In hindsite...2020!

I though I would get one more shot at some fishies before they year ended but it was not to be. It was a decent year of fishing despite river conditions and the C- virus!

The 1st fish came tight on January 13!

And then a few more when we had a good weather window...

I really thought we would have a good year after catching a few in Jan-Feb-Mar.

Late March at Fletcher's was fun!

Then...we were told to flatten the Covid curve for a couple of weeks. And many ramps were closed down!

Couldn't take it anymore so we got out and the "O" did not disappoint...even if we started late!

Then we caught a few on the UP.

Had a decent early July smallie day (10) with Bob and then 2-3 more trips of 1-2 fish...no more UP for a while!

Now, it was perch time!

John, Quinn an I caught 586 white perch...this is NOT a misprint. Old record was 315! It was insane!

Meanwhile, back at the "O"!

So...12/12 was my last day on the water in 2020. Despite some lost time to the pandemic, still managed to get out a bunch of times. Definitely thankful for that!


Time to go fishin' again!

Re: In hindsite...2020!

Wait...bourbon at 11:35a?

I think we all made the best of it once the ramps started opening up. In my non medical, non professional opinion, being outside is the #1 public enemy of the Rona!


Time to go fishin' again!
