Default Boating/Fishing in December

A bit warm this morning, looks to be about 39 degrees. However not sure I would be out fishing in a boat on Meredith Bay. Photo taken today, December 28, 2019 at 8:30am.

Perfect day to be out on the boat... off season is the best.

Not to be a party popper but it's usually the wind that kills you on a day like today and the mental determination to give up the comforts of home. The closest i'll get to fishing today is the tank at bass pro shops. But I'd go in a second if the boat was not so covered in snow.

If the comforts of home include a wife that reminds you of a mile long honey-do list that is going to take years to complete and a couple kids tearing around the house still revved up from Christmas, I think fishing on a day like today may not be such a bad option. Of course opinions may vary

I'm sorry but this weather is freaking me out that I can't go. Despite the F&G laws is there any open water at a any boat launches.

What a great day to go if you could, ........ wishing .......

I guess I'll be catalog fishing till spring.

As I recall ..... here in New Hampshire on great lakes which means a body of water at least 10-acres size ...... from January 1 to March 31, fishing through drilled holes in the ice IS allowed and fishing though natural openings or in open water IS NOT allowed.

Southwest Airlines has direct flights from Manchester to Tampa.

There the ice is not ambiguous like here.

It is always out.

That's a great place to fish this time of year...even if you catch nothing!

While I appreciate the suggestion and got me thinking about it and it's do-able. You have to admit nothing beats fishing on Winni out of your own boat in January. Fishing today would be like cheating death. Just like fishing on Christmas day few years ago.
