What an incredibly beautiful day for March. And it looks like there are plenty more on the way.
Of course, before I could venture outside on this gorgeous day, there was writing to be done. Luckily though, reports are still pretty thin and I was able to finish early. By that time, Lindsay was back from feeding her pet stray cat, George, near her office and we headed to the park.
I was hoping the warm sunny day would have the carp feeding in the shallows, and after looking around for a bit, I thought I spied a few. We propped up chairs, set out the chum, cast the rods out and starting making more wedding and honeymoon preparations. During our planning, I took time the time to re-bait and re-chum a couple of times, but whatever was disturbing the water in front of me either wasn't carp or wasn't biting.
It really didn't matter all that much.
