Does anyone else get excited for ice off? That time of year that the high country starts opening up, and the lakes start to lose their caps. The fishing season for red belly fish above 12k is short, but exciting. Ice off has become like a holiday for me, and I look forward to it every year. I love eager fish that have been under ice for 7 months. With the mild winter we had in Colorado I'm going to my luck for at an early ice off in a couple weeks.
Cheers to a good start.
