On Friday I went out fishing in weather about 31F and very breezy and had a great time. The fish are slow, but they have to eat.
I climb/hike in winter (NH/VT/ME/ NY) all the time and have no issue with cold. BUT I'm with you on the whole nada to the circle in the ice and swinging a 2ft rod!! Guess my ADD would take over!
