I'm a hold out

I waited till the last moment to take the canoe off the van. I fished on Saturday at on e of my favorite lakes. it was slower than I thought it would be. I caught six fish the largest 22 inches. I started using a Thompson Buoyant. I was doing great with that, caught a fish every time I cruised by a point of land I hook the 22 inch and it put up a great fight pulled lots of line off the real and jumped several times. It was a nice fat fish. The other ones weren't as large so I let them go. Dan who went with me caught a fat 25 inch. We both thought it looked a lot bigger. I guess because it was so fat. it was a bit cool out I think the wind chill was only in mid thirty's. I was hopping the weather would hold out for another week. We got a few inches of snow Sunday but I was surprised when I got up and it was only 18 outside and after work it was not above freezing. non the less after work I took the canoe off the van looks like summer is over. we are so post to get more snow tonight.

That was a fast fall

I went fishing yesterday and It was good. I putted around a lake for a few hours and caught six nice rainbow trout. I kept three of them, the biggest, (about twenty inches) the fattest and the ugliest (looked like it had a broken back). The ugly fish was strange looking wished I had a photo of it but Barbra took my camera back east with her. Looks like Fall is over. I cant believe it, Hear it is October fifth and snow is poring from the sky. I was hopping to go fishing one last time next weekend; at the moment it's not looking like that will happen. O-well time to dig out the auger and sharpen the blades. wont be long before I can hit the ice for some hard water fishing. The earliest I've fished was the 16 of October. Don't know if that will happen this year but it should be an early start. In th mean time I can grease up the shot gun and go bunny popping wile I wait for the ice to become safe to walk on.
