Okay, I took the day off of work today to get some homework done and do some work in the garage. Why is it that the weather turns to crap when I have a day off??? and when I fill in for someone on my regular day off, the weather is perfect? It's like during the summer and I wash my car.....it rains the next day.......I really should see if my washing style simulates an Indian Rain Dance.oooh: That being said....I'm bored.....I have spring fever and hear the river calling me. I have fished the Minnesota for some time and usually don't start my catting until Mothers Day. I've heard about early spring fishing in other states but I haven't heard much about MN. I usually fish Black Dog and get the warmer water leaving the lake for the river. I've had really good success but the access is kind of tough, the hang ups are tiresome and right now I'm not sure if a barbell could hold the line down. I'd like to try a new location and encourage anyone to enlighten me to cool water catfishing.
