I couldn't really see it that well but they sure yelled a lot. That is the only trout I saw netted and there were probably 10 total boats on the lake. Didn't actually talk to anyone.

    Water temps have dropped from around 55 back to 51 to 52. When I left my house yesterday there was a lot of ice on my windshield. The water is cleaner than normal for Collins.

I bring some bass rods so I switch to bass if I am getting tired of going in circles. Bass fishing is very good.
