Hit the water the other day with friends Kevin and Joe aboard Kevin's boat to test the waters and stretch some lines. The lake level is doing pretty good considering the lack of winter we have had. we were greater with a beautiful sunrise and flat calm conditions.
Water temps are a little ahead of normal due to the unseasonably nice weather, ranging from 40 to 42 depending on when and where we were. We covered a lot of water mainly in the east basin and found the fish on a pretty solid bite landing a mix of Browns and Bows to about 3.5 pounds fishing custom plugs. Look for the bite to only improve as we head further into the month.
BTW it just so happened I was wearing the appropriate hat from my friends at ReelWorld Gear
