Braved the weather and temperature plummet on Saturday. Set out for some Whitefish in the boat. Fished all depths from 35-135fow. Marked one or two in shallow but majority of fish were hunkered down in the depths of the main basins, and their jaws were welded shut by the temp drop, or so I assume. Tried various presentation and tactics, but the day was tough and fishless.
I still enjoyed myself thoroughly, good company.

Maybe Iíll try again next weekend... without the snow. They canít always be successful trips.

I had the graph speed set at the highest it would go... so thatís a decent pile of fish down there... not hungry.

Temp probe is broke on the graph... more like 37f.

I really like the fact that you posted a tough fishless day...It puts the fishing days into the correct perspective, meaning not all outings are stellar

When the elements are against you, days like this happen. no reason not to get out there as at least you found inactive fish

I like it


next time may prove to be totally different

Fishing always beats working man, and some of those miserable days turn into great scouting trips sometimes.

That lake looks familiar. She can be frustrating on the best of days.
