Got out of town early, met some snow on Berthod Pass and rode it into Granby (that's were I lost a bearing on the snowmobile trailer :mad:).  We fished over by the pump house straight south of the island to the east about 300 yards.  Found 55-70' of water and marked fish from the bottom to suspended 20' off the bottom.  Didn't catch our first fish until 9:30 then the bite was slow but steady until about 3 pm.  There was four of us and we iced 10 and missed many bites (the bites were pretty lite).  Smallest fish was 18" and the biggest w/ almost 20 and very fat.  All in all not a bad day, windy in the morning and very nice in the afternoon except for the repair of the trailer which took 4 hours and $100 (parts were easy, finding someone to come and torch the old bearing off not so easy).

Only two or thee small groups. One guy came over from in front of sunset boat ramp and said they had only caught one and the bite was real slow.

For about $15 or $20 you can get yourself a pair of bearing buddies in the automotive section at Wal-Mart that replace the dust cap on the wheel. All you have to do to install them is remove the existing dust cap, and tap them in with a hammer. That gives you a lubricating nipple for the wheel. Re-grease after every trip and you should never have a problem again! I've got a set on the boat trailer and the atv trailer.

Thanks for the update on Granby!

F-W-F, that was one of the best one-liners that I've seen on this site. Thanks for starting my day out with a laugh :D!
