Well lately it's been a write off up here. We are still waiting for an ice season, yet at the same time the high winds we have been getting everyday make it freezing cold when you do get out. Not only that, but instead of the usual snow, we've been getting lots and lots of rain. Tried to fish the Grand River a few days ago and found that it was up about 6 feet higher than usual and running fast/muddy. Not a pike to be found even in the sheltered tributaries further back. Tough stuff. Temps are getting colder now and we might actually have a shot at some ice fishing if it stays like this, and the winds calm down a bit. I'm not liking this global warming thing!
