A lot of places opened up today. I hit a small pond by my house for about an hour. It was the least open with only about 1/3 open water. Had one fish hooked up on a small yellow soft hackle on my 3wt but it came off. Felt good. I'll be ice fishing for another couple of months but it looks like open water options are here. Might try some local ponds Saturday. Hitting the ice again Sunday.

Yea, it starts to get tough this time of year to choose between ice or open water. Early spring open water is my favorite though. I've caught multiple species and larger fish in places where I can't reproduce the same results once it heats up.

Yeah I'm at a crossroads too. I love ice, but I can't really go far so I try open water.... That and the insane amount of slush on the lakes is a real buzzkill, especially when your boots are ripped.

Next month I'm thinking of going to Jmart or Sutherland. Or maybe Swanson....
