Yesterday I was down out of the altitude where there wasn't much ice.
Standley Lake was fun and the weather was warm. Not a bite.
And this morning at Gross Reservoir where I had a very small puddle to fish. 2 hours and I ended up with frost nip on my thumb. Still no feeling in the tip. Super windy and cold. I was having to clear ice from my eyelets. Loved it.
So the bad news is that no one won except for me. I got to fish. And the good news, for us both, is that I will be fishing again next Friday/ Saturday/ Sunday (as well as Monday and Wednesday) and will simply carry the contest over to next weekend. I WILL be giving someone the Rudy Project sunglasses. Promise.
