Got to Axehead at about 5:20AM to find Augy getting out of his car. Started off on the southwest end of the lake. Used powerbait (rainbow) and gulp salmon eggs for awhile, but nothing wanted to bite. Tried an inflated crawler and ended up with a bluegill. I quickly decided not to go that route. Saw a guy pull up two on the east end, and I think we had only one our side.

Decided to move with Augy to the north. Got a bite on the power egg shortly after my first cast, but wasn't able to connect. Oh well...

Finished just before 8AM in order to get to work.

I guess it was one of those "shoulda been here yesterday" kind of day.

It's always good to fish before work. It was nice fishing with some of the WCF folks this AM.

sean (sculpin), sorry about the false advertisement! LOL. don't feel to bad, i got skunked too.

temps were about 5 degrees colder than yesterday. may have slowed the bite.

I probably saw you guys out there today. I arrived about 5:15 and fished till 7:30 the bite came to a screaching halt at 7am. I was the guy in the green northface jacket looking like I was bundled up for a 12 week artic winter. I ended up with two and missed a few more. Same drill, powerbait. It seems like the fish are beginning to become less plentiful in a hurry. The action wasn't quite as consistent. I think it's about time for some bass fishin anyway. Although... those are some tasy trout.

Oh well,

The skunk wasn't so bad. That was the first time in a long time that I fished before work, and it was cool to meet some good guys.

Only now I'm steamed about the false advertisements of the weathermen. It was supposed to continually get warmer as the week went on, so I was looking forward to going out again, but not in the freaking blowing SNOW! Is it April or DECEMBER? Hopefully be out on Sat AM though.
