60 days until Spring.....

Less than that until we grab our waders and rods and head to the walleye and muskie grounds.   Less than that until the gills and crappies move into the pre-spawn shallows.   It won't be long now.

I’m sick 😷 of winter. Looking forward to things warming up and I can rig up one of my fly rods and toss some flies.

How did the person who made the first clock know what time it was??

These next two weeks are going to be rough. I made it a point to get some work done yesterday in my garage with the door open. Crazy that lower 40s felt so warm…. I can’t stand this cold.

I wonder how much a storage space is a month? Might be a good option.

Why storage space when you can store at Dad’s place for free!

I can't wait to get the boat out and see how much damage the mice did this winter.

Mine didn’t have any visible mouse damage when I cleared a foot of snow and 1/4” of ice off the collapsed cover two weeks ago… The joys of boat ownership!

Now I understand why he doesn't want to be bothered selling a few pieces here and there. It's just a pain in the rear to him when he could be selling a 1000 at a time. He will always be little Timmy to me tho. Good kid.

 Yeah, my one son is a Garlic freak. Last year I thought was crazy with 2 garages totally loaded at harvest. He replanted that in the fall. Nice to see how they took.
 
 Kevin, Couple years back Timmy got in with Eagle Claw and Mustad Hooks. They sold him pallets of hooks (random) Costed them more to ship them to him than he payed out. Eagle Claw finally caught on and said they had to raise shipping to break even. Guess the warehouse just writes stuff off as a lose? Taking 2 truck loads of totes loaded with tackle out of here in a couple days. I take a peak in each one and just shake my head

I hate to say this Chris but I think it's good that he's putting his time and energy into a business venture rather than something nefarious. That boy has a good head on his shoulders. Keep me in mind for ice out. I'm ready to get the toon out. Best old-timer fishing machine there is.

Small pond by my house has half of the ice gone.  I assume by mid week, it will be 100%.
 
I imagine most of the lakes in the area will be ice free in their feeder creek sections soon, if they aren't already.  Today and tomorrow are the only two days in the 30s in the long term forecast, for Pgh area at least.

There were killdeer in the driveway this morning.

The poster formally known as Duncsdad

Everything I say can be fully substantiated by my own opinion.

The creek was in my driveway this morning. Maybe the leaves in my lower yard will be gone when it recedes
