First Canoe Outing of the Year

Weather conditions for the week were looking wet and windy so a friend and I decided we would take advantage of Monday’s good weather and take a little canoe trip on a local lake.  Secretly I had hoped we woudl find the schools of crappy know to inhabit the lake.

Following a short day at work we loaded up my firends recent;ly purchased canoe and headed to a nearby small lake.  Upon arrival we were shocked to see a significant amount of ice still remaining on the lake.

Regardless of the ice, we departed the launch amidsts the honks of geese and silent flutter of a pair of golden eyes.

After prodding the ice a bit we focussed on the task at hand and tried to find a school paper mouths who were willing to cooperate with our fishing efforts.

We located a school of crappie at the end of the canoe ride however they didnt seem interested in the plethora of small jigs and rubbers we threw their way.  I attribute this mostly to the persistant cold temperatures of the lake water.

Maybe next time during warmer weather!

Cheers
