Screw it, I'm going fishing.................
OK, five hours later, here's the story.
Pulled out of the house at 8:15. Temperature 27 degrees. When I got to lake it was 31 degrees. The only saving grace was that I was sitting with my back to the wind. Carhart hooded jacket and gloves and I still froze. I even took a thermos of Mendocino Hotel blend (same as they serve at the hotel in Mendocino) coffee and drank the whole thing. Finally just after Noon it got warm enough to take the gloves off, but not the jacket.
I threw everything I had at them and was totally ignored. I did see a couple caught and the were using the same bait as I was.
So 2017 starts out a:
Just so the day isn't ruined completely I took a couple pictures for your pleasure.

So a stinky start to 2017, but I'll keep trying.
