Gave it a shot yesterday from 3:30-4:45. Tossed metal and storms with no bumps, no hits, no fish. Saw birds working waaaaaaaaay out in the distance, but only floaters up close. Another thing to think about...it is the New Year, which means a new license is required. I had to go to court last summer because I didn't have my license on me at Rudee, fine dropped which I showed it to the judge. Bottom line in this ramble is don't get hemmed up for not having a license.
