A small, maybe 10ft iceless hole has began to form on the lake I am targeting this season. Considering the lake is almost 90 acres, it’s probably not something to get too worked up about. Unlike the past few years, I am dealing with the winter with little urgency. I’ve learned the hard way that getting all desperate to be fishing again does nothing good for me. The winter has become a nice break from the manic ordeal otherwise known as my “carp angling”.
