Had a nightmare of an exploration trip last weekend which included dehydration, a twisted ankle (alone, with miles of river walk left), and falling into the river twice. No fish, but the exploration will pay off someday since both falls were into water "3 to 6 feet deep, moving at a walking pace, and whose surface was broken up by boulders" and nobody for miles :-D Anyway, I decided to take things a little easier and work my local municipal lake. Final tally: 6 trout, 3 bass, a bunch of Pumpkinseed (talk about beautiful!), and a bunch of perch. If I had caught a crappie it would have been a grand slam! I was also the only float tube on the lake, since as everyone knows, fishing is only good on this type of lake in the spring and fall ;-) The batteries are now fully charged!!!! Anadromids beware!
