Take a big sniff... can you smell it?

Recommended Posts

Bass season is just around the corner.  

The ice is on the thaw and the days are getting longer. Its time to put the shotgun on the rack and oil up the reels.

I dreamed last night that I caught a 7lb bass on a t-rigged powerbait lizzard, which is clearly prophetic.

And now that I have a job, my good old friend the baitmonkey will never go hungry, infact I'm feeding him right now.

Bucket,

I have to meet with a client that has a fantastic bass pond on his property to discuss a situation that will occur later this year so we made the appointment for the latter part of April when the weather will be warmer.

Hey, you and I are thinking ahead.

Can't wait for the appointment!  ;)

Here in Georgia the winter has been colder than any in recent memory but each day I look at my boat and start getting ansy. Since I really only got back at fishing last summer, I can't wait to go during the spawn and maybe nail a DD.  :)

another 6 inches of snow and degrees in the teens sure made it hard to sniff around here, but i still have faith that spring is coming sooner rather than later. IT BETTER!  >:(

I think the temp is supposed to be about 60 degrees tomorrow.  I live on lake Guntersville in AL where I can walk to the water.  The question: What will I do tomorrow?

Reality, I prefer boat fishing to bank (pier) fishing; so, the Yamaha/Triton will be running for most of my fishing.

Aw, come on guys. The high was 20 degress today and there is 6in of snow on the ground.

If you cant smell it in the air, go open a bag of powerbait. :)

Matt,

I appreciate your enthusiasm, but I don't know what you are smelling?? Yesterday, it was 8 degrees with snow on the ground and I only live a few miles from you. It is 10 degrees this morning and the snow is still there. Optimism is great, but I am not taking the cover off my boat just yet. LOL

Well ive been smelling it for a month.  But here in SE kansas all the lakes have been frozen over for a month and the ice is to thin and ice fishing isn't for me.  But tomarrow its going to be 70 and sunny and the old ranger and I will be on the water.

Enthusiasm?! Optimism?!

Tisk tisk.... what is wrong with the older generation?  When it was 8 degrees out, I was running around town in just my underwear (my BPS brand underwear, mind you!) leaping and shouting "SPRING IS HERE!!!! SPRING IS HERE!!!" and handing out fishing magizines  to all the little children to promote the next generation of anglers.

The funny thing is, "enthusiasm" and "optimism" are the exact words the police chief used...... :-/

The record low temp for this area was set last Tues an -29 degrees.  Record snow of over 180 inches so far this year have hit the area, but why am I smiling? :)

7 more days to the start of my fishing season.  I leave the snow and ice of Northern NY for the Kissimmee/St. Cloud area of Florida next Saturday morning.  Have one week left to get the boat and truck loaded and ready.  ;)
