Enough Already! Come On Spring...

Recommended Posts

This winter has me thinking about moving to a warmer climate. It is snowing like mad (again), the wind is howling (again), and the temperature is going to be around zero for the next couple of days (again). Add propane prices pushing $5.00 a gallon and I am not a happy camper. This may be the norm for some of you guys, but it has been a long time since we've had sustained weather like this. OK, I'm done.

Our average snowfall is routinely rather substantial but that doesn't mean I have to like it.

 

Part of what has made this particular winter especially brutal has indeed been the extended periods of just completely frigid temperatures. 

 

So I'm with you - let's speed this season along . . . . .I've had my fill.

A-Jay I would eat the groundhog and the wolf if I thought it would help.

Yesterday, Lake Wales, Florida briefly hit 80 deg F.

Although our springs are very pleasant, I'm in no particular rush.

Yeah I know, with friends like me, who needs enemies    :grin:

Roger I am happy for you my friend. Your post causes me to wonder why I am here and not there? Grandkids are the only reasonable answer. To move there I would have to go alone, and the thought of finding a new wife at this point does not appeal to me. :wink2:

Kirby, you've gone to a place that's goes far deeper than angling.

I wasn't aware that you're dealing with that painful situation.

You know my email address my friend, I'm always open to extracirrcular discussion.

 

If you ever see your way clear to Florida, you'll find that it's not the inferno that many mistakenly believe  :smiley:

The Superbowl is over.  The Daytona 500 is less than three weeks away.  My refurbished spinning reels are in transit from Delaware Valley Tackle.  I'll get them mounted and refilled with new line before we head to Daytona Beach.

 

I'll get out a few times in March and April to make sure all systems are go.

 

Then, on April 19th I'm outta here for two weeks of fishing at Pickwick and Wilson.  It's a tough life.

Tom, when I lived in New Jersey, I knew several lobsterman from Shupps Landing in Atlantic Highlands.

I've never met a lobsterman I didn't admire & respect, but you may be the first one!    :grin:   (just kidd'n of course)

Roger I'm good. All I'm saying is that given a choice between staying with the grandkids or moving to Florida Ann is probably staying here; or she would make the move so unpleasant I would have to concede defeat. A man has got to know his limitations! She is a good wife and fine fishing partner. I'm lucky to have her. She would not be easily replaced. I married well above my station with her. It is not likely I would get so lucky a second time. I will send you a PM. There are many world problems that need to be solved. :grin:

 

Rhino one of these days I hope to make one of the BR Road Trips. I would love to hang out with all y'all.

Ah, now that sounds a whole lot better :thumbsup_blue:

As for solving all the world's problems, that can't be done overnight,

but could run into a couple of days  :Idontknow:

That's okay.   The birds that migrated in the fall liked me.

If it's not a domestic finch, I'm going to guess Myrtle Warbler.

We always have the," he ain't very accurate."

Of these 117 predictions on record so far, Punxsutawney Phil has predicted an "early spring" 16 times (13.7%). As to his accuracy, according to the StormFax Weather Almanac and records kept since 1887, Phil's predictions have been correct 39% of the time.[4]

Maybe the top of my head looked like a nest.  The poor thing had to be desperate for rest.  I'd guess their next chance for rest would have been Montauk Point on Long Island, or possibly Block Island.

Tom, one day off Sandy Hook, New Jersey I was heading home from about an hour & half offshore.

About an hour from port (barely in sight of land) a myrtle warbler landed on my anchor rode, which was coiled in the bow pulpit.

I read once that myrtle warblers frequently meander offshore during migration and sometimes die of exhaustion.

The little fellow sat within a few feet of my wife and I, all the way back to port.

When I finally docked in Atlantic Highlands, he just flitted south along the coast without ever thanking me for saving his life  ;-)

(he didn't know it, but that little guy made our day)

Don't forget, Lake Wales is north of Frostproof, about an hour by horse & buggy.

Oddly enough, we were fishing in Frostproof this Sunday (Reedy Lake).

Seen the biggest alligator of my life off the Frostproof Firehouse.

(also seen a doozy of an accident on U.S. 27 near the former site of Harley Davidson)

If it wasn't for Gr children I may not be in Florida.  I used to love it down here, been coming since the 60's and became a snowbird in 1982, full time resident last 10 years.  In my area the population has exploded, especially in the winter and building is going crazy now, so it's worse.  Day by day there seems to be less available places to fish both fresh and salt.  Inshore fishing in this area is not very good until about April and I've been doing a lot of bass fishing since November.  Every year about this time I limit my bass fishing, I force myself to go, the stimulation is over until next November, then I get excited again.  I'm not crazy for the weather here in winter, sure it beats snow and cold, but I like it hot.  Next year my wife and I are considering renting our home out for the winter and heading south for 3 months, her idea too.

No time better than the Road Trip, which is only 12 weeks away.  It's only a five or six hour drive from southern KY.  I've got a 21 hour drive, with a boat in tow.  As has been stated in previous Road Trip announcements, "No excuses."  At 72, time is getting short for me.
