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.
