November 22, 2014 - Mountain Run Lake

Went fishing out at Mountain Run Lake.  Put in at about 3:30, it was fairly mild, with a persistent slight breeze.  The sun was shining.

The past week has had several nights down in the teens and twenties, and reports were that there had been ice on the water.  No ice was on the water today.  Surface water temperature was 42 F.  Fished with a black crankbait for a few minutes with no success and then switched to a small yellow curly tail.  Caught this thirteen inch largemouth: 

As the sun sank beneath the horizon, the breeze that I had first characterized as slight turned into a stinging arctic blast, and my hands being wet, I began to get uncomfortable.  I took out with daylight left at about 4:45.
It's getting to be winter, evidently.  I should've taken my coat with me when I went out, but when I first got there, the thermal underwear seemed to be up to the task.
