Hudson Ice Breaker 3/7

Well, not quite. No sign of ice in Croton bay but quite a bit on the lakes on the drive down - not as much as this time last year. Air temp was in the high 40s and water temps a shade above 40 at Croton yesterday. Jim Wesley, Steve Liesman and I paddled up the Croton river for some exploratory paddling. I had the rod rigged but never made a cast - I was actually enjoying the scenery too much

Jim and Steve both wet their lines and also continued exploring out into Croton Bay. I'm not sure how they fared since I retired early with an over-tight dry-suit neck seal which was doing a number on my carotids after a couple of hours. I guess 24hrs stretching on the paint kettle wasn't enough!

Back at the ramp a guy in a tin boat reported a few fish just before dead low the previous day - one a respectable 33 inches. Also sporadic reports of twinks coming in from various locations.

It was nice to get out onto the water!
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you
