I'm not sure of the pH reading of the water I fish here in Louisiana; it could be alkaline or acidic; "soft" or "hard".
I had my first experience a few weeks ago of trying my hand at real "hard" water fishing on the Bay of Green Bay in Door County Wisconsin. I went ice fishing.
My trip to the tundra was arranged by Geiger and Associates public relations firm to visit and sample all that Door County had to offer. Among the morsels dangled was the chance to try ice fishing and I was like the proverbial horse whinnying after the carrot. Ice fishing has been on my bucket list for awhile and when the offer came, I jumped at it.
