Old Man Winter might just be giving us is last one-two punch of the year! The snow and ice from last week’s winter storm is giving way to a somewhat warmer and rainy weekend.
Does he have any remaining tricks up his sleeve?
For me, it is time to start thinking about getting outside and catching some fish!
I don’t know about you, but every time the weather warms a bit I get the “itch” to get outside for some of that quality rod and reel time.
Catching More Fish!
First, I need to go and sort through the gear and get myself ready. I did a few camping trips this winter, so those rods and reels needs a bit of cleaning up, new line, and the lures need to be sorted and restocked.
I will be doing a series of posts on how I am getting ready and will make this year my best “get outside and do more fishing year yet!”
I will follow up on my trips and talking about the local weekend fishing outings in my Tarpon 140 fishing kayak or my Wenonah Kingfisher canoe, along with pounding the banks of the local retention ponds that dot my residential area. My buddies and I also do a good number of extended weekend fishing and camping trips, so I will also include those.
I don’t want to forget what I call my “day-to-day” fishing that I can sometimes manage to wedge in after those daily workday and commute events.
