Hanging around the house, waiting until it's time to go see the kids and grandkids. It will be tough to top last Christmas when we found out that this little guy was coming.



Unlike the rest of this year, I've been fishing a heck of a lot lately, but haven't recorded any stellar catches, so far. I attached the pics of the 12 and 18 I caught this week.

I also made some observations.

When the weather man says winds 5 to 10, that means they have no idea what the wind speed is likely to be.

The best hand warmer is catching a fish.

Time is elastic.

Sometimes you just can't get too shallow.

When the weather man misses the wind forecast by 15 mph, he doesn't knuckle down and really try to get it right again the next day. Just calls it 5 to 10 again.

Similar to the defective rods (bent) sometimes a planer goes bad and you can't get it to straighten out because it's fixing to go down!!

My shallow running keel-less boat is awesome for running shallow rivers, but isn't a great pleasure to pound through whitecaps and rollers (yes back to the wind again).

Glad to have spent some of this year fishing with my Seein' Stripes buddies, and that there is another week to fish before the end of the year.
