Day 295: Pit Stop

A gloomy evening on Victor Crowell.
When: Friday, March 2nd, from 5:30pm to 6pm
Where: Victor Crowell Park in Middlesex
What: Fishing with waxworms
Weather: Overcast, 40 degrees, E wind at 8mph
Barometric Pressure: 29.95in and falling
Moon: Waxing, a couple days past the first quarter
Water Conditions: Muddy

By the time Friday rolled around, I was pretty beat. I had been running around all week between work, fishing and evening engagements, and this day was no different.

Luckily, I'm starting to put together a gameplan on how I can keep this alive with the new time constraints, and part of that plan involves Victor Crowell Park in Middlesex. I've been experimenting with different ways to get home, and this park/pond can be made into a quick pit stop. It's produced some nice carp for me in the past, but I wasn't quite prepared to go carp fishing Plus, I don't think the carp are quite ready to bite yet.

I did have some waxworms, but once again not much time to fish. I thought I would pull a panfish or two from around the docks, but the water was very muddy and the conditions were not conducive to good fishing.

Still, another day closer to the goal and another day closer to Spring.

It still felt like winter today.
