4-26-05 - Heavy clouds shroud the sun over Lake Como. A striking view even though the fishing sucked!
A spot of sun appears on the north shore of the lake. It almost looks as though someone's trying to tell me, "Hey, you need to be fishing OVER HERE".

After confirming that indeed the panfish season was open, I walked out my front door being homebound while my Camaro was once again in the shop. I NEEDED to fish...it didn't matter that Como would be my one and only option.

Well, the cold north wind really made casting from my south shore location painful. MANY casts were flubbed, simply dying in the wind as they tried to extend outwards. I guess that's what you get for using a 4wt!

Despite picking some of the most visible patterns and working the prominent weed patches and rocks, NOTHING happened. I seriously put in at least an hour before calling it a day on the water....and all I have to show for it are some striking pictures overlooking Lake Como.
