Daily Fishing and Outdoor Report
Saturday, February 28, 2015: It was a fine-ish day out there. I did a nice a.m. Holgate run. Ran into Refuge Officer Chris along with refuge volunteer Stu D. Chatted a bit then did what I figured would be quick in/out Holgate tip run. Not so. I first ran into a very down and out long-tail duck. I…Continue

Friday, February 27, 2015: It’s the middle of an iced in, snowed in, bored in winter and still I’m busy to the hilt. Whenever news hits, it hits my desk very early on. Then, there are follow up and what I call trickle-down effects.

Tuesday, February 24, 2015: Brutally hard day at work … and life. The explosion in Stafford threw The SandPaper office into high gear, with Victoria Ford doing the initial fact-seeking and write-up. See http://thesandpaper.villagesoup.com/?cid=4114767.
Here’s the moment of ignition as seen from a…Continue
Sunday, February 22, 2015: As a testament to just how frozen over we were, this rain and milder weather is really not eating away at the snow and ice the way I thought it might. I had the delusion I’d wake up this morning and see the snow pack all but…Continue

And still makes the bus!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oorah.
Wednesday, February 18, 2015: The beach drives are fully hazardous, mainly where sand-ice blocks the way. Sand-ice are those chunks of breakaway beach that get deposited at the high tide line -- and often cross…Continue

Tuesday, February 17, 2015: You know how they say it’s not the heat it’s the humidity? Well, it’s not so much the snow … it’s the being here.

We don't often get snow in these parts. Just sayin'.
Sunday, February 15, 2015: What a revoltin’ development this is. Not only are we going to freeze our asses down to the bone tonight but later in the week another similar arctic blast is going to go single-digit on those prefrozen asses – taking us…Continue
"I guess that means 'No!' to a date, right?"
Saturday, February 14, 2015: You know as well as me the weather seldom plays out the way it’s planned, i.e. forecasted. But if this system explodes just off the coast – and just to our north -- we could see wrap around winds easily the equivalent of…Continue

"WTF!" Did you see what that damn thing just did."
Friday, February 13, 2015: I’m not for torture; an awful thing. But, hypothetically speaking, I believe a couple/few water-boardings would not be out of line for whoever invented the expression, “Cold enough for…Continue
"I'll take that ... It's bad for your teeth, kid."
Thursday, February 12, 2015: We got snows showers, sinking temps and seals.

Tuesday, February 10, 2015: Well, today’s start of a new batch of witch’s tit coldness has me thinking in terms of going out and chain sawing some blowdown (trees). It’s one of the only activities lending itself to getting out and…Continue

Below: Lesson in the thaw.
Monday, 9, 2015: Welcome to a mighty damp and winter-encrusted day. No, there’s no sleet/snow – like they’re getting to our north – but it’s really raw and cold on the beach. I still did a bit of a drive and, short of large surf and some high…Continue

Friday, February 06, 2015: It’s still cold and raw and windy … I say ef-it-all!

"That's the funniest thing I've heard in my whole life ..."
Thursday, February 05, 2015: I’m surely struggling with subject matter in here. That’s not to say there aren’t things going on out there but I’m just not on the hunt as much -- with these blasted blasts of…Continue

Tuesday, February 03, 2015: It’s cold and clueless out there. I’m sorta serious about that “clueless’ part. As much as I revere the greatness of the great…Continue
