Default Monroe Lake, IN, 16 March 2007

It was less a fishing trip than a check-out-the-boat-before-you-drag-it-all-the-way-to-Tennessee trip. Great news! It still floats. Put on the water at about 2:00 p.m. First trip of the season. I remembered to put the plug in and take the straps off, but I forgot the casting chairs and discovered once I got across the lake that I had pretty much drained the gas tank at the end of last season. Won't make that mistake again. Now I am ready for the Tennessee trip.

Monroe was very cold. The lake was whitecapped and the air temp was in the upper forties. Winds were very strong and out of the north. No ice on the lake. Water temps ranged from 41 to 43 degrees. Saw the DNR guys out tracking. Saw several other desperate boats out as well. Lots of ducks and a few ausprey about. Lots of turkey and deer on the shoreline. Nothing green in sight. The lake water was clear and deep green near the dam. Not sure about the upper reaches of the lake, since I did not have any gas to go up and check it out, and really it was too cold for the trip, anyway.

Won't be long!
