Well, days are getting shorter and the warmwater sorties after work are becoming fewer. Puck and I went out in the boat this evening for some after work fishing and had some serious fun.
We were just one species short of the grand slam. We caught largemouth, bluegill, and black crappie. The fishing was dedidedly better once the sun really started to drop (no surprise there), and the topwater action was quite steady for a while there. I now know when Puck is getting hits....everytime he swears, that's him missing a fish. And all this time I thought he was swearing at me.....
I joined in the swearing after a while. I think it's contagious.
It was a good time with good company. And good food afterwards.
I really couldn't ask for too much more.
