got the boat out for the first time this year. little cool out, high 40's to low 50's. water was just under 40. this is the earliest we've gotten out in the boat. didn't do to bad, caught the most pike in one day we've ever caught. got 5. biggest was 30 ins. 7 lbs. Not a monster, but good action and a good start to the year. will only get better as the water warms up here in NJ.
