It’s been a long time since I’ve been fishing. I was hoping to go ice fishing this winter, but it never worked out. There is still ice on many of the lakes nearby, but trout, smallmouth bass and chain pickerel season opens tomorrow and I’m going fishing even If I have to break the ice to do it. My friend Adrian and I visited a local lake yesterday that has open season year round for fishing, but the only open water was well out of casting distance. I’m very excited about fishing this early in the year. Growing up in Ontario, pike season opened in May, while bass and musky season doesn’t open until June.
I figure it will be another few days of warm weather before the ice melts, but there are some other lakes near my work that have only a little ice remaining. So tomorrow I’ll be fishing on my lunch break!
