Trout Stocking Is Underway, Forsythia are blooming, redwing blackbirds have returned, spring peepers and woodcock will begin singing any day, daffodils are poking up, the worm moon has risen, river herring are starting to arrive, pussy willows will out in the swamps, cardinals calling are waking me up at first light, and the first striped bass will begin to trickle into our bay in just 5 more weeks! Ahhhhh…. My new fly rods are at the ready and I fired up the boat and it purrs like a kitten. Charters are stacked and “The Season” is on our doorsteps. NO SNOW this winter at all in Baymen Land. Did not shovel or plow even once. Temps have been above freezing other than those couple of wicked storms that brought – minus below zero for a few days. But that is all behind us and it is full steam ahead. First official First Day of Spring 11 days away…!
