Several of us met up at the Busse Lake/Salt Creek warm water discharge today for some good old fashion "middle of January open-water bass fishing".

Temps in the lower 20's, light north winds, sunny. Basically we all managed a bunch of bass. Augy and Tim caught a couple of 12"+ and I think a 16" fish on nightcrawlers. I used minnows and caught about a dozen in about 3 hours time. I fished from 11am-2pm. The others from 8am-1:30pm.

The CCFPD police came and checked fishing licenses. First time i've seen that but a great thing to see.

Here's some pics...


My first fish of '07!

hehe, it seems Augy's fish is a little bigger than Jason's, right?

I didn't get the minnow today so tomorrow I will be there after 9 o'clock waiting for Lee's opening.

It was indeed a great time. I managed a bigger bass shortly after I got there on a nightcrawler, but most of my bass came on minnows. The funny thing was that it didn't feel nearly as cold as the thermometer said it was.

Just found this on TheSmokingGun.com. It seems Augy was indeed busted for not having his fishing license.

Thanks for the report guys. It looks like you had a great time! I wish I could have been there.

I was planning on going today but have to much stuff to do before and after the game. (Go Bears)

I'll see everyone next week for the tournament!

Doc and Augy had a very good day for sure

I am glad the tourny is next weekend :)

Caught many bass but no big ones.

I had to vouch to "Then Man" that Augy did indeed have a licence only then did they remove cuffs and let him go.... :lol:

See you all next weekend..
