Greg's Guide Lines: Full fledged fall     Take a drive in the country as soon as you can to take full advantage of the beautiful fall colors. I noticed this on my latest trip up north to fish Crooked Lake crappies and as slow as the fishing was I would have been better off driving around taking photos. All that was missing was a little sunshine. I can’t imagine how brilliant the colors would have been if it wasn’t overcast. It’s just stunning out there.

If it was going to get down to 26 degrees back home, what was is going to be like on Saturday morning in Ontario? Trying to remain positive, I thought “at least the ducks would be flying.”
