Today ended a lot better than it started, albeit without any fish.
I guess I was really enjoying the weekend. Nice weather and pike fishing on Saturday followed by a relaxing Sunday without TOO much writing to do. I was not feeling going back to work.
After begrudgingly getting out of bed and throwing back some coffee, I wasn't feeling much better. Still, I made it out the door without too much trouble.
As it turned out, the owner of the business I was meeting with was a fisherman. I always enjoy meeting with my kind, because before we sit down to talk we usually shoot the breeze about our hobby and exchange stories. It turned out to be a fantastic way to start the week.
After my appointment, things were looking good. The sun had come out and I had some nightcrawlers in the cooler with my lunch.
In separate bags...of course.
As I approached Johnson Park Pond to eat my lunch, I immediately noticed the ice on it. Well, part of it. I had half a mind to fish the Raritan River since it was just a few yards from the pond, but I figured I'll save the moving water should the temperatures take a nose-dive this week.
I drowned a couple crawlers for 30 minutes, but nothing.
Oh well, tomorrow is another day.
