Mr mom and now with new job I havnt done anything for my mental health. I was going to say next Sunday but Easter. Maybe we can plan a week from Sunday and I'll make it good and clear to the family I'm out.

Congrats on the new job.  If this doesn't work we can go after the smallies during the spawn.

Its going to be bumpy out there both days.  I can't wait.

Gusts to 50 mph out my way headed your way.  Lots of rain preceding it. Hopefully won't be so bad.

I hope you guys do well and have fun.

Friday Night; Increasing clouds, with a low around 47. Southwest wind around 11 mph, with gusts as high as 23 mph.
Saturday; A chance of rain, mainly after 1pm. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 63. Southwest wind 6 to 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 50%.

I am sure it will be brisk!

Saturday sounds mint.  Wish I could fish it, but I'll be out on Sunday morning instead.

Well, it felt GREAT to get back on the Q, jigging up lakers, watching the Eagles, and listening to the loons! Will and I got over a dozen Lakers between us and would have got more but it took some time to pattern them and by the time we did the wind was howling... No rats or monsters, but all were nice, healthy fish. The high light for me was on the way back into the ramp we took a few casts with ultra-light rods for stockies and I hooked and landed a 19-20" laker that gave a great fight on a Roostertail! Here is a pic of the smallest fish of the day;

Was a solid opener.  Caught some on riggers and caught a bunch jigging.  Showed up at 7 and was on the water at 730.  No salmon.

Will and I made it out again today and Will landed 2 lakers and I missed the few hits that I had, I switch over to rainbows and got 3, to save from a skunk. MUCH slower than we expected today, and one of the slowest days Will and I have had in a LONG time. But the weather was much nicer than Saturday. We did not even mark as many fish as we did on Saturday. I am sure the fishing will pick up with warming water.
