My wife and I fished the lake from 7:30 A.M. to 3:30 P.M. The temp was a cool 17 degrees at the lake, and 5 degrees by the river. Fishing started off slow. No fish were jumping and no fish cruising the shore line. We didn't catch our first fish until 9. In all we landed 4 big cuts all in the 21"-22" range, and lost 4 others. The fish seemed to like minnows best. Like a dummy I only bought a dozen at the one stop. The wind kicked up around 3 and it got cold. It was me that complained not my wife. I had a great day fishing with my wife. She was such a trooper to get up at 5:30, and bare the freezing cold, to catch a few fish. Hope the next trip fishing is on the ice.
