Only The Lonely

I guess I was the only one dumb enough to be out in this weather.

Left and right from where I was parked. I don't see anyone, do you?

I had a couple of errands to run in town (Jackson) this morning and since I couldn't do anything until about Noon, I took a run out to the North Shore of Lake Camanche. In case you don't know, Lake Camanche is just south of town, maybe 15 miles.

I would have taken my neighbor Roy along, but I didn't think he would appreciate me calling him at 0515 and saying "Hey, lets go fishing". To go was one of those "instant" decisions that happen.

It was foggy, wet, but no wind when I got there. We were expecting the wind to pick up later and blow out the fog. The wind did pick and by 1100 it was blowing steady at about 20 mph. The valley is expecting wind gusts up to 50+ mph today and tomorrow.

Since I didn't catch anything (I did get one bump at 0830), I guess the fish weren't even dumb enough to be out in this weather.

Enjoy the pictures and be glad you're inside where its warm and toasty.

Till next time.



  1. I know how it feels. Wet nasty weather. Fish anyway.

  2. This year I have done better in bad weather than clear sky\warm days and would suggest that fishing bad weather is dumb like a fox. Casting in 20mph is way better than 50mph…I would say your timing was as good as possible, all things considered. Always good to see a Shoreman post.

    The scenery there makes up for the loss fish. If it is below 50 it is too cold for me to be on the water. I really like the image at the top of your blog.

  4. I was about to add to your picture caption ("You can't see anybody left or right of where I was parked') saying, "Yea, and no fish either". Those darn fish better pick up the pace in Northern California or it is going to be a long season for the Shoreman!
