Just an Update....Lots of Reschedules....Stupid Wind!by Capt Juls on 04/21/22
I'm still alive...I just haven't been out since the 12th, due to wind and reschedules.
The problem with April is the unstable weather, cold water temps, and groups that schedule more than one day. So, when the groups are traveling a long distance and they may only get one of their three or four days in, I tell them to stay home, and reschedule. All of them are appreciative of the info, so they are not here sitting on shore looking out at the lake, wishing they were fishing.
Sure, others go out in nasty conditions during the spring, but they are either using bigger boats, or they are cowboys in tournament style boats, going on days that are not particularly safe. I prefer to make sure my customers have a safe and fun trip.
Fishing in 3-5s is not fun, because most people can't stand in the boat when it's that rough, so if it's not fun for them, it's not fun for me, and I prefer that everyone have fun out there.
Water temperatures are rising and are in the mid to high 40's now, so we're getting there. The bite has been good when we can get out though, and the fish are hungry.
My crew for today and tomorrow has rescheduled, so I will not be out until this Saturday. It feels like it's been a month, even though it's only been 9 days.
Anyway, I just wanted to let everyone know why I haven't posted any reports lately. I'm fine....Mother Nature is just being a whacko this spring. Let's hope she takes here meds soon and straightens out!
