So I’m going stir crazy these days and tomorrow morning I’m headed out with Forrest in tow (our black lab) and head out to a buddy of mine place. I’m going to catch Bluegill and bass while they hit and then later in the day take a nap in the shade. Fish fry for dinner and a few cold beverages. This may not sound like a lot but a few months ago I didn’t know if I was going to live through my COVID episode. I haven’t done anything since last February so I’m as happy as a cat with two peckers. Take pleasure in the simple things when you can, tomorrow might make them impossible things.
Cheers

Don't seem to exist in the west, but I spent hours and hours on great ponds as a kid in Va.

Sounds therapeutic, enjoy!


Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

No photos but I did enjoy some success. Bluegills and bass both were cooperative. I was hampered a bit though by Forrest our black lab. He wanted to retrieve every fish I threw back into the water. He’s a knucklehead but lovable as hell.

My Lab wanted to lunge and snap at every drop of water that flew off the kayak paddles. He weighed nearly 80 pounds of lovable knucklehead and thought swimming along with me while I tried to right the kayak was great fun.... he also wanted to retrieve bass plugs.

Forrest is 85lbs and fairly solid. I took him on his first canoe trip last fall and he did pretty good. There was one incident however that almost got me tipped when he bolted out of the canoe to join some folks having fun on shore.
Sure felt good doing something outdoors this weekend and I can’t wait for fall.
