|Details:||temp 45 water temp 40- 42 got a late start put in @ the boat ramp just before 11:00 and stayed untill 2:45. the wind was non stop @ about 15-20 mph it was comming out of the south but still blowing over the ocean so it was a cold windy day out there. I figured i might run into some fellow maff,s. but i guess most/all you guys were a bit smarter and stayed inland or just in. smoke texted me and said he had 4 pickerel. know i,m thinking 150 miles round trip. 3 hrs in the truck and 3-1/2 on the water and not a bump, tap , nibble, just a snag and that came out pretty easy. i,m sure i hav never ben as happy to put the boat on the trailor and crank the heat. should be nice sun i,ll try again. oh ya forgot to tell ya my steering was frozen when i took the cover off. my plan was to motor stright and steer with my trolling motor. the steering defrosted. i dident.
