The temperature today got up to almost 60 and I should have gone fishing but I did the sensible thing and stocked up on some more fire wood. The weather for the next few days is forecast for much of the same and the river is in great shape. It’s hard to believe that a week ago it was -5 and the river was starting to freeze up.
That little project I took on with running some heavy equipment on that reclamation site has been a bit over whelming. They must have found out that I am heading to Andros Island soon because they have had me working 12 hours a day — not complaining mind you.
Speaking of Andros Island, Herman says that the big bonefish are starting to show up on the flats in Bowen Sound, Young Sound and Fresh Creek. He will be guiding all of next week and will give me day by day reports. I’m starting to count down the days as to when I head there and I’m ready for a bonefish fix.
It looks like I’ll have to take the boat out of winter storage next weekend as some anglers called and pleaded with me to take them out then. This time of year can be very unpredictable weather wise. If it turns winter again, I will just be enjoying some of that fire wood I gathered up.
With this warm weather the elk hunting has slowed up a bit. There must have been at least a dozen rigs go by my house today heading up Charcoal Gulch (Fleecer Mtn) but I didn’t see any animals taken out. They should have gone fishing.
