Good morning, this one is going to be short and sweet. Another gloomy weekend up here as we have had a good solid rain for the last couple of days, however tonight they are calling for 1-3″ of the “S” word… I am writing this flurries are coming down……I am not getting my hopes too high, but starting Tuesday of next week it looks to get nice and stay there with temps mainly in the 60s during the day and above freezing every night! The past few weeks’ weather has not helped the lakes as most of the big deep lakes are still locked up with a good amount of ice and it seems like the only lakes open are those with river systems or very small shallow lakes. I am still hopeful all of the lakes will be open for next Saturday’s opener, but I honestly think it will be the 8th or 9th of May for some of them.

With very little fishing pressure this winter, and no fishing pressure for the last month the bite should be excellent once the lakes do open up. Fish should be jumping in the boat! Anglers should take this last week to go through their favorite gear and stock it up, go through the boats one last time and get ready for a good open water season!

I have not heard much about the turkey season, but have seen/heard birds almost everyday so they are active.

Thats all we got for this week, hopefully next week we can start talking fishing again! Either way we will keep you guys posted on the lakes opening up or not. Everyone take care and have a great weekend.
