    Not real interested in honing my fish-cleaning capabilities yesterday, but did have a laid back, late start agenda in mind. Did have some criteria in place however, to include some live bait presentation . Still using the skinny ultralight tackle to accentuate the intermittent thrill challenges. My M. O. included- late start(11), close to home(20 minutes), river setting, low boat traffic, peace & quiet, lots of action, increase area intel, possible species PB on skinny tackle. Didn't take long for the curtain to rise to welcome in the day's guests. My game plan was more or less to locate my quarry with fan-casting artificials(hand-ties, tiny black beetle- spins, also had success w/mini plastic crayfish(green/chartreuse) added to beetle-spin) etc.) than drop a pre-rigged rod w/tiny float, fished about 16" above a half red worm hooked to a small 1/32 jig head. Worked like a scripted movie! Brought back big time, youthful memories of seeing "bobber down"! Even had several incidents of bobber smacks! Species enjoyed were decent bass(lbr's), various bream species(c/n >9"s, red bellies, stumpknockers>7", 1 drag-testing mudfish(3 lb), shellcrackers>12.5" !! Banner fish of day was no doubt, the humungous pb SC that I was certain was a mudfish or l/m 'til I caught 1st glimpse= OMG!! Fortunate enough to have long-handled net @the ready b4 photo shoot/ice slurry bath. Only brought enough home(10) to dirty up half a newspaper. Hope your Cinco de Mayo holds nearly as many childhood "thrills" as my 504 yielded yesterday! Enjoy the pics, stay safe friends- and remember..."6 feet apart supersedes 6 feet under!!" Hopefully, by doing so, you'll experience your life's MILEMARKERS-


    Also, any horticultural enthusiasts(Flycaster etc,) can yield info. on streamside plant in pics from yesterday? Maybe edible(ripened), medicinal =Thanks-
