I was supposed to be on a 2 day fishing trip out of Shell Beach with “Capt.” Hylton, but a text from David Bernard yesterday PM “suggested” we should be happy with just one fishing day as Thursday looked stormy, especially between 5-7 AM. We decided to head home before dark and not even try fishing Thursday morning. Sure enough, I awoke to pouring rains that would have made fishing impossible. Now I wasn’t disappointed since we caught our limit of 75 trout on Wednesday along with 9 reds. Now David can’t give you a personal text, but I watched the news after the World Series game 2 and he clearly showed you why it was not going to be a nice start to our Thursday. Thank you David and, who knows, I might bring you some trout!
Rainfall generally was between 1-3” with most of it falling between 6-8 AM. Cooler and drier air will filter in overnight, but this is not a blast from the Arctic. It will hang around through the weekend with highs in the mid-70s on Saturday and back above 80 on Sunday. I don’t see any winter like cold coming for the next 7-10 days. Of note, even though Alaska remains mild (above freezing), sub-zero cold is building over Hudson Bay. Usually for us, our “Polar Vortex” begins with bitter cold developing over Alaska coming southward 7-10 days later. So far, no signs of that.
I posted in a previous blog that I am involved in a fundraiser and need your help to reach my goal of raising $3,000. I suggested that if 300 of my followers donated just $10, I’d reach that goal . As one of my followers pointed out, there is no $10 option, just $5,20, 50 or 100. OK, if 600 of you donated just $5, I’d reach my goal. So far thank you to those who’ve donated $420 to that goal. I hope more of you can help. See the following;
