Default 2014 Big D reports

Happy New Years to everyone here on 24/7. Hope this year brings a great bite for us all.
First report: today the river is covered in a sheet of ice. Hope the fingerlings of the last spawning season make it through the cold. Again the river is cover in ice stay home or hit the beaches of SNJ like I will be doing on Thursday.

Got spring fever over here. Ran down to Dicks Sportng Goods last night for my DE boat license, grabbed some string for my leaders, and grabbed some lures. Came home and cleaned out the old tackle box. Tonight, I'll start tying up about 80 hooks to pass the time. I keep saying "soon" but I'm starting to have my doubts

I had a whopping 45 minutes of "me" time to kill before work today. I stopped on the 420 overpass just before 95 and sunk a hook. Incoming tide was moving and the debris in the water was crazy. Not sure if I got actual nibbles or it was trash under the water but it was nice feeling the rod move. Not a fish was landed but I went into work feeling really good.

Soon my friends.

Soon.

Can't wait that long. Going in the morning to look for some cats or carp. Supposed to have a partner in crime but may be going solo.

Any body else going nuts or is it just me? Debating on heading out tomorrow. I heard the river has thawed but I'm skeptical that anything would bite since the water is so darn cold.

Really I should just stay home and tie up some hooks, but.......

Gone be a late run this year then its gone to be quick fast and furious. That's my bet. The winter melt will keep Big D temps low well into April without question. Me? I'll still be out tere scouting come march on my days off. Then I'll be opening WildWoods first ever beach bar restaurant so my time will become very limited this spring season. So I'll get it where I can when I can but ill be watching. Catch'em up.

Had to try out my new rod/reel and the weather was decent yesterday. Fish a few hrs and nodda. Tried shrimp, corn, and carp bait. Not a nibble. Got cold and windy on the water by noon. Was home around one with a deep chill in the bones.

So much for going out opening day tomorrow. Shoot first year in awhile I won't be scouting the first week.

Water temps 34f in Philadelphia and more snow sun-Monday and still ice as snow that hasn't melted plus extremely cold temps next week. We might as well push opening day ahead to April and expect spawners to show up as early as may. Smh I might not see a bass from the river with everything I got going on come may. Who am I kindling I will make time somehow some way! But this is just awful.
