Default The last hurrah.

A buddy and I went up this morning to the local pond that remains iced over. It was with a touch of melancholy as there is a strong likelihood that today will be the years last hard deck trip. There was still plenty of ice, (+/- 20 inches) but some edges were getting dicey and the top layer is becoming rotten and an occasional step will go into an underlying slush layer. We were only there for a half day and action was a bit slower than it had been previously. I caught a dozen and my buddy got a few more than that. The fish were there, many marks, they just weren't biting much. In spite of that, the ole lake sent me off with a couple of nice consolation prizes in a chunky 19 inch bow in spawning colors (doh, no pics) and the slot buster below. Both were released.

Towards the end of the morning, a couple bluebirds flew out and landed on the ice near us for a minute. I think they were telling us that spring is coming and its time to put away the auger.

Glad those blue birds are starting to show themselves!

Glad you got out. Nice fish.

May your character not be a writing upon the sand, but an inscription upon the rock!
