It 'WAS' A great start to the day.

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with WHISPERING PINES REALTY 20398180

I awoke this morning and headed out to the lake...

It was a beautiful sunrise.

I boated over to my favorite spot, dropped in the trolling motor and started to cast.  After a few casts the first fish fell to my bait.

  It was a nice 4 pound Bass.  I unhooked him and slid him back into the water to live another day.

I started casting and all HELL broke loose.   The phone rang and my wife was yelling at me to grab it.....Then...I woke up to 24 degrees and a sciff of snow on the ground.

It was back to the grindstone once again!

I was thinking the same thing. Been on a few winter fishing trips, 24 degrees on the water ain't no fun!

Suzanne, I actually was dreaming a few days ago about fishing.

Doug...I am not a cold weather fisherman for in a boat.  On the Ice I need a house.

It was a beautiful morning! Beautiful photo. Happy fishing - the weather will be warm again soon and maybe you really will catch that 4 lb bass!

Happy Birthday, now that the cat is out of the bag.  And, oh, I am dreaming about fishing, too.  If the Damn lakes would just freeze up.

I love those kind of dreams, although I don't know if it makes the winter go by and sooner.

Happy Birthday!

Have an awesome day!
