Aaaaaahhh! Springtime in the stripmines!!!!

Discussion in 'Southeast Ohio Fishing Reports' started by pastorchris, Dec 21, 2008.

  1. Ah! Springtime!
    Just thought I'd shoot out a quick note and get everyone's blood stirred up about fishing in AEP

    As you are all probably aware, today is the shortest day of the year. What does that mean? The days are getting longer from here on out and that means spring is on the way!!!

    I've already been "gettin the itch" to get out my tube so it will be a long 3 or four months yet (man, that sounds like a long time, doesn't it?) but soon and very soon, we'll all be camping and catching in the stripmines for another wonderful season of fishing.

    So, what do you all think?

    Hopefully we'll manage to meet face to face up there sometime and not just chat on the internet.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!

    Blessings
    Pastor Chris

    Just the peace and quiet on the water, a stream babbling down the rockwall, the birds in the newly leaved trees. It all looks and sounds sweet in this freezing weather. Merry Christmas to all.:G

    It has been a long winter already! The smell of the campfire and the smell of the spring air is just around the corner.Sgofish......... remember to be in touch come spring. We will hook up around the grill and cook up something and tell some good fish storys! Merry Christmas to all!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I've always looked at it this way. As of Jan. 1 I've got less than 90 days
    and I'll be fishing. See I don't ice fish and there are plenty of coyotes
    to hunt in the coldest months so I start counting down from 90 on Jan 1
    and before I know it, its boat in the water time. It helps keep me sane.

    Can't wait.....wont be long now!!

    You guys are killing me. Mother's Day till the next Sunday can not get here soon enough. Me thinks a March trip is in order just to take the edge off.

    With the lake effect snows rolling into Northeast Ohio, I would much rather be using my 4 WD for the white mud at AEP. Spring can't come soon enough for me. I'm sure the 'ol float tube would make a nice downhill sled, but I'd much rather be dangling my feet in the cool spring water.

    Hey, BBANKS...

    Can you hear the pop tabs cracking? Shrooms and filets sizzling in the hot oil?;)
