Good Morning. It’s a cloudy morning here in Port Loring, Ontario. And it is a touch cool, with the temperature sitting at 8.5 C | 47.3 F. I actually had to put some heat into our home this morning for the first time. The winds are from the east, which as they used to say is; Isn’t Fit For Man Nor Beast. I have to agree with that old quote. We should see some sunshine later on. Highway 522 has slowed down a wee bit. The bugs for the year has pretty well left us, too, which makes it nice to be out there fishing. Not that I have been out there lately, as my wife and I have been really busy trying to get things done up before winter. We still have to bring in our firewood, which I suspect we will get at next weekend. I managed to paint all the walls in our basement this year, so it is all set for winter. It brightened up things a lot. It wasn’t a hard job, as a few years ago I bought a paint sprayer which I never used, so I figured I would put it to good use. Worked slick and cut the painting time down to less than half, and it also saved a lot of paint. Yesterday, my lovely wife and I started in on our flower gardens, working them up and cutting some of them down in size. We did do some major work on them earlier in the year, now we are finishing it up. It is quite a job with all the bending and digging. But if things goes to plan, we should have them in shape by the end of the day. After that, the wife wants to plant some tulips for next spring. Always something to do. With that I am off for my morning bowl of oatmeal and will then see what the day has in store. You never know what a day might bring. Take care and stay safe, the numbers are rising with infections regarding this virus that is among us. GW
Fishing Times: Today my old weather stick is saying that the best time to be out there with your line in the water will be between 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM and then again from 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM. With the winds coming in from the East, I don’t suspect it is going to be the greatest day for fishing. I give it a 2-Star Rating out of 5 for catching a few. You might want to bring along a warm jacket along with your raincoat. Good Luck! Oh, and maybe a thermos of hot coffee.
