Finally got out fishing. Three times, in fact. It hasn't been pretty, with temperatures running about 15 degrees below normal and rain/snow happening every three days since January 1st. Considered going before work one day this week, then look and saw that the temperature at 7am would be 36 degrees. Again. It's getting ready to turn....and soon enough we'll be complaining of heat waves and lackluster fish. But a few good months of fishing are right ahead. Here it comes.
