A Little Warmth For You

We are expecting rain most, if not all, of next week. I wanted to clean the wood stove flue. It's been 4 weeks since I last did it and that makes me a week late doing it. So what does a good home owner do while he's waiting for the wood stove to cool enough for cleaning? He goes fishing, of course. I figured if I killed about 4 hours it should be cool enough to clean.

With the temperature expected to be in the low 70's I headed out to North Shore of Lake Camanche for a little warmth and Power Bait soaking.  

I thought you might enjoy sharing some warming pictures of the lake just in case you're buried up to your wazoo in snow.

 Oh yeh, I caught this bug eyed Rainbow while I was there. It came in at 2lbs. 2ozs.

Bug eyed Rainbow
A guy fishing next to me asked if I wanted the one he caught because one was no good for his smoker. I accepted and dropped both off at Bob's (just in case I need my driveway plowed next week).

Hope you warmed up a tad. Yes, the flue is clean. One other thing, since I stopped using the white rod holders I've not been skunked. Superstitious????

  1. Way to break through with some very nice weather. It was very nice here today also, but, we didn't make (72). Very nice, Rainbow. Was it a Power Bait fish? Your superstitions might be right. You better go ahead and send those "bad luck" while rod holders up my way!

    1. Send me your address, Mel. I'd be glad to get rid of them.

  2. Love that bow. Looks like a chrome bright steelhead in from the sea.

    1. I'm not sure I'll get any fishing in next week. Supposed to rain from tomorrow through at least Friday.
