Ok I was a moron...I went fishing today...I need serious help...at least I overslept...got to Harriman at 9:15...threw big bucktails and plugs...floated a minnow under a bobber at the same time...it was way cold and wet...kept telling myself it was basic training for November at Spinney...I did not see a fish...not even a bluegill in the rocks...I did manage to walk most of the dam without breaking my neck...fished it until about 11am...decided I hadnt hadnt been stuuuuuuupid enough and headed for  Evergreen Lake...the storm had to trigger the tigers right?...well I parked at the new Lakehouse on the far end...fished the backside of the lake to the dam with a big Rainbow Vibrax Spinner...not one hit...not one follow...was wearing Polarized glasses...the snow was side ways at times...took a second rod with a bobber...errrrr strike indicator and a nymph and dead drifted it for trout...spent 3 hours casting to the dam and back...not one fish...did not see one fish...they had about 4 to 6 inches of snow slop!...man I was like a popsicle by the time I was done...mid calf down was soaked...boots and socks soaked...and no fish...oh well...here are some scenery type pictures...it beat being at work...I think... ???



and another one...



and last not least a warm one from the Arizona desert...come back summer!!!

If you went out today at all, that puts you one up on me. Now I suppose I'll have to go out in the middle of a blizzard or something, just to catch up and restore my fisherman's self esteem.

At least I can claim to be smarter than Z. I was going to meet him at Harriman today, in fact I went by the lake but did not see his truck. So I went home. I was not about to get out and freeze my butt off by myself!

Sorry you did not catch anything Z, but just think how peaceful it was....

Zman,

Wow, dedicated!!!

The skunk smells really bad in cold wet weather. It kinda comes back to life if you know what I mean. (if you owned a dog that got sprayed, you will know).

Wow, strong!!!
