Are you sure it wasn't me stealing your eels?. Just kidding it's almost time. My back yard is loaded with them. But haven't been up early enough to hear them. And too cold to listen for them at night. A few more weeks and we will be fishing.

The Crokus have begun to poke through the ground!
As soon as I see the first Wood Duck, I'm going to start looking for Schoolies.

lucky dawgs!

I look out in my maine back yard and still see nothing but snow.. although the banks are going down.

I'm just tying like a mad man until the schoolies show up. My 9wt is all lubed up, knots re-tied, line slicked.

Are they here yet?

Goin' down the river Sunday!!! First day out. My buddy caught 6 last week with one keeper, just before they closed for spawning season. He said it was delicious. But, we can still catch and release! And drink, and oh yeah did I mention FISHING?!?! I CAN'T WAIT...that's why I'm surfing the site!

i know, alergies bad this season. kickin my butt; crokus (bloomed open) is my first sign (usually) but water stayed at 45 degrees most of the last 2 weeks and now we are just getting in full swing. boy did i misjudge this spring run. who knew the water would do this. always pick a week off a little too soon. perhaps the weekend will have the moon bring a body of fish in.
