Ice Knife Wind

Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas

The OFM made the Teams get out and experience the wonderful weather today. There is nothing so invigorating as a 37 degree F wet wind blowing 20+ miles per hour to brighten your day. Yes Sir the Teams were really enthusiastic in this endeavor.

When we pulled into the Rockport Beach Park the flags were waving at us with lots of excitement. We think it was because the OFM was the only fool to come to the park today.

Sierra drove the Teams around the whole park looking for anything not frozen in place. Even the waves in Little Bay did not seem enthusiastic in providing interesting movement. But on the way out we noticed that some of the palm trees were dancing in the ice knife wind. We do not know the name of the dance but it did use some low to the ground moves.

The (knucklehead) OFM even stopped for a couple of casts to see if any fish were dumb enough to not head south ahead of the cold front. Nope, none of the fish were dumb enough to stick around for this misery. But the OFM was.

By now even the OFM was ready to give up and get back into the warm of the Castle for some effort at trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. The coldest I remember being was a winter's day in Florida years ago when it got into the 30's with a stiff wind. Being near the water can be bone chilling. Stay warm.

  2. That sounds like a good day for staying warm indoors all day long. You are to be commended for even trying to catch a fish!

    1. maybe committed would be a better choice of words

  3. zero degrees with twenty knots is pretty invigorating also.
    Have more fun

  4. Stick around, by the end of next week it will be 80 degrees here and you are a lot further south than I am here in Cut & Shoot, Texas.
