Nope. Its really strange. There were mosquitos about 3 weeks ago for a few days but no bugs since. Just gnats. Could also be that I fish in the heavy wind lol. But havenít even noticed anything around the yard except for the odd gnats (not black flies) flying around my head.

I am a bit surprised you want it warmer. What would you consider the best temp range for specks or lakers? Don't many go after 'ice-out' lakers? thx

Right after ice out isnít so good as waiting a few weeks from what Iíve seen. Iíve been trying with fairly poor results lately...and also would say we need a bit of a warm up to get the fish going. Even though ice has been gone quite a while now, we havenít had much warm weather. They need warming water for bugs and hatch activity to get the shallow feed happening.

I believe in what you say about letting the water warm up for brookies i like the surface temp above 60 degrees ,

Got bit by a few Black Flies in the Dorset area today. Forecast weather should have them out in force soon. Surface water temperature 52 degrees F.
