Ice fishing is great and all, but I really have been missing the long rod. I've been out river walking lately. It has felt great to cast again.
I even attempted to make a video of my month on the river. Feel free to leave your input on the video. It's a new media for me and there's a bit of a learning curve.
For those who like pictures I have plenty of those too. All fish in the Pacochupuk region were caught with marabou, while in the Montrose city limits I branched out and used a gulp a couple times.
I had a whole herd of deer cross the river right in front of me. They were very curious as to what I was doing.
Back in Montrose I found a fish with a big open sore behind its eye.
There was a fine piece of gravel in it. I removed it with a hook point. Anyone have any ideas of what happened to the poor guy?
I hope everyone is making it through the doldrums of winter alright, but keep in mind the ice is fun and the rivers still run.
Life is short, live it well
