I have been down here for about 2 weeks and have been fishing twice. No fish and no boat. The boat I am using for the winter is in the repair shop……the engine doesn’t even make a sound and there is corrosion everyhwere. It has worked very well in the past from what I hear. I have a positive attitude.

I have seen a few snook and redfish crusing around but I have not had good shots at them. Hopefully, next week I will have time to get over to Titusville and fish with a friend over there for reds. His boat runs and he knows the area well. I did take a drive with Holly yesterday to Ocala. We were hoping to fish for bass in the 8 – 10 lb range, but it rained solid for two days.

The snow pack for the Madison Range is at 108% of normal for this time of the year. There has been good snow so far and if we cross our fingers and our toes we should get it all winter. Pray to the snow gods. The Gallatin Range is at 124%. Big Sky Ski Resort is open and so is the Tram. I would love a powder day, but I guess I can settle for shorts, sandals and the beach instead.
