Not that the temperature has risen above zero and the lakes and ponds are finally thawing, I went out today for my first lure session of the year, it seemed like ages since I was last out and was soon back into the swing of things chucking out a selection of lures into the part frozen pond. After struggling for a take and thinking a blank was on the cards I hit into the first fish of the year, a very welcome lively Jack of about 4lb which was returned straight away to the icy water, no pics. I was glad to be off the mark especially as no one else on the pond had had a sniff of a fish today.
Looking forward to plenty more fishing over the next few weeks!
