On Lake Norman, right now (8 AM) , the temp. is 21 degrees and WylieCat and a buddy drove one hour to fish for some stipers on LKN. He just called me and asked me why I did not tell him not to do it! Well, he did not ask me! He informed me that his trolling motor was frozen onto the holding bracket and thus they could not troll. Also, his landing net is froze to the boat. If that isn't enough, the lid to his bait tank is frozen in place. I said " man just get your bucket and pour some water on these items and they will thaw" and he informed me that he did not have a bucket. So, I told him to use what mother nature had given them and he said no way in this cold! Don't you just enjoy it when everything goes just right?:smile2: I bet he will remember this trip for a long time.
