or why I washed the boat today…
Spring seems to finally have sprung in Eastern Washington, with temps hovering around 60. As I slide further into my eighth decade I am not fishing much after November or before now. Even now the waters of the mid-Columbia and lower Snake Rivers are still in the 40s and I have yet to figure out how to catch bass this early.
Anyway, the ‘itch’ is serious, so it is time to get back out there. So, first order of business is to clean the accumulated Columbia River scum from last season off the boat. Even though it will be dirty again when I pull it out of the water tomorrow, it sure looks good now and makes me happy with anticipation of another fishing season.
Ready to go.
