Well, it sort of is in the air. Daylight savings signifies that we will have days with longer daylight hours but Mother Nature doesn’t quite agree in New England that it means springtime. Regardless, I get very excited when daylight savings occurs in the spring even though we still have snowstorms. Warmer days will appear shortly, melting all the snow and warming up the air, and then come the end of April, I will go digging in my compost pile for worms and head out fishing.
I love to fish but only for trout and horned pout. Horned pouting is actually my favorite of the two. As you can see from the picture – I have no problem catching horned pout. That type of fishing is done in the darkness of the night. They tend to start biting shortly after dusk sets in and will bit all through the night.
Trout fishing is only allowed from dawn to dusk where I live. I kind of have a case of the butt with trout these days. It seems as though that they simply don’t want to let me catch them. The past two years – I didn’t catch a one! This year though, that is going to change – it has to! I can’t let my fifteen year old outdo her mother another year. That just can’t happen.
