Fishing or Freezing?

Well, it was a long weekend.  Friday was nice on the water with a gentle breeze and it was really relaxing, but I only caught 3 baby flounder and a mangrove snapper and a couple of croaker, none of which made their way into the ice chest.  All in all, it was a nice day.

Overnight the front blew in and on Saturday we were just sitting in the boat freezing.  The wind was gusty and cold and we came in once just to go get some hot chocolate because we were freezing.  Then we came in again another time, to watch the game for a while - any excuse to get warm.  When they went back out the last time, I stayed in the warm condo.

Hopefully next week will be better all around.

This weekend is fishing for flounder in Gulf Shores, AL.  It appears that a cold front is headed our way so I'm not sure how long I'll last out there if the wind picks up and the temperature drops.  In a boat on the water, the wind chill really racks up, if you know what I mean.
