a friend and I went to lake michigan on friday to check and see if anything is biting yet.. we got there and the wind was blowing strong and cold. we walked out on a pier and I baited up and threw it in. the wind was bringing in some good waves that were crashing onto the pier and getting us a bit damp. that combined with the cold wind coming off the lake didn't let us stay out very long. we got back to the car and had to thaw out our fingers before we left... unfortunately it looks like it is still a little too cold for any good fishing there. no one else had any luck while we were there either even though they were better dressed for the coldness. but man am I getting excited for fishing again!!!
