Erie Ice Fest: A Pleasant Ending
We talked through a variety of options and eventually decided to visit Pleasant Lake, a small lake that tends to offer good ice when many others do not. Another good move. Plentiful aggressive trout, a fair number of perch, and a couple of bluegills helped make the lake pleasant indeed. Most trout were rainbows, but we did manage one brook trout. I caught several rainbows, so I was able to add species No. 5 to this year's list. Looking back at the past few days, best I can remember, our small group together caught eight different kinds of fish.
Tomorrow I head for the Erie airport to begin a day of travel that will end nicely at home. Erie Ice Fest has provided a wonderful start to the 2014 fishing season.
