That's cold! What's your average temperature this time of year?

YT checking-in.  Been a beauty ice-making month of November.  Steady lows <-25C, and highs <-15C.

Got out on Sunday on about 7" on a local pond for escaped hatchery rainbows. 

My son (3) refuses to do the reeling, but is happy to take the credit for the biggest fish of the day coming on his rod... :P

That's due to the wind or in this case a very light breeze.
We don't have much in the way of humidity up here.
It disappears as it hits the Rockies before it gets to us.
We are in a semi arid region and don't get a lot of rain or snow.
I wish we go more snow 'cause snowmobiling is more fun EH!!!  ^_^

Been busy with my cabin the last couple of years.
Haven't had much time for fishing. Been entered into the tourney just in case I get time though.
Hopefully this year. Need to regain my pike title!!!
