It is hard to get interested in doing just about anything outdoors lately. The cold and the rain are not something I want to brave after coming back from the daily hot Florida weather.
I did manage to get 100 night crawlers before the weather turned nasty, but I haven’t sacrificed a one of them to the bullheads or even to the trout.
The rain was something we have really been needing and I’m actually glad it has come when it did. By that, I mean I would rather have it now than during the first week of turkey season.
I checked with my writer friend in Canton and he told me that the bullheads hadn’t come in yet on the St. Lawrence River bays and tributaries. He keeps pretty close track and his son is always prospecting for the first spot where they really begin biting.
He is going to let me know when the action gets going, but in the meantime, as soon as the weather moderates a bit, I am going to try Sandy Pond on the first calm night.
