Thread: Jan 1-5 LKA tough week

    Default Jan 1-5 LKA tough week

    Just bad juju this week. All throwbacks and no keepers so far. Took Ellen out with me today to change things up. Still no keepers. Ellen caught a few jumbo perch that we kept for fish tacos. Pic below is not a jumbo...........

    Best I could manage was a jumbo perch and this 19" throwback hybrid.

    Maybe tomorrow will be better?
    I do know that some other folks have had better luck this week............

    From everybody I talked to who regularly are out there after have been struggling as well. This winter is nothing like last winter, I may have to go back to hunting next year.

    Sorry to hear about the leg Mark. Wind, rain, or sub-freezing temps have kept me off the water since the first week of Jan.........and probably will keep me off for a while if the 10-day forecast is correct.

    Breaking a femur is no joke, hopefully you can get back up soon

    Thanks; yeah its definitely the worst injury ive iver had. Im stuck inside for now, and probably will be for a few more weeks. Im hoping to fish the lake vicariasly through this forum until i can get back out myself if yall dont mind lol. Heres a before and the after surgery pics of my leg, it had a smaller more difficult to see crack in the femoral head is the reason for the second nail going toward the hip i think. Doc said ill go back to 100% though!!!Name:  9882DB54-525F-4CB9-9CCD-D7804E8522B4.jpeg
