Sign of a stellar up coming season

Recommended Posts

I was making breakfast this morning and had a hankering for pan cakes.  I mixed up the batter and brought the skillet up to temperature. I ladled the first one out with great care.  I just felt something odd as it sizzled. It was almost surreal. I waited for the batter to bubble and the bubbles to pop, the sign to turn the the delicious treat over.  Syrup and real butter had been readied on the counter. Coffee was poured.  I carefully flipped it over and my eyes grew large.  There before me was a distinct image, one i'd seen before that was seared in my memory. The detail was so clear.  It was Ajay holding a brace of six pound smallies. It's a sign !! At least now I know someone will be having a fantastic up coming season although not me.  I was depressed it wasn't me.  When I get depressed I cope by eating so now Ajay and his freaking six pounders were lathered in butter and syrup and eaten in quick order. At least the coffee was good.

Wow ~  what an epiphany ! 

 

And it's interesting that I as sit here next to an early season hot- wood burning stove, it's so painful each time my gaze wonders out the window.  The pathetically frozen half white with snow, half brown with dead leaves tundra is starring back at me.  Taunting me almost if saying "Ha Ha you poor sap - you could have been fishing".   It's just so reassuring to know that someone else is thinking of me and at the same time sharing my pain. 

 

Last season Ice-out came a month late and was cut a month short -  just brutal.  Still I did what I could within the brief time but it wasn't nearly enough to make up for what eventually turned out to be an Epically Poor Pre-spawn. 

(5 & 6 lb smallies aside).

 

And now to top it all off - I now have to cope with the image of @Columbia Craw  in a deep state of depression, scarfing down his flap jacks  ~ 

 

What's up with THAT ? ! ?

So you had a fantasy that you ate AJ?

You know it's a bad winter depression when your St Clair buddy plans a trip to Virginia from Michigan the day after Christmas so he can fish the Potomac for Crappie (as long as we aren't iced up) and a Nuke plant cooling lake system for some largies.  :lol:
