 Thought about checking my local water out when my feet went out from under me my coffee flew up in the air, hit my head, got back up and went back inside and said to my wife "what was I thinking?" be safe out there, beware of black ice.

Hope you are ok and didn’t break something

Not just the thinking changes, the fish, the bay, the rivers, it's all changing all the time.

 

Just think of the changes we've seen in our lifetimes.

Even the 20 years some of us been discussing it on forums have seen big changes. 

Look at the recent surge of big stripers in Canada. A recent development. How long will it last?

 

The Chesapeake and its rivers have major water quality issues. Rollbacks on environmental regs, drought, crazy storms with floods, more pig farms...

Big breeders targeted. Even C&R of breeders in those warm, compromised waters...

 

Maybe the Hudson and points north will have to pick up some slack?

What I find absolutely fascinating is what I read in Karas’s book is that after the industrial revolution there was such a lack of stripers up here that famous clubs like the cuttyhunk fishing club basically shut down due to lack of fish, due to the widespread damming of the rivers up here killing the local stock.  The theory is then the Chesapeake and the Hudson River stock basically learned to migrate up here filling in the void creating what we have today, nature is truly incredible.

Yesterday morning I was driving along the Belt and swore I was seeing stirring water under diving birds.  I was thinking “bait ?” but could not convince myself.  I guess it was !
