Well, I haven’t been blogging, that’s for darn sure. And I’m so sorry but I’ve been leaving the house so early, there’s no time in the morning. And by the time I get finished with all my family responsibilities at night, I’m too tired to do much besides pull the covers back and fall into the sack.
I recently had a week chock- full of tours with really cool kids from universities in New York. I have a couple pics of them here . . .
And some more . . .
And then these . . .
This week, I will be doing a little more of what I did today . . .
Above is the son part of this dynamic duo, Pete, who now lives in New Orleans and is the Volunteer Coordinator for Episcopal Community Services. He spoke at the conference in New York back in February at Genesee Community College, too. They have great opportunities for young people to take time off from college, work, whatever to volunteer their time and energy to help folks in New Orleans recover.
This morning started off foggy, overcast, and the wind was howling. The day did not look promising. We ventured out and fished on anyway. And we’re so glad we did. They boated a few trout at our first stop, and as the wind died down a bit, we headed to the lake.
We found some beautiful light emerald water and cast out our Berkley Power Baits. It was noon and those trout were hungry for lunch. Sure wish we could count the ones that did not quite make the boat. It didn’t take them long to get the hang of really setting that hook in those yellow mouths, and lunch hour ended with a limit of trout in the boat. The bite was fast and furious and then it was over as quick as it began.
They were great fun to fish with, and I hope they come back again. I have another charter tomorrow with a kayak fisherman from North Carolina, so this should be fun. They catch some of the same species up there as we do down here. So, I’ll be curious to see if he finds any difference in the water, the methods, or the fish.
It’s good to be back here talking to all of you again. I have another little surprise post for you coming soon. Well, at least when I can squeeze it in before bedtime. 5:30 AM comes mighty early, so my eyes don’t work much past 8:00 PM. And that’s the time it is right now, ladies and gents.
So, good night, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite!
Let me hear from y’all!
