Pulling Weeds..............Going Fishing

Woke up this morning and it wasn't raining. I didn't know what to do with myself.

I could go out in the back yard and pull weeds. OR, I could run out to the lake and soak some Power Eggs. What a concept!!!!!

So I got out the:

You know what this is.

The side with fishing was definitely the one in my favor. So when the wife left for work, I left for the lake.

I got there and the lake was FULL. I haven't seen it this full ever. Even back when, we refer to it as the "Yuki incident" it wasn't this full. Take a look.

There was one other gentleman from Elk Grove fishing on the point. He got one bite on chartreuse Power Bait just before I got there, but missed it.

I put out one rod with white Power Eggs and one with rainbow Power Bait and took enough time to finish my coffee. Once done I reeled in the Power Bait rod and started throwing a silver Kastmaster. I'm not sure if it was the first or the second cast, but I got a hit, a jump, and then it was gone.

Unfortunately that was it. Since my purpose in being out there was to just get out of the house (and not pulling weeds), I packed up at Noon and called it a day.

I know that's not very exciting, but it is what it is.

Friday, Yuki and I are taking another shot at the lake. Maybe the water will be clearer and the fishing will improve.

Stay tuned. 


  1. Easier on the back to just go fishing, Mark........ That weed pullin' is no good for Ol' Geezers..... Keep us posted on the fishin' and not the weed pullin'.....

  2. Certainly hope that everything settles down out there. You've got rain we've got wildfires.

  3. Mark
    Are the recent floods putting you'll house in the flood zone? Hope all the rain will ease up soon for you'll

  4. It's always a good thing to fish when there is weed pulling. Unless, your wife sees you leave the driveway. =) Well, I'm sure it will still get done!

  5. Mark, I'm in your corner or let the weeds grow.
    There is some very pretty green grass growing there.
