I wouldn't say soft, smarter maybe. We are way behind last year, and there wasn't a whole lot of fish being caught last year at this time. I might not go out until May ( if the ice is gone, ha )Years ago I would fish in this weather but now at 48 I can wait , I think I've gone soft with old age. On the bright side there shouldn't be many black flies or skeeters around tomorrow. Good luck to anyone who is tougher than me and heads out tomorrow.
