The tradition will never die.

Got there at 5:45, was third car in the parking lot. Bundled up in bright blue palm tree board shorts and a v neck tee, and sandals... Hiked over a snowbank to my spot and cast out. Caught a 18 inch laker first cast. Walked around the corner to my rock. Caught my limit quickly of eater dinkies for momma, and threw big **** at the spawn of jorgamundrs that were cruising and chasing the survivors of the long winter. Had many follows but no commitments. After 4 hours decided to get fudge and an overpriced breakfast sandwich... And drove home. Lake is 90% open, with lots of ice floes, and filling. Used tubes/dead goldfish to catch my dinkers and threw big jerkbaits for the gordos that I saw lots of. Made me feel good to see them... Because some of em were feckin' huge, kid. Perhaps someone who is at a higher level of skill will fare better.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Want pictures? Nobody wants to see eater lakers... So take my word for it. Get you some before the window closes and they stock the lake.

How was the road up to the lake?
Completely accessible. Even made fun of the ranger plowing what was left saying " y'all need to keep it plowed all winter"... He said "HA HA screw that."

Some serious drifts up there in the lot this year.

I went yesterday. Caught 7 macs all 15-18. Let em all go. Worst thing about it was I got three pieces of metal in the rocks. Not the place to bounce em off the bottom. Oh and I walked all the way to the back side and once I got there I had to ****. Cut off my undies to wipe. Toilet paper comes with me from now on. Guy walking around with no metal or Chonies. Lol

Hit it this afternoon. Place was full on lined with swinging sausages around launch area. Watched a guy get hooked by a fly fisherman. Haha. Got about 20. Biggest was 17". Typical baits. I think i hooked into a min of 1000 yards of old and BS line. Both back pockets were maxed out. Kept 4 for din.
