We brought up our custom ice rods instead of using spin rods. They are a little smaller, and worked good out of the drift boat. We were fishing anywhere between 30 and 100 feet of water today. I had a nice fish on at about 80 feet, but was horsing it too much and lost it about 40 feet up.
The lake was glass when we got on and Jackson Lake is such a beautiful lake. We even go the pleasure of listening to the elk bugling all morning.
Around noon the wind decided to start blowing us around, and it was a bit of a challenge to get the boat setup, so we headed to another part of the lake that was more protected from the wind. That lasted for another hour or so, and we decided it was time to get off the lake before the water got too bad for the drift boat. Any time you can get up on Jackson Lake is a great day!
