Fished a small pond in Lincoln on 4 inches of solid black after work yesterday for about an hour.  1 flag, no fish.
Keep those holes clean and smooth

6 inches solid black ice on Wilson's Saturday. We had 2 quads and a side bye.  Fished with 8 or 9 guys, Tons of Flags, just not on my tilts.  Only got 3... but all were nice Bass.

Got 2 hours in on Bowdish on Monday right in front of the house still haven't found a fish yet...Pretty damn cold I must say. I did bag out Sunday.... Lost power so had more stuff to do during the storm than I thought.

Fished Bowdish Saturday within sight of the the house. Set 3 traps while I did some work on may breakwater walls. couple bait flags but no fish. I'm starting to warm up to the 2X4 idea of clearing the weeds......Hmmmm.

That caught my eye as well. I wonder if an oar might be even more effective?  ??? Then again, not much is as inexpensive as a 2x4.

Ohh Good one I have a set in my Boat shack. The "Ash Wind" as we used to refer to them from my sailing days. Good One Eiderz I'll use that. May have to get a bigger auger as I have a 6". an 8 would give me a little more swing with it. Thanks !!!

I love rowing. I'll need a new pair of oars for the drift boat soon, time to stop at Shaw and Tenney this summer.

I grew up on the coast of Maine and the best fishing platform I ever used was and old wooden rowboat with a sculling pocket. Takes some practice to get the hang of it  but man you can get some places and fish standing up.....

Only sculling I've done is duck hunting, it definitely takes practice. And you need to decide, inside or backside cup of the oar, wrist or arm motion. Big arguments to be had.  ;) Did quite a bit of poling for fish on shallow flats and to hunt railbirds in the marsh.

The railbirds have me interested.

They're quirky little birds. You only get a few favorable high tides which coincide with the migration each year so it's a hit or miss thing. Very hard work poling.

Waterman has tightened up along the edges considerably (by sight at least.) I suspect most of Northern RI looks pretty good after the last couple days. 1 degree yesterday morning, 3 degrees today.
