Last Winter Outing
March 31, 2015
With the ice season officially drawing to an end, today would be the last day for walleye around Montreal. A slightly later than expected start saw me out just before 2:00, with plenty of time to capture some quality eyes. Christiane would be joining me after work and just in time for the best bite. In fact when she arrived it was like they had been waiting for her! She wasn’t even able to get completely dressed before she had landed a handful of decent sized fish. Although the air temps weren’t too cold, the winds made it feel more like minus 10. This has been the windiest winter I can remember but not surprising after the windiest summer we had before. We managed to land several more before darkness arrived and pulled the plug on yet another season of hard water fishing. There were many great fish released this season and some really tasty tailgate BBQ’s. Soon it will be time to release the boat from hibernation and get into some serious open water fishing. Bring on the warm weather!!
