Yesterday I had a fellow who had a party of four people and he wanted to go striper fishing today. I informed him that it would be 22 degrees at first light today, with wind out of the NW at 12 MPH at first light. He said so, what are you saying. I told him that if it was just 22 degrees with little or no wind, I would take them, but with 12 to 15 MPH no way. Then he told me that he normally went with Capt. Gus and Capt. Craig but they were both booked today or they would have taken his party. I told him thanks, but no thanks. Capt. Gus called me this morning about something else and I told him the story about his referral and what transpired and then I asked him where he was fishing. I ain't fishing he said, it's too damn cold, I'm home doing some articles for the newspaper. Now I know how to take care of extreme cold weather request when they occur. Now the good news. Every month I receive a request to fill out a fishing supply survey and I've often wondered if anyone ever won the monthly prize of $100. Now I know that they do.
