Went to Stumpy this morning for a couple of hours, we knew rain was coning, and it did... and the it started snowing too.
Sure makes me wish I brought raingear...thought about it, but like a dummy I did not.
We wern't planning on staying too long anyway... ;D
My buddy Bob, caught 2 browns and a bow, I caught 2 bows and a brown... ::) all in the 2 1/2 hours we were there. also I had 5 or 6 LDRs and several strikes, pretty decent action for a short time.
All of our action was on worm dodger combo's in the top 12-15 ft of water. The surface temp was 50-51 degrees.
We saw Lazylab and Saltydog, they were knockin the snot of them as usual... :D
There is a 5 mph speed limit out there guys... ::) * *;) **;D

Just funning ya! *;D ;D
We have been running a little slower with the dodgers.
Looks like you had the right technique today for sure.

I heard the weather man say snow down to 4500', Stumpy is 4600'
I had checked Accuweather, and did not see anything about snow...
I had best look a little harder next time, and keep the raingear in the truck... :-[
Bob didn't bring his raingear, and I did not want him to suffer alone... ;D ;D

At most I'd say that the "Stump" only got a couple of inches of snow last night, I just got dusted here, weather man says it's winding down, I bet you can get up there tomorrow ;) :D

I passed a guy this morning pulling his pontoon boat headed for Stumpy. It's the guy who always runs BIG planner boards out there, even when it crowded. >:( >:( He should have no problem today with a crowd. PHM
