What a difference a year makes. On this date last year I couldn't even get to this location because of the deep snow, and there also had to be at least 15-20 inches of ice.
Sixty degrees today, fish hitting like it was late spring. Landed real good numbers of fish up to 10 lbs. and lost some too (see pics above of today's fish). However, it just felt great to be out and about fishing on this Feb. 29, 2016.
