Oh Yes We Did!

The weather prediction called for thunder storms. After seeing what has happened in Tennessee, I knew there was no whining about the weather here.

Another boat! We're weren't the only kooks!

Just in case the storms did come, we decided to go out this morning ... this morning being 10:00 AM, so for morning fishing, we were late. The skies were gray and the wind was up, but the temperature was comfortable.

Actually we did go out for a quick first fishing trip this past Friday. I caught my first Muskie. He put up a good fight, but I have to admit it was a baby. It was about 30" and weighed about 6 pounds. I took a picture with my phone camera, but it didn't save.

Today, my new pole, "The Green Goddess" ... yes I name my poles, remember "PINK"? (may she rest in peace) caught a Rock Bass, Pumpkin Seed (looked like an orange Blue Gill to me), and a White Bass. Nothing we'd keep, but fun to reel in. Don caught three Rock Bass.

"The Green Goddess"

We only stayed out a couple hours because the storms were heading our way.

So the beginning of our summer has started!

I can always count on your blog to have some sort of nautical theme. While you don't impress me as a fly fisherman......have you evern seen 'A River Runs Through It' is about fishing....and it has Brad Pitt!!!

Nancy said...

Yes Bruce, I have seen that great movie. (and not because Brad is in it)

My sister's b'friend is a fly fisherman, more so a writer of articles for sports magazines about fly fishing ... so he does lots of "research", ;)

He also makes his own flies ... so beautiful, I'd rather use them as earrings!

Three cheers to summer, and I admire your courage when you get out there and weather the rough weather and water. A good metaphor for life and the adventures that await!
