Highland Lake – March 04th, 2007

March 4, 2007

Went to Highland lake in Andover with my brother and some friends. Late start, blah blah blah. Not sure why I’m even documenting this due to the lack of fish but drilled 20 or so holes through 1 foot of snow over 1 foot of slush, over 2 feet of ice.

Targeted rainbows and brook trout off of the town beach. There were some others out there already so we stayed on the outside of them and gave them plenty of room. Was a walk through all that snow and slush though.

Put out every kind of bait we had which included eggs, night crawlers, pond shiners, and smelt.  Jigged for a while at various depths and the only action we saw was through the 1st hold we drilled I saw a fish on the bottom with the flasher. My brother Jay jigged for it for a bit while I finished drilling. Nothing.

No fish stories, this was a no fish catching day. Was slow for everyone according to the Fish and Game officer that stopped to check our licenses. She claimed it was probably already fished out from the derby. It being a stock lake I’m sure it has it’s pressure and empties out quicker than bigger lakes like winni.

Another trip out though and I’m grateful that I got to go with my brother. Really like getting him out there. He needs trips like these just as bad as I do.
