I’ve been wondering the same, except the opposite here. Much warmer than normal. Ice out way earlier than most years. I think that will provide for a great early crappie bite but walleye opener could be tougher? Hard to say. Can’t wait to find out.
We are at least a couple weeks ahead up here. I fish a lake that is always the first to open up. Ice out was april 22-23rd last year and it’s pretty much open now. With any luck, i’ll be out there this weekend.
I think I will get the boat wet this weekend. Run the gas through it. Make sure all the knobs turn and switches flip. Maybe toss around for some crappie if I can find some.
Good luck man, feels good to get out first time.
Beautiful fish. How was that down there? I’ve always wanted to try that out. I just end up down in South Padre fishing in the gulf there.
