Default Big Saw apologizes re: water temps

Hey when I'm wrong I'm wrong. I had a rather lengthy discussion regarding water temps. A few on the site told me that the lake front water temps were much lower than I said. They were right ! I and the national weather service, Lake Michigan NOAA, and thousands of other people who fish the lake regularly were wrong. The wind from the East and North East which for thousands of years, since the last ice age that created the great lakes, has blown in warmer water now blows in colder water. West winds, contrary to popular belief , actually warm the shoreline This I know to be true because we went to montrose this morning. A typical June 16th day and boy was that water cold! The winds were out of the East. Brrrrr. We finally got the shanty set up and I popped a half dozen holes. Two for inside the shanty and four for our tip-ups. A couple really loud pressure cracks got us a little on edge but all was fine. The first fish came on a swedish pimple tipped with a shad rap we (NEVER) use live bait. The next two fish came on the tip-ups. They had shad raps on them, sitting motionless, we NEVER use live bait. The last perch, a nice winter jumbo of almost 9 inches, came on a rat finke tipped with a shad rap tipped with paddle bugs on the shad rap hooks. Did I mention we NEVER use live bait. All in all it was a fair day. Nice to get out. Hope the ice lasts till the season closes in July.

Whatever. You obviously are not a source for credible info.

One of the blind leading the blind. the water this morn was around 60.

Deal with it.

You are as gracious in defeat as you are at flinging softshells around the lakefront.

$12.00 a dozen...There is a better way.

I am the light.

Come to the Church of Courtney.

Even the heathens are welcome. Sit in my pew.


OXOXOXOX,

Courtney
