Hit the water with Alex today.

We expected it to be dirtier and moving faster than it was. We also kind of hoped it would be a little less uncomfortable than it was, but you know how that turned out. Coldest feeling 50 degree day I can remember.

We fished from a little before 7 until just about noon. Caught more fish on the incoming than on the outgoing, but the better fish seemed to bite better when the current started rolling out at a decent clip after it turned.

We got some keepers in training, and a few actual keepers, but no really good fish. Biggest keeper was a hair under 32.  Hoping for bigger, but until today, I felt like Feburary was making me pay for my 33 keeper January, because my first few trips of the month had produced a grand total of 1 legal fish. And that was on the first, so I figured that fish just hadn’t checked the calendar before biting my lure.

Watched Steve hammer a few February keepers including a 41 incher, from his back seat, but I just couldn’t connect with one. Until today, anyway. So even if my two were only 29 inchers, it still felt good to break my keeper drought this month.

Sorry for the lousy pics — conditions were anything but conducive for photography this morning. Didn’t even want to dig in the inner pocket of the rain gear to get the phone out, to tell you the truth.
