Actually, I had coffee. Knowing GregO, he did too. Jared didn't... but he landed a nice rainbow off the shoal at the opening to the back cove this morning.
It was quite mild, and the water seemed warmer than the air. There were fish rising fairly regularly and the float tube would've been great.
An Osprey has taken residence on the pond, and was focused on working a clear sandy shoal cleared out by summertime swimmers on the sunny back corner. We watched it make two dives, one productive. This corner is warm, sheltered and gets the first hatches because of it. I walked over and it was obvious why it worked that spot in the morning. I'm sure he's eyeing the shoal as we speak.
Winter is coming though - we flushed a chub out of the shoreline scrub and it was so lethargic I was able to touch it with the tip of my rod before it took off.
We fished it for less than two hours, I'd say there's plenty of fishing left at White's if the weather holds up. Got to work on time too!
So Powers - how do we get this guy into Lycos?
