Was itching to catch a fish, and despite the nasty weather forecast for friday the morning started off decently, overcast with light winds in Bellingham. So after finishing my morning chores I went out to buy a new discover pass and give terrell lake a visit.
Upon arriving it was clear I wouldnt be taking my boat out. The wind in ferndale was far stronger than at my house, and white caps were forming on the lake's surface. So I headed down to the very nice fishing dock to give casting a chance. With nearly 20mph winds directly in my face, there wasn't much option but to put 1/2 oz weight on with power eggs from the bottom. With the chop on the surface my rod tips were dancing the whole time, but never because of fish. After about an hour the rain picked up and was soaking me sideways, so I threw in the towel. This lake has always been a tough one for me, but it was the weather that was the biggest obstacle today.
