    We didn't move around much yesterday.

    I usually go out of Cleveland either at the dock or down the rd to Godfrey on the north shore.
    I also go to Chapman park on the south shore near town of Sullivan.
    We used to go a little West of Lewis Pt. for bass and around the second buoy west from Sylvan Beach for deep water walleye - I think it gets down to 40+ feet. For shallow water walleye in 20' of water off Sylvan Beach among the weeds use 3/4oz yellow feather jig with a worm on a trailer treble hook about 2" back, jig 1 to 2' off bottom. You can get close to the bed about 3/4 way out on the Sylvan Beach pier. On the Canal side of the pier you can get occasional Northern on a red/white dare devil or a Rapala. Good night fishing there with a Coleman lantern to if you can stand the bugs.
    We could not get into Cleveland, too shallow with shoals all the way out to the channel.

    So far, is this winter colder, warmer or about the same temps.?
    I don’t know the official stats for the winter so far but past couple weeks have been bitter cold. We’re probably behind on snowfall but that’s fine with me. I’ll take cold with good travel conditions over moderate temps with more snow and ice.

    Standard heat rate is $3.14 but we have several price tiers based on usage so it can be more or less depending. Our pre-buy price was about what your at now so those folks who bought in are saving huge this year.
    My provider (I have a choice of 3) doesn't offer a pre-buy option. None of them do.
    We're kinda at the mercy of the market.
    We do have a choice of "monthly" service or "minimum delivery".
    We use so little gas, monthly would be a real pain to a delivery driver.
    AND...."minimum delivery", I can schedule and budget for instead of another monthly bill.

    Edit: a "minimum delivery" is 100 gallons and is normally delivered within 48 hours.

    Saw a whole bunch of deer
    I have noticed the deer population explodes after deer season.

    My brother is having an overnight stay on the ice on Oneida and I might go in the morning.

    Curious fitch270, how are LP prices running up there. We're up to 2.40/gal.

    Will be working again tomorrow and I’m planning to work for awhile on Sunday as well. Been running flat out for weeks as it is but this cold snap is really putting the pressure on.

    On a side note my daughter took the younger dog for a walk on our hill yesterday, she said the brassica plot is absolutely tore up. There’s only 6-8” of snow on the ground but a couple nights near -20* this week must have them on whatever feed they can get to. It’s a big part of why I put the effort into it.

    Dan, I have a buddy that is the best grouse hunter I have ever seen. He spots them on the ground and hits them when they jump up. One shot, one grouse. Me, 3 or 4 shots, maybe one bird.

    It's kind of like New Jersey, though -- all the focus is on urban areas, when there's some seriously wild and beautiful country there. I believe the Tap Tapply and his son William, both FS writers, trout-fished and grouse-hunted in Massachusetts.

    I hear you on the taxes, but being a New Yorker, I can't say much.

    Nothing here except a few more days of single digit nights, then some warming.
    Like Danbo said, it's supposed to stay in New England, maybe just brushing the eastern edge of New York. Those poor suckers in Boston, forecast says up to two feet.

    Yep, I've had a couple of near misses on the road lately -- with one of them, the deer stopped smack in the middle of the road, I was just a few feet away when I came to a stop. Then I had to honk and start inching up on it before it got out of the way.

    Enjoy the fishing if you go.

    Last I heard it was going to be east of me.
