Today's Update and, ...or Fishing Report?

3/30/15  Taking the day off from my normal routine of our daily chat.  Time saved will be spent finalizing boat preparation honed to a razor's edge.  I want to go fishing ...and soon!

3/29/15  Most recent satellite view of Lk. Michigan is starting to look promising.  Ice has vacated the main body of the lake, but there's still lots of ice on the extreme northern end.
              Need to rearrange my pole barn to pull my boat out.  There's a decent window coming this week that might work to kickoff the 2015 season.  Depending on shore ice and if Manistee, MI's harbor is finally open?  Click LK. MI satellite view
             Area of concern is future freezing nighttime temperatures from my boat being no longer winterized.  Light bulb in the bilge might become a reel-necessity for my GM V8.

3/28/15  Finally finished up work on the Super Snubbers™ for this season.  Blue is the new color for 2015.  Now, there's 4 colors to chose from being black, blue, green and red.
               New for this year is 2 diver rings and 2 snubbers priced at 19.95 thru Friday of the coming week.  Then, certain colors will be going up.  There is no 20 bucks you can spend this season that will do so much ...for so little.
