LOL, I like my baby bunting Tom!... Seriously, I'd like to say how tough I am but that's not the case at all. There are so many good warm clothes out there these days that there is no need to be cold while fishing anymore. It may have been 15 degrees that morning with a NW wind to 25 MPH and I'm not feeling a bit of it. We have found that we can fish down to at least 0 degrees or so. Dress right and you can focus on fishing and not just trying to stay warm.
I just wish someone could find a fool-proof way to keep rod guides open. When I built my "winter rod" for the lake I didn't go any smaller than a size 10 guide and an 8 tip. It takes longer to freeze shut... but it still freezes shut. I've tried all the home remedies and they either wear off quickly, or then end up on the line and cause a bigger mess.
As far as the city in the back ground, yes its a very unique setting. Fortunately, the fish have no idea that they are down town. I know someone that fishes Chicago too and I see shots of big fish with the Shedd Aquarium or the Adler Planetarium in the background. Pretty cool!
