    Made it back - boat fired right up - Coralville resivoir was flooded about 15 to 20 feet higher than normal pool - 61 degrees was the warmest water I could find and the fish were in about 20 feet of water. Needless to say - fishing sucked! But a bad day on the lake is better than a good day in the office any day!

    We are in accord my friend! Glad you had fun. We spent a week at the Colorado River near where I 40 crosses the river mid April. It was beautiful...85-90* day and 60-65* at night! We caught lots of Stripers on anchovies of all things! It didn't take much "science" but it was fun. Here's a couple of pics of the river and scenery! I love boating:willynilly:

    I'll take some next time out and post some Side imaging sonar pictures too - it's a nice Lake but I'm spoiled from fishing Lake Fork TX + MN / Canadian lakes

    I got spoiled on Mille Lac last year. What a walleye factory. The wife was reeling in the 6 lb ers left and right and it's her kind of fishing too, lighted slip bobbers.
    Get a King Tuts gps map and plug in the coordinates after hitting the bar to find out where the bite is....:wink5:
    The Nothwest Angle, Lake of the Woods is cool to. A little hunk of USA up in Canada....):h Also liked Minaki, Paradise Cove..

    2-3 lbs all day long! Snagged a fat channel cat on 4lb test, took 30 mins to get it in the boat? Ugly sucker!

    Jim,I'm headed to Lake Naciemiento next week for the White Bass run and slaughter:D I would like to hit the river again before the middle of June!

    So many Lakes, So little time:willynilly:

    LOW is great - spent a few weeks up there near Kenora - sure do like chasing Northerns, Muskies and Walleye - We have a house rented on lake Leech this summer - not as good a fishing but with the kids now we have to keep them a bit more comfortable than the accomodations in Canada normally provide - Liked fishing Winnibegosh (sp?) too - Man, can't wait to get on a good lake again!
