Well I got out for a few hours after getting my son to the doctor . Too bad he was too sick to tag along .

I didn't have time to look at the gauges and forgot my thermometer on the shelf in the garage . The river is flooding due to ice and snow melt and has many ice floes hither and yon . It was overcast , no wind to speak of , I was comfortable w/o gloves or knit hat .

Lot's of waterfowl around and squirrels getting a bit frisky .

I stayed on shore as it's definitely unsafe to wade under the present conditions .

I fished a series of shoreline related slackwater areas and a couple of creekmouths . I stuck with one lure a Walleye Assassain on a weigthed keeper hook . The retrieve was simply swimming it as close to the bottom as possible with some twitching of the rod .

I ended up with 12 pickups and missed 5 of them . I got 5 walleyes from 14 -18 inches and 2 smallies 16 inch and 18 inch . All the fish came from the slackwater pockets , never got a bite at the creekmouths .

very messy on shore , I was inching along in some places . If there were ice packs you could expect them to crumble underneath you .

I stayed clear of muddy sloping banks .
