A small, maybe 10ft iceless hole has began to form on the lake I am targeting this season. Considering the lake is almost 90 acres, it’s probably not something to get too worked up about. Unlike the past few years, I am dealing with the winter with little urgency. I’ve learned the hard way that getting all desperate to be fishing again does nothing good for me. The winter has become a nice break from the manic ordeal otherwise known as my “carp angling”.
Here’s a fun fact: The Rhode Island Health Department recommends that you get a rabies vaccination if you have an encounter with bats. The dosage varies depending on your weight. For example, a 3 year old girl gets 3 shots and a pudgy adult man gets 6. Did I mention they are given to you all at once? It’s not so much getting bit that is a concern - it’s more like the saliva.
