the 1.5 hours, stopped for coffee at my favorite stand. Nicole gave me a funny smile, but I didnt care I was going fishing!! Got to the lake and saw that the whole damn lake was frozen over. All 200 acres. I was able to stand 3 feet from the edge and jump up and down. Never trust the local Postmaster for fishing info!!!
Mark, sorry your trip was a bust. At least you got a smile from someone.
I love your last sentence. My local postmaster is not to be trusted either.
Nice warming rain overnight. Maybe that will help the lake fishing.
Postmaster - no; Islander - yes!
Lone is thawed out.....trust me, I use to work for the Gov't.
Watch out for this guy....he can go postal too!!!
Hey Kokita, I think I finally hit my temperature limit yesterday in my pontoon and waders on a lake. No fair you stayed warm with your pram and Crown Royal. If I could drink anything other than coffee I would have. Next purchase is a thermos that keeps coffee HOT all day. See you this weekend on a lake.
Well it's suppose to be sunny, high of 45, with very little wind tomorrow. So I will most likely hit Lone for a while. I think I'll take the plastic boat and keep my candy-ass out of the water though. Hope to christen my new 4wt. If anyone else wants to play come on over.
I'm thinking of making a run up to Lone on Sunday. Any recent reports?
Slow and deep or fish chironomids.
I pretty much only fish Chironomids at Lone. As long as its not iced over I'll be good.
Forecast for Sunday is cloudy, high of 56, you should be fine. Layer up though. The last time I was there the water temp was in the low 40's.
