hard to believe its been a month since i ice fished. we walked the plank in the dark. ah, well. more glass, less bass, for the good man gankadank.

Image

Image

Image

lets find out what the fuck that is down there.

Image

oh, a gross pickerel that choked on a sunfish.

Image

then all that beautiful ice melted. downflag days.

Image

fucked with these little guys on a decently warm afternoon on a 7'#4 kabuto. before a series of snowstorms rolled up the coast and punched new england in the fuck.

Image

Image

Image

later skaters. euro nymphin season. sleep when i'm dead.

Nice chadroc. No glass here, but there's a few bass

We had an over-nighter out of the canoes. There were chicken nests among the karsty bluffs. I cast once while we stopped to abuse the dog but other than that it was all about her until we made camp. Once we were settled I went out solo and caught two fish on a cf baitfish. One of them turned out to be the best smallmouth I've ever caught. It rained the next day but I hardly noticed

wheres the gank? here we go.

early springtime stuff.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

sugar houses are great places to get drunk on saturday nights. this guy does it right. we put the sausages right under the belly of the beast. with crackers, hot pepper jelly, and cheddar cheese.

Image

Image

Image

Image

when the sausages get cold. you can put them in a mason jar and fill it with hot syrup.

Image

you can then add chunks of cheddar cheese which will get goopy and shit.

Image

or just dip cheddar in the syrup, which is fine.

Image

we go out into the woods to walk some lines, just to have something to do in the cold night. one is down, dave restrings it like a boss.

Image

Image

burn the board when everybody full.

Image

go out euro nymphing with my aching back.

more spring shit. amphibiax shit.

Image

Image

Image

Image

carnage on the wet roads. slick with amphibian guts. incredible the migrations that take place on wet warm nights in new england.

Image

Image

i collected nine species of amphibians. green frog, wood frog, peep frog, grey tree frog, american toad, unknown toad, yellow spotted salamander and red backed salamander in about an hour.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

really cool being out on a rainy night listening to tunes, rolling slow down back roads near vernal pools. all of the animals were released in their general areas after showing my kids them in the morning. i had over thirty toads in a cooler, for effect. see? this is the shit right out there living in these woods? pretty fucking cool. what they didn't know was that the now retired cooler was for one night a furious orgy. none the wiser, until they are.....

Image

i released the yellow spotted's in a remote location. these salamanders can grow to 12" in length and live to thirty years. they are burrowing mole salamanders, and i could not believe how fast they did just that and burrowed away.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

i hit up a bass pond or two.

Image

Image

Image

Image

felt really good to do a little paddle.

Image

Image

got a lotta fish. nothin big, though. and they only wanted the little tiny fly.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

couple nights later i got one on top. it was starting to get warm again, everythings getting green.
