On Twitter? So are we
Alright, the question of the year is... When is it time to go fishing in the spring? In 2014 we are having a long winter here in Ohio. Now I am not complaining about the cold cause I ain't built cheap. But it seems like nothing that I am trying to do while fishing is not yielding results. People are out ice fishing. Catching fish.. why not in non frozen water? Crazy fish.
Today's post will probably not answer anything but me just venting. So let's continue
Baits, baits and more baits. I have used everything from an ill jigged crayfish to spinners to frogs and even a fly thingy with nothing. I have not broke out the live baits at all this year because frankly I just don't want to waist the money. So secondary question is.. what baits are good for cold water fishing? But let's remember that I am stream / creek fishing here. All of the ponds that we love to go to are still covered in ice.
Streams, creeks and rivers. Sadly I myself have never had any good luck fishing in any of these. It's a learning process, it's probably the reason that I stated this blog with Jeff and Cody. Good buddies going out fishing together learning what works for each of us and sharing that knowledge. So when you take your kids out it seems like you know what your doing.
Scouting out that perfect spot. New spots this year, we are heading over to licking county this year fishing at buckeye swamp, licking river, Indian mound ponds and the old raccoon creek. Raccoon creek is the watershed that I have been targeting the most while scouring the last few weekends. And I believe that I have found some perfect spots "believe" is totally the key word. So, while out scouting for new spots for some of this years adventures I am trying to just look for them fishies just swiming around. Waters clear ok mostly clear, but I ain't seeing no fishies. And that's what brings me back to that original question.
Well that brings up the question, how do you keep the kids happy while out in the woods? We have started to collected glass bottles. And have found a few awesome ones. Collect something that others found so nessicary to just toss.. clean out up and make memories.
