A weekend of contrasts

I spent this past weekend in Londonderry, NH for my sister-in-law's graduation. I got up early on Saturday to trek over to one of my favorite bass and pickeral ponds. I was greeted by a very heavy and wet snow. YIKES!!! :eyecrazy: Aren't we only 2 weeks from June? Needless to say, I went back to bed.

Last night, upon our return home to central CT, I went to a local pond for an hour to try again. No snow, and plenty of fiesty bluegills and small largemouths. I also saw some very large bass cruising the edges of the riprap as the sun fell. I'd conservatively estimate a few of them at 6 or 7 pounds.

The old addage about New England weather still holds true. If I see snow again this year, I think I'll cry.
