|We finally got out on the water.|
First we had to wait for the boat to arrive, up from the Florida Keys.
Then we had to do some maintenance work on the boat...repaint the bottom, etc.
Then, last week we tried to get out one day and couldn't as there were small-craft warnings posted.
Then we had a minor problem with the motor...wouldn't tilt down...had to fix that which cost us another day off the water
Then, finally, on Monday we got out to fish.
|There were some signs of spring along the banks of the lower Housatonic River...some bushes were greening up...forsythia blooming in many of the back yards.|
First place we saw fish on the Garmin was about two minutes from the dock...but we couldn't get those fish to bite...they might have been river herring...or just plain obstinate.
So we headed upstream and found some more cooperative stripers.
