Note that from now on, all my fishing reports will be posted separately instead of a big monthly post. This will make the "search" button above more useful. After all, it is a pain to type in a specific word, and have a gigantic post show up. I recommend using "Ctrl+F" (search function) in that kind of situation.
Also, I've started the Statistical Fishing Chart for 2013. It's pretty empty now, but I'll be filling it as a fish along the year!
Since I spent my new year at my sister's place in Trevose, the Lake Luxembourg was my first fishing session of the year. My sister, brother-in-law, and nephew joined me for a quick fishing session at the spillway below the big Lake. Since they are not very fond of the cold (temperatures at 30-37F), I knew the session would be pretty quick, and my chances of getting skunked were pretty high. Not surprisingly, there was no one fishing at the big Lake. There were people jogging, walking their dogs (as usual), but nobody fishing the wooden docks and no boats near the water output.
Haha. That's exactly what happened, as a matter of fact. No fish for the day. I got a total of 3 bites on the nightcrawler, but failed to pull any fish out of there. I got to see a Rainbow Trout coming up at a certain point, but I lost it because of a poor hookset.
Despite the skunk, it was fun to be outside with my family on the first day of the year. My 5 years old nephew had a fun time playing with one of my fishing rods too.
I took some pictures of the local scenery. Enjoy!
