    Hi darren,

    Good to hear from you. Strong north winds today with an air temp pegged at 50 degrees,going down to low 40's tonight. Water is cold for this time of year,55 degrees surface and that goes down to 15 feet and then quickly drops to 45 degrees.

    Fishing has been great. Trout are on the feed big time in 30-50' of water today right behind the lodge with the largest being 12lbs, the bait was a trolled 6 inch glide bait and an once of lead ahead of it,never tried that one before,they hammered the trout with that rig. Still a good shallow bite as well(less than 20'). Smallmouth bass fishing has been superb lately,the biggest being 5lbs. Walleye fishing has been very good. Last night 2 guests were fishing walleyes and caught fish in the 4-6lb range,these are longtime guests who said it was one of the best nights of fishing they have had here. I was pike fishing last week at wicked weed, lots of fish in the deep grass there, 15-20 feet of water.

    Iam sure you and humpfrey are looking forward to the opener on the 18th.

    See you on the dock.
