As I write this the temperature at 2 PM is 32 degrees with freezing rain and a strong easterly wind. Not what you would want or expect for an April 16 afternoon even in Maine. Patriots Day is today here in New England a regional holiday that is at times as confusing as the weather. The bank and state offices are closed but the mail is delivered.
Yesterday's striper fishing trip was slow on the fish count but the wildlife more than made up for the fishing. It was an early start with a low tide. Before we even got on the boat there were two deer on the opposite side of the harbor. Playing in the rockweed on the shore; as soon as I started the outboard they were gone. Our trip downriver was dotted with seals, harbor porpoises a few ospreys and a few fish to the boat.
