Fishing. What's up with fishing this year? Is anyone else having trouble catching fish this year? I have been to Piney Run Park to fish 8 times this year and have caught exactly one blue gill. My son, whom I consider a superb fisherman, hasn't caught much. One small large mouth bass, one yellow perch, one decent blue gill, and several smaller ones.

I know it's been cold this spring. Is the cold weather keeping the fish in the middle of the lake? Do they not like to eat when it's chilly? What's going on?
I will say that the old man that I see there all the time has not had any trouble catching fish. Well, no trouble catching fish relative to me. When I ask him how he's done, he always responds that he caught a couple. Meanwhile, I see him catch crappie after crappie. I know he makes his own bait. I've gone out and bought something that looks like his bait the last two times I've seen him use new bait.
I'm hoping to take my son to Jonas Green Park this Memorial Day weekend for some shore fishing on the Severn. I'm hoping for nice weather, but at this point it looks like it will be getting cooler again. Stupid global cooling.
What's your fishing experience this spring?
