I fished with Bobby & Francois today on a nearby lake and thought it was going to be an unbelievable day when we hooked into a Lake Trout in the 1st 10 minutes. The rest of the day wasn’t as good! The water temps were 57 degrees and the air temps were upper 40s. These north winds and cold nights are killing me! The winds were blowing in at 10 to 20 once again, but directly from the north this time. With the heavy drizzle all day long, we got about a 10 minute break from this crap. Trolling fly rods we missed two trout or salmon. Casting with spinning tackle, we caught a few bass, but missed more than we caught. The weather has been like an elevator lately. I wish it would become stable. Tough day, thank god for the 6 pound laker. Here’s a shot from the trip Bobby had with me two weeks earlier. Too bad it couldn’t have been that great again!!
