January 2009 Fishing Report
<p>Well, 2009 has quickly arrived and to be honest I am pretty excited about the New Year. On a personal note, I am hoping this is the year my wife and I finally start the family we have been trying for over the last few years. I am also hoping for another healthy year for me and all those effected with cystic fibrosis. I would also like to take the time to wish all my clients, friends, and future clients a Happy New Year.
I have been fishing everyday over the last three weeks thanks to some great unusually warm weather, preparing for trips and tournaments. Johnís Lake has been slow for me the last few weeks. The usually morning schooling fish are still productive but once they slow down I have had some difficulty locating fish. I have been waiting for some pre-spawn and spawning spots to turn on. The water temperature on Johnís Lake as of last Friday was 63 degrees, still a little too cool for bedding fish to begin.
Lake Toho on the other hand, has been on fire for me. Now, they are spraying hydrilla with helicopters which usually shuts down the bite in certain areas while the hydrilla dies off. Thankfully there areas that I have been fishing have not been sprayed. All my fish are being caught in clear water, using a dark colored worm. Havenít seen any bedding fish yet but I am seeing the males scouting the shallows.
