When I checked my email inbox and saw the message from The Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry titled “Maine Lake Ice Out Dates Updated” I just about swooned. While I’m sure ice fishermen would disagree, I look forward to this yearly event that signifies the coming of spring. More importantly, I yearn for the approach of the open water fishing season and the pursuit of my favorite spring and summer pastime – bass fishing.
It’s about a month early here in Maine to start seeing and hearing the sights and sounds of spring. But along the ridge, inexplicably, it’s happening.
This sound in particular is one my of favorites, the visual even more stunning….
