Couldn't take it anymore so a quick trip to Clear was in order as I knew it was 100? ice free. Water temp was 37 - 38* and I stayed away from the south shore as I believe people were goose hunting over in those fields cause the gun fire from that area was impressive.
My goal was to get all 12 of my new reels dialed in and run my motor a bit, mission accomplished. I did fish but didn't find a bite. Spent a good hour zig zagging from about ten feet to 35 feet and didn't see anything exciting on the Lowrance.
Still a good day. Really got the juices flowing!
