I ventured north on a day that I knew the weather was going to be questionable. Temps would rise only to 35F and the snow fell at varying clips throughout the day. I went into the day with an open mind knowing that the chips were stacked against me but hoped that I might connect with an early season Rainbow staging for the spawn. My expectations were exceeded. The action woefully began with 6 nice Pickerel and slowly morphed into a Rainbow festivus.
