Went to Balsam Lake today to try out some new spots. The lake was calm and not very busy (launched at the provincial park). There are almost no weeds up yet (they are just starting, so my friends the baitfish (perch, sunfish) wouldn't come out to play. Didn't see any of the big boys either. I did get lots of bites, but mostly mosquito. Threw everything I could (rapala, swim baits, top water, worm harnesses, mepps), but the only thing that bit in the water was a measly mussel. At least I avoided a complete skunk (boy that was close). I'll try again next weekend for the muskie opener.

I was going for pike and walleye, but all I got was mussels. I had better luck today, getting a pike and a smallie. Both went back in the drink.
