@Curt - RI , Jerk bait bite will kick in. When you find one, you'll find 6 or 8.

For sure! The water temps are probably plummeting right now. No gradual drop this year  :nope:

Had snow on my cover this morning and ice in the guides while fishing. Took a wave over the bow and it froze. We lasted less than 2 hours. Going to be as cold but no wind tomorrow.....hopefully better. Had an awesome day yesterday. 6 smallies over 5 between us a dozen over 4. Love the St Lawrence.

We lasted less than 2 hours.

I can see why with the conditions we had! Sometimes we just have to know when enough is enough and to go home.

Hopefully the wind lays down for you tomorrow and you can put some more beast smallies in the boat. Be sure to get pics!

@Curt - RI , went out today mid-day and put the hurt on them. Caught 22 fish on crank baits and suspending jerk baits. Just as I figured most of the fish came from two spots. All the fish were between 1 and 2 pounds.

Wind died down but trailer was frozen to boat. Took over an hour to launch. That wave I took over bow froze the TM and made a skate rink in the console area. Needed to pry lockers open. Wind was perfect. .3 mph drift. First cast 5 1/2 smallie.

Sounds like it was worth all the extra work! Got any pics of that 5 1/2??

@Mitz Agree 100%. I love hearing that people are still out there catching them! I also hope to get our a few more times before calling it quits. We'll see...

Got out to Slatersville yesterday. Water temp was 38 in most of the pond. Mid day some of the shallow bays were 40-41. Early on, ice on the guides was an issue. As it warmed up it became less of a problem. Got a few bites on a suspending jerkbait, which feels weird to throw there as most of it is shallow and if overgrown most of the year. I got a 4lb there last weekend on a weightless fluke, but the water temp was still over 50 then.
