2 months behind.

St Pats is my traditional date but this year has been BAD!
Significantly colder weather with very few breaks and weekends have been down right CRAPPY

Cove is usually gearing up but I an a handful is all that have been in yet this year.

Mother nature is getting even for last spring. Hope she does not continue this trend, last year's weekends overall were fantastic with very little interruption.
Only 3 weekends til Memorial and this weekend is looking poor too on top of it being Mothers Day which is usually a no lake day.

Yes, too late. I bet most of you are going to be glad when the nice weather shows up so the members up north quit complaining on the board.

I hope to haul my gear into the lake with my waders on this Friday (last year March). Our lake finally opened up yesterday so it will be chilly but I don't care. I have stared at all my gear on shore and in the garage since mid September 2012!!!!!

There is something even more frustrating than being a boater in the midwest and that is being a snowmobiler. And if you are both, like me, then the anxiety never stops. Ha ha

you'd be surprised how quickly the lakes warmed up last week, 40's last week of april and in the 60's last weekend.

We were the same this season, first week of May.

Yup; we're late too. Ice is just starting to go out now from what I hear. We're 220 mi away so have to pretty much rely on feed back. Planning to open for the season in 1 1/2 wks. All systems go then. Last year was an exception with early spring, this year we're paying for that.

We got out more in January and February than we did in April here in Charlotte. Weather has been miserable (relatively speaking--I moved here from Minnesota). This weekend looks like it may be fine. . .but I'm out of town on business.

Seattle weather is awesome right now, 80s in May.

Unfortunately, the local lake water temp is 54. Not getting in that!
