One Nation, Under God

We Really Wanted to Fish

We knew it was too soon, but we wanted to fish.

The ice had come off early and the temperatures had already reached into the 70s. Something had to be biting. Right?

Not necessarily.

We pitched crankbaits, pulled bottom bouncers, and dropped jigs all with the same result. Nothing.

Taj Mahal was apparently wrong when he sang “All fish bites if you got good bait.”

Fort Peck Lake has a reputation as one of the top walleye fisheries in the nation, but you wouldn’t know it watching us. Me, I could understand. My friend Mike, however, is the best walleye angler I know, and even he couldn’t get a bite...
