Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving morning with air temperatures below freezing was the setting for Jim's Susquehanna River adventure.  The air was still without a breeze as Jim was prepared with his Aftco gear for the cold weather as they set out for the day of fishing.  With the recent cold nights and many cold days the water temperature would only be 38-39 on this day which can be very challenging to get bites in the frigid water.  Jim who is a long time client, thoroughly enjoys cold water fishing and relished in the opportunity.  Jim used a variety of approaches as the guides of the rod froze up consistently for about 1 1/2 hours in the morning until the sun came over the ridge.  Slow and methodical with a lot of patience worked for Jim on this day as he would land five nice smallmouth bass and lost a few others while the blue skies shone overhead throughout the adventure.  We at Legends Outdoors would like to wish all a very Happy Thanksgiving on this very special holiday.
