19 degrees when I woke up! Not wanting to endanger myself by launching the boat, I decided to fish from shore. Wearing 3 layers and drinking hot liquids I located a spot that would have sun by 9am. I used a 9' rod and 3oz of lead to reach out to deeper water. Jackpot! I landed 3 fish in the 18"+ range and broke off several more. I kept 3 and released 2 more that were in the same catagory.
Being curious as to what my largest male was eating, I examined the stomach contents. I found several crayfish, a sand crab?, a dragonfly nymph, and 2 small burbot. Interesting no?
