• Now I Ask You

    How is it that a man is supposed to stay at home when this awaits him?

    A balmy 41* when I was almost at the ramp had me in my bibs and layers and gloves. As expected things started slow and I didnít load up like Speck Detector did but it was a beautiful, quiet morning. Picked up these two just as the fog began to burn off and I never felt this first crappie, the line just got heavy.

    It wasnít too far from the first fish to this fourth one, the first was a six inch Gill that I didnít get a pic of. This fourth one was the pretty one of the day, I just love their colors.

    The girls stopped by to say hello and stayed for about 10 minutes or so until I got close and the whip sound of the rod made them move off. But they didnít go fast or far, maybe 75í and they went back to feeding.

    Things got a little slow so I fired up the outboard and moved a bit and found some more, even some green ones.

    All total was about 15 fish of mixed variety, maybe a couple more. 6 crappie, 3 LMB and six or seven gills and redbreast mixed. Had on a real good sumthin that gave me what for and said goodbye before I got to see him. A solid 20 seconds of excitement and then he was gone. Everything was caught on my 2lb rigs again today so the fun was a couple of notches higher. Also saw the snail hawk for the first time in months today. Got serenaded by owls long into the morning and the squirrels always make me laugh when a branch breaks out from under them and they start barking up a storm like someone did something to them on purpose. In just after 7 and pulled about 11 and all the players got a pass for another day. Thanks for coming along, hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Hope to see you soon, til thenÖÖ.Skeet.

      Fantastic pictures, you immortalized a beautiful day. I think idling out with "Smoke on the Water" is absolutely the beginning of the day we all crave!
