Just plowed again. It has been a very cold week. Most of the shelf ice has reformed with lots of anchor ice and slush rolling down the Pere Marquette River. Walked in for a hour or so and went 1 for 1. It was more for exercise than anything. Lots of narrow spots and no place to pull over and park a boat. It was barely fishable. I gave it a go and cracked one on a egg fly. Said that's enough after another half hour. Fished 2 spots. Herd from a friend Gleasons Landing was down to a very narrow path and pretty much froze across, you would have a hard time getting a boat out of there without some man power.
So that being said warmer weather is near. I see some 29-34 deg..Heat wave kinda stuff.. It will take a couple warm days to get things back to where they were about 7-10 days ago when launches were opening up a little and shelf ice and anchor ice was gone. I'm guessing if we get the warm up there calling for things will be ok to good by Friday or Saturday and get back to somewhat fishable here on the PM..
I'm open to guide any day next week if you want to get in a half or full day and take advantage of the warm up..It's been a long cold winter..
