Cool. Thanks. Most likely temps were still high 30s with the ice still hanging on the edges.

@Curt - RI ,We did our best today but all @ProvidenceBassHunter and we could manage were dinks and perch.

@toadhunter For the conditions we had today, it's good that you caught anything! I was figuring this afternoon might be a tad better than the morning, since the sun would have warmed the water a little by then.

Were those jerkbait fish? And did you have any electronics to check the water temp with?

What were the water temps?

@Joe P 42.5 - 44 degrees. Not as cold as I thought they'd be!

Had a feeling they would be biting yesterday ;)

I did too! And even my wife said we needed to get out there!

We both wanted to get out there earlier in the day, but we had stuff we needed to get done first. So by the time we got onto the water it was 2:30. Then I had to get baits rigged up, so we fished from 2:40 till 4 PM.

It started to rain about 3:40 and the air temp plummeted in a very short time.

We finally left because our hands were getting pretty cold and the rain wasn't letting up.

Looking back, I think if we'd gotten out there by 11 AM or so, we probably would have loaded the boat!

By the way, the air temp when we arrived was 54-55. The air temp when we left at 4 PM was 47! That's an 8 degree drop in less than an hour  :facepalm:

I fished yesterday afternoon for just over an hour before it started raining and the air temp dropped 7 degrees in about 20 minutes!

Caught two nice bass on a bladed jig! One was a little over 3 lbs. The other was just under 3 lbs.  :yes:

This was my first bass of 2018

A little less than 2 years ago, I sold all of my Curado baitcast reels and replaced them all with this reel: the Abu Garcia Pro Max 3.


So now that I've had the Pro Max 3 for awhile, I decided to write a review on them.


Was it a good reel to replace those expensive Curados with?

Fishing Tackle & Equipment Reviews / Tired of Leaky Weigh-In Bags?
« on: February 11, 2018, 08:03:12 PM »

I posted another review over at www.tackletest.com a couple days ago.


If you fish tournaments or use weigh-in bags at all, you'll want to rread this one!


I reviewed the Accu-Cull Weigh-In bag that I bought a little over a year ago. I tested it for over a year before writing the review.

Ice Conditions / Re: Ice Conditions - 2017-2018

This weekend should put a hurt on the ice across the state!


Not sure about the northern half of the state, but my guess is that we'll be seeing some open water here by next weekend.


Won't be long now, gang!

I have been looking at these for a couple of years now but never pulled the trigger!  For that price i might have to get one just to try it.

It's the same with the chinese GoPro knockoffs. They seem to be just as good for a fraction of the cost 8)

Do it, Joe. You won't regret it. Just be sure to pay attention to adjusting the brakes to max before starting to use the reel, and then back off accordingly until you get it just right.

As for the cameras, I agree. I have three of them that I use. They're more than sufficient, for 1/4 to 1/3 the price.  :nod:

In my recent dealings in this space I have seen how much of a mark up there is in this industry. Its insane and this industry is ripe for no name companies to roll in with "re-branded" products.

Exactly. You hit the mail on the head  :yes:

Finished up another tackle test last night.

This one's pretty interesting, since it reviews a little-known brand of baitcasting reels.
