In just a matter of a few day's, we go from this,

To this.

It has been in the mid to upper 60's for the last few days. Walking around in short sleeves, and driving with the windows down. But this morning we wake up to some snowfall again.

Oh well, it is not sticking, and it mostly melts when it hits the ground. The little tease of warm weather had me out in the shed looking over my fishing rods and checking my baits.Here where I live on the Potomac in the Northern Neck, just above the Chesapeake Bay, Many people are preparing for the migration of the Rockfish that come in around late April to early June.

The ads are out for charters as well for the early run that has already started in the mouth of the bay, and word has it that some big fish are being caught.

As for me, I have my own boat, so I wait until the fish get into the Potomac near Westmoreland State Park and troll for them as they continue towards the 301 Bridge. I give it about another 2 weeks and I will take the boat down and put in at Colonial Beach for a trip to St. Clements Island and back up to the 301 bridge for a look see.
