I couldn't stand it anymore. The boy and I went out to the local pond this evening. 34 degrees and 25 wind chill. It didn't feel that cold when the idea struck me to wet a line in the soft water for the first time this year. I did get one nice largemouth about two pounds in the hour we fished. Caught it on an x-rap. Sorry I didn't take a camera because I really wasn't expecting to catch anything. The wind was howling and our hands were freezing, but it was worth the hour fishing with the boy. Maybe next weekend we will be fishin together on Lake Erie pulling in walleye!
