Great day on the water which almost got off to a disastrous start when I flipped the 'yak trying to rescue my rod

Mark had the hot rod this year - all I could manage was a follow from something not very large

Lots of interesting things going on out there though:

Ospreys circling overhead and the biggest snapping turtle I've ever seen came crashing though the undergrowth at one point - can't wait to see the pics.

Also, a large fish (pushing 10 lbs) which I couldn't identify got airborne about 30 feet from the kayak. It didn't look like a bass - plain olive coloring, dark back, large scales and orange tinged fins. Looked like an elongated Carp but I've never seen one jump like that before before.

Thanks Mark for organizing and John for the Albino Peacock tail feather
