It is quickly becoming one of my favorite times as well. I only had a few outings in November but they were 20+ fish outings that lasted 3-4 hours. I went out 12/23 for my December fishing outing and caught 45 in 3 1/2 hours. All stocked fish but that is primarily what is convenient around me. Its really hard not to want to fish in the colder months. I know I am bound to have a few bad days but no bugs, cooler temps, and I have the place nearly to myself. Its really a great time to get out. It will be even better once I get new waders. I have a really slow leak at the boot/wader seam which eventually becomes a problem if I stand in deep water to long.
