Wend. 4-10 went to south bay yesterday, sunny no wind with a steady barometer, temp 45. A beautiful day just to be outside, a lot of ice still on the bay but my favorite spot was open. I fished with herring, perch, and chicken liver. Around sunset i had a small run on a herring head, of course he dropped it before i could pick up my pole. Then around 9:00 pm had a small hit on the chicken liver. Im guessing the water temps are still in the low 40s. Did get to see a Bald eagle doing some fishing earlier he wasnt doing to well either, what a awesome bird!!! The geese are flying north by athe thousands, and the ducks are everywhere. All in all just nice to be out there Watching mother nature wake up and strech. Had a good fire going and plenty of hot coffee, Just wish id had someone to share it with. Woke up this morning to 3 in. of heavy wet snow---will it ever end??
