Just a few pics of my on-the-water 2013 kickoff. Drysuit and PFD, check. This was no great journey, just a little 1.5 mile trip upriver and back, as I wanted to make it home in time to turn around and run back out for an afternoon flintlock hunt. I did some fishing along the way, but couldn't coax a bite. Smallmouth fishing is tough this time of year, but I loved the quiet and solitude.
My first outing will be the end of April when we do a clean-up of trash of a couple miles of Chartiers Creek. Can't wait. I am hoping the weather cooperates, and there is no snow along the banks like the pics you posted!
Quarry mine, blessed am I
In the luck of the chase.
