    i saw ya running south on 71 around little before 4 pm. You couldn't have stayed out too long. I couldn't miss the fish and ski with the OGF sticker and OH Angler licence plates.

    Saw ya out there, but you left before I could swing around to say hi. Oh well, if your day was anything like mine it was cold and fishless. I didn't end up getting in the water until about 2:30. Right about the time the sun went away :eek: That guy runnin' up and down the lake had to have been freezing.

    if its anytime i want pleasure boaters on alum, its now.. all that noise should drive the fish closer towards shore.. thats my theory anyways.. :eek:

    thanks maaan..

    same here. Marked em (40 feet), but that wind made it really difficult to keep things vertical. We were only out for a few hours (buddy had to drive home to Cleveland), but it felt GOOD to put the boat on local water again :D

    Water temps were 34-36.

    Glad to see that you got out despite the cold temps . Hope ya had fun .
  11. Hey there Phil and everyone.
    Sure wish I had the guts to put in today too. All I did was housework. Man am I tired.

    Now I have to run a load to Cleveland tonight and can't go to the meeting at the wings place. WOW!!! Has it been a year already?

    See ya all soon on the water I guess.

    anyone know if alum main lake have frozen back up ?? kinda wants to fish it sometime in the near future..
  13. The main lake is open. Shove ice in the east bays. Skim ice directly in front of the spillway. New Galena ramp looks launchable. As usual, we can't have mild weather without paying a price....wind is out of the WSW at 25 gusting to 35+.

    thank you terry.. :) the wind is kickin here in downtown too..
  15. ShakeDown - Was you crappie fishing? If so did you try any fishing in the 8ft to 10ft range? The reason I ask is because the Black Crappie move into the shallower water a lot sooner than the White Crappie. I have caught some reall nice Black Crappie around this time at Alum. I was out working on my boat this past weekend and finally have it ready to head out on the water.
