    Was at Coffeen today, thinking about going back out tomorrow. Where ya headed? Didn't fish much today, mostly just run the boat, and check my maps and get an idea on where the bait is hiding, trolled a few cranks for striper, had 1 hook up, felt average, but no boating, just busted some of the winter rust and arthritis loose, :eek:oooh: :smile2:. Deciding on where to add a few rod holders, and more junk ya know....... cleaned up the camp site a little, got it pretty much ready to drag the "summer housing" over maybe Sunday. Also thinking about Carlyle maybe, but I have a feeling it is going to be awful muddy for a few more days, as the Kasky is all over the place right now.

    I'm headin' back to Baldwin. Gonna try to find some hefty Blues! Caught 10 last week but nothing over 11 1/2 lbs. Hopefully I can find some good sized shad.

    Fished Coffeen Friday night with catinaldatime and Dan the fisherman. Had a few runners but Charlie was the only one to land anything. A few decent channels but no flatties.

    Yaeh, Saturday and Sunday were both pretty cold. Friday night wasn't too bad but once the front started moving in the bite was over. I may hit Otter Lake for a few minutes tomorrow after work. I want it to warm up SO bad I think its staying crappy just so I cant fish!! lol
