Not enough fishing.

Too much good water in town or within 40 miles, but access is a problem unless you drag a boat (hole in the water) behind you or a kayak/canoe with a depth finder.

My favorite for walleyes and small mouth bass is the Mississippi River between St. Paul and Minneapolis from shore, but you need to be willing to climb/almost walk down to the river about 50-75 feet below. Nothing beats working the water from the shore with a very, very steep rock/sand bottom and current and getting a 5# small-mouth bass or walleye with only about 15 feet of line out.

I do some lazy fishing in boats, but that takes some planning and reliance on the weather man.

I just got a sweater out. High of 50 today. Can't say we had Indian summer yet as we have to have a frost first.

Chris we hang our fish the other way by tails. Then when mercury drops we cut off the heads.

It is now (9:23 PM - CST) and the temp is 39.0F (40F at one of the official local stations) after a nice clear, cool day (north wind) and might get a little lower, but not a frost tomorrow morning.

The cities and counties are sending out the hired hunters to do the annual thinning of the deer population. I had 3 wild turkeys on my patio this afternoon, but they know it is not the turkey season here now. Somehow, they get smart when the season opens.

EDIT - Wind died so it will be a frosty night except for in the cities.
