Took Friday 4/4 off and headed to the Croton Bay with visions of bent rods hot coffe and raw thumbs. Someone forgot to tell the bass that they were supposed to stick around. When I say void of life I mean no bait, no stripes no nothing! Not a sniff not even a herring or shad. Empty! I have never seen it like that.. There is usually a straggler or two. Did find moving fish down river a piece but none had an appetite. The first official Skunking of the new season. Given the water temp was 38 and air temp was the same with slight slushy drizzle falling I predict the headed down to the Carolinas to keep warm for another month:hehe:

Won't be the last time this coming season that Visitors will shut out the Home team.

I hit a local spot instead running over there Sunday afternoon. Was probably the best weather of the weekend, wind never laod down, my hands still hurt from cold and never got a bump.
