I found some open water today.

    I grabbed a jigging rod out of the garage today and headed out to some open water I seen earlier in the week. I didn’t have a lot of time but have been dying to fish some open water. I sure was glad I went. I took along a handful of 1/16 oz. jigs and some small twister tails. The fish that were gathered in this small pool were very hungry. I had a good strike on my first cast but the fish only had the plastic in his mouth. It only took a couple more casts to connect with my first walleye for the year. It was a scrappy little guy that maybe went 14 to 15 inches. My wife snapped a quick pic with my cell phone and this little guy was released. I had several more short strikes and did manage to land one more small eye. I spent about 30 minutes out there today and I’m looking forward to hitting a few similar spots around the Lincoln area over the next couple of weeks. I’m guessing that we’ll be launching boats around Lincoln by March 8th.
