Over the years I’ve had luck with bass and crappie at Stonelick, but on this trip the weather was not cooperating. The weather conditions changed quickly, dark clouds moved in, the temperature dropped and the wind picked up. This is a reminder to always be aware of weather when heading to the water. The weather report for that day was a 20% chance of rain and slight chance of storms. I picked Stonelick to kayak that day because of its size and if the weather did change I could quickly get to the boat ramp.
At no point did I see lightning, if so, I would have left the lake immediately. This outing turned into a scouting trip looking for new fishing cover, a chance to grab some extra exercise and take a few pics.
