Fishing Opener

The fishing opener was a cold one.  Temperatures have gone to 28F overnight.  The load on the lake was tiny.  It might just be too cold or too early.  I was out for an hour and had no nibbles.  A fellow trolling the lake seemed to just be trolling.  The two loons in-between us seemed to be finding plenty.  They were diving away.  With three layers on, it was ok, at best.  The sun was bright and did warm my jeans so I could warm my hands.  The black handle on the fishing rod also seemed to warm nicely.

Weed growth seems early and very spotty.  The usual weeds fish can go in on Mud are just not growing yet.  And the water is just a bit high, but only a few inches.
