Slow & Steady
August 7, 2004
I fished on Lake St-Francis with my wife, Christiane today for a few hours. The water temps had dropped since last week, with 69.5 degrees being about the warmest we could find. The shallower water had cooled off quite a bit since last week, so we opted for some offshore locations hoping to get a bit warmer water. It was a cloudy morning with a North wind of about 10 knots. The air temp was in the low 60s. We caught under 10 fish in the few short hours we fished, but they were quality ones with a couple of them going over four pounds. Once again, Mother Nature sent us off the water, early afternoon when thunder storms approached. I hope the weather changes real soon!
