Frank's photo/ Chuck's pickerel

Son frank took these shots on one of his outtings.  He thought of me.
Then today neighbor  Chuck's grandsons came over with a 22 inch pickerel.  Nice.  We'll bake it up today.

Former student with fish.


Rough time of it for me

I had a rough time in the boat today.
Quite a bit of pain in whatever is bothering me.  I cast a pole and it all went into a spasm.  I was unhappy.
Peter, Casey and Eliz went.  That should have made me happy.  We all fished a bit and in the end we had enough bluegills for a taste at supper.  Good biting over by the island, but I had forgotten the anchor. 
The day was fine.  Very few boats.

I was happy to have gotten the boat cleaned up and bailed, but I'm unsure what all this means for the summer for me. 

Once out back in my chair with Aleve and bourbon I felt better.  Cleaning the fish was easy enough.  The stairs hurt but the scaling did not. 

I made Peter carry the motor and the battery. 
Casey seemed to have a good time playing with the fish.  He reeled on in that Boppie caught.

I like the stability of the boat so I could stand when the pain got intense and that helped.

Pulled the boat up the bank

I used a rope from what I bought in Florida and some hooks.  Things kept snapping, but eventually I got it up enough to drain the water and then hose down the inside.  Nice job done.
