Man, what a beautiful morning and just no one to be seen. It had been since Thanksgiving that I had been on the Rock and wanted to see what was happening at the Knob.
Launched at 0700 to Ice Fog and 28 degree air temps.
Its been quite a while for me since seeing the SK Bridge parking lot empty but I liked it.
Sun was just coming up as I pulled under the bridge headed down stream. I fished 5 locations and caught at least one on all 5 but for the life of me I could not find any decent fish what so ever.
Most everything I caught deep was either on the Ice Jig or the C-tail on a 3/8th. head fishing up and down. Could not keep the camera lens from fogging so most pics are a blur.
Surface temps were at 49 when I started and just over 50 by 2 PM.
You can see several fish up and scattered all over the water column. I caught 2 busting shad on the surface and saw several what looked to be nice brown fish coming out of the water chasing them.
I did catch 2 on an A-rig when the wind started to blow. Had several blow up around me while fishing deep, they seemed to be scattered thru the water column from 20' to 70', and that 20 was over deep water.
Ice Minnow was by far the beat deal but for cripes sakes when fishing or messing with it be CAREFUL..... That bait not only wants to catch fish but it wants more to catch you. It is as deadly a bait at hooking the fishermen as I have ever fished and is needle sharp.
