Extended Spring

Up here, the weather is still saturating the area.  Seems to be never ending, but there are benefits to a longer spring... The creeks that normally do not flow more than a trickle are raging, which the truts enjoy.

We headed to a zone we have not hit up in years. The last time we were out here, we woke early in the morning, had a shot of jack or two, fished for about an hour (skunked) then passed out for about 2 hrs and headed home. This go-around, thanks to the crew prospecting for a couple weeks now, we know the freshwater sharks are in. Yesterday, after work, we had a great time in the rain-hail-snow and mist. Landed this guy, Ryan had a nice 3 jumper and we were on our way. Soon enough we will be on the main rivers, but may be a while.

As long as you still have fun being skunked isn't so bad

Nice looking fish. Looks like the only thing missing this time round was the shot of Jack:) Tight Lines

Good looking fish! I'm with Trout, I didn't hear mention of Jack being consumed this time...

I always have fun, and definately could have used Ol' Jack.
As for you old timers; I don't think anyone else has had problems following the blog. Gill, there are these buttons you click on with your mouse(not a real mouse)that say follow. Then you have to use the board in front of you that has letters and numbers on it...
ooooooohhhhhh
