cabin fever finally got the best of me and i hit skeeter this morning for about 3 hours. i was in search of pike, didnt see or catch a thing. it was good to get out and cast a little. rainy, windy and cold. typical hand numbing day.lol. wanted to try the spillway first but it was blown out, so i hit the dam side for about half hour, not much open water there. went to walnut run and had to fish the bay because the oil is still floating in the lake. more open water there. then it was off to the causeway...LOTS of open water there, casted for a few hours and headed home. i wouldn't be suprised if the ramps on the southeast side of the causeway are open by the weekend. cementary had alot of open water about 200 yards out for as far north as i could see, the lake is really starting to open up. wont be long now . ramps at the state park are still locked in and i punched a few holes thru but the ice is still a few inches thick there. it was good to get out and shake off the rust. too bad no pike. heres a few photos of the south side of the causeway, walnut run and the spillway.
