Wish my boat could hit the water soon. With  an inboard, I have to wait a while unless I want to winterize it again, which wouldn't be the first time. LOL! Winterized one boat 3 times one year.Caught fish on Erie in between so it was worth it.

I usually launch at Mazuriks, never launched at Huron. If I'm heading east I like Rocky River.

I never launched mazuriks, might give it a try soon. have used huron, lorain,beaver, shefield,avon,whisky,gordon,wildwood,geneva,conny. ect   being in akron I try to stay an hour travel to launch. but I'm wanting to fish the west side early this year.    maybe tag along with ya sometime my boat can keep up as long as there aren't 3 s and up , 90 merc on 17 ft crestliner.  hahahah  the fishing should be  the best ive seen since the 70s 80s ......cant wait

I agree with you snowcone, I can't wait either. The fishing should be phenomenal this year.

Currently without a boat. Am planning on getting a bigger one that I can use on Erie. Until then if anyone has an open seat for the jig bite let me know. I have my own jig gear.

Thanks guys!  Teeth are out and no bruising or nerve damage.  Full feeling back in my face and mouth!  But the pain is tremendous.  Canít drive for a week with the meds, but started Messing with Crappie gear when I got home as a distraction. All swelled up like a chipmunk but all in All it went great.  Helps to have a great surgeon.  Kudos to Dr Carpenter!

Glad everything turned out good for you slab. Hope the weather cooperates when you can drive again.  Doesn't sound like you will be missing anything at least by Dayton's weather, next 2 days rain then mid 40's for high the following 3 days. Doesn't matter, I will still hit Rocky Fork docks this weekend.

The big pond has been on fire the last three nights... Best part is... Still using ice rods!

Sadly with the nasty spring change in weather we get these big storms Noreasters and we are supposed to get 3-6inches of snow tonight! YUCK
