A good skunking is 10 times harder in the cold! Come to think of it, my second to last trip was probably up there too, even though I didn't get skunked. I left the house without thermals on! Man, I was dyin' out there. When that sleet hit I'd just lipped two back to back, but skidaddled anyway.
I'm not getting in my tube until the water's a bit warmer. Or, unless I strike out three times on the shoreline. So far my bits are safe.
Hey, profundo; Welcome!
