Sunday was a pivotal day in my 365 Day of Fishing....Monday was the first day that I had to contend with it.

Since I’ve now lost an hour of daylight at the end of each day, I figure I’ll have to start getting up early and taking advantage of the morning light to avoid fishing in the dark after work. I thought I’d start out on the right foot Monday morning so I set my alarm for 6:00 am. It quickly became apparent that the extra hour we gained with the clocks going back wasn't going to do me much good that day as I hit the snooze button for the 6th, 7th and 8th time.

There is no doubt that at some point this situation will be impossible to avoid, but I'm trying to put it off as long as possible.

Oh well.

So, after work, with the sun already down, I headed to Farrington Lake to see if I couldn't catch crappie from the bridge like I saw Bob doing months ago.

No dice.

Not even sure what to say about that. Fishing is getting very tough with water temperatures falling into the 40's.

I have a hunch I'm looking for quality over quantity at this point.
