Sucks that you got the ol' skunk. Maybe you should've tried before the storm? I too have noticed that after a cold front as big as the one that came through today, the fishing usually hits rock bottom right after.

We are 2 weeks too early... Water in most areas is in the 40s still and it will be at least 2 weeks before we really see the bass catch fire... - BPM

Hey Mike. I fished from 12:30pm until 3:00pm at the same elgin pond, If it's the one we talked about before. My buddy came up with 1 small bass and I got snapped by shore by a pike. That was it for the day. You maybe wanna get out there this weekend?

Call it a triple skunk. I got out for the last 15 minutes of daylight to my backyard pond. One strike and miss right off the bat, and nothing but numb hands after that. We need a little warm up.
