Just when we get a brief taste of spring, here we are with another week of winter weather.

Well, the days are getting longer and the sun will eventually beat this seemingly eternal winter into submission.

At least the ice is fading fast, and what little sunlight filters through the clouds will still help to warm the water and coax the fish into the shallows. Now, if we could just add a little sunshine and some warmer air . . .

Q, The open ponds are getting closer. I know of a couple west of 495 that are clear now. No fish from any of them yet.

Fred I've been down south in the summer time, and frankly I don't know which I like less your summer or our winters.

winter in the south is horrible!!!! the further south you go, the less skill drivers have dealing with snow!!! i grew up in the mountains of eastern ky where it wasn't uncommon to trick or treat with snow on the ground, but try traveling through GA in a light snow...that should be the next Survivor series.....we just don't do winter real well here!!! HA!!HA!!
