Alright this is getting ridiculous, it's mid April and I'm sitting home during an ice storm instead of fishing. The conditions actually aren't that bad for fishing, but the roads are an absolute mess, so here I sit. I did however get lots of important fishing related things done this weekend so it wasn't a total loss. Amanda and I also made some ribs with one of the Reel n Smoke grilling kits. So simple and so amazing, it was a good project for a lazy weekend. I've still got quite a bit of stuff to accomplish today, it won't be snow blowing like the rest of the neighborhood is doing right now though ( I refuse to do snow removal in April).
I did manage to make it out for a few hours last week though. I went to a new body of water and was for sure surprised at where most of the fish were positioned. They were much shallower than I would have thought and biting reaction baits pretty well. The water temp didn't really indicate that they were going to be shallow, I did have the wind in my favor though. It definitely seemed like they were getting antsy to move on up and start cruising the shallows.
