Lucky for me, the temperature continued to drop and the rain didn’t relent for the remainder of that trip. I even cut it off early and headed home hoping to catch a reprieve, but no, the rain and cold followed. Before the two weeks were up, I finally got the boat out on a bass lake and caught one on my second cast. It’s still too cold for me right now. As I write this, we are in the middle of another cold snap, and it was 38 degrees in Central Florida this morning, enough to make our family of Floridians cry out in pain as we headed out the door.
