March is the cruelest month. The snow is gone but everything still looks dead. It's still too cold to do much outside and most of the tackle has been cleaned and organized. It's basically just a waiting game now, although I have plenty to do to the boat before the first of May.
It will be interesting to see how the season progresses. I have had several long-term clients call to cancel their prearranged dates. Fortunately, some of that lost business is being made up by new clients. I still have a few really good dates open in June if anyone is interested.
