When one goes to a favorite fishing area, is it a good sign to have Turkey Vultures waiting along the shore? They were just enjoying the sunshine to warm up for a day of flight.There were nine here, but most flew away upon seeing me approach.
Hard to shoot a selfie with a large fish in one's hand. You should have been there doing it for me.I always have an extra pole with me.
Clouds rolling down the river valley into the lake didn't produce rain.
With all the fighting fish all morning, the toughest was this 5 1/2 foot stick. It was sodden with water, and stopped at one point acting like a big catfish or turtle holding down on the bottom. Once I got it in I noticed it had caught the line of three different fishermen, plus a lure.What a find, and great story to tell at camp, the big one that didn't get away.
