As of today, 15 counties in northwest and north central North Carolina have been issued "Flood Warnings" for the next few days. Charlotte isn't likely to have serious flooding, but every thing that isn't paved is already muck. Tracking northeast, it appears that Colston will be needing his waders just to get to the poker game.

I suspect that the early stocked trout are well downstream from where they were released.

The highlight of my week was repairing a chain link fence in the backyard that a big tree had fallen upon. I did a creative Rube Goldberg fix, but from a distance it looks professional.

This was the last thing I needed to see. I drove drove home in the rain.

We had 3" of rain in the 6 hours from noon today. It is now 7:25 and it has been raining steadliy with heavy showers occasionally. Our fishing ain't going to be any better than yours this week. :(

We had -6° this AM when I got up...supposed to be 43° on Wednesday.

I can live with relatively stable weather, but this up and down that we've had since the beginning of the year is getting old.

...it does sorta look like things might stabilize after Wednesday...assuming the weather goblins are right...

Not to worry FN, once the DOW stabilizes, so will the temperatures. :mrgreen:

Spent another Sunday afternoon on the ice with 3 buddies. Fishing was a bit slow, especially after 2:30. Came home with 18 including 2 crappies. The biggest was 12 1/2inches. That puts over 200 fillets in the freezer for our Indy 500 day fish fry. Temp was in the 20's but the west ish wind was 10-15and it was chilly. With proper clothes, ( Carhartt arcticcoveralls) it was comfortable.

Question: In WI, 200 of anything in our freezer would be waaaaaaay over the possession limit...at least for a single license. Wondering if that is normal or unusual.

A while back, the DNR watched a successful ice fisherman catch his limit day after day after day...based on that, searched his house, had hundreds of fish frozen...bye by went his license, and he got fined thousands of dollars...

They caught the same guy out on the ice the next year...

I would guess that 200 or more crappie filets can be found in a large number fishermen's homes across the SE USA. That would only be two daily limits some places.

There is no bag or possession limit on Bluegill in Indiana. There is a daily bag limit on crappie of 25 and a possession limit of two daily bag limits, but does not apply to fish processed and stored at ones residence. in other words you can have a whole bunch of fish filleted and stored in your freezer for a fish fry.
