Now the guy down the street has the right idea. He had a pile of wood show up in his front yard. A BIG pile. Said something about Gopher Wood and building a boat although I don't know where you would get that type of wood and why that type specifically for a boat. He must have some inside information. Anyway it looks like he's collecting animals too. He's got more in his menagerie than Yuki does and Yuki has a lot. We'll see what happens.
On the spur of the moment, I ran out to Lake Camanche North Shore just to give my wife some time at home without yours truly underfoot. Got to the lake just before 9:00 and put out two rods, one with rainbow Power Bait and the other with orange Power Eggs.
Took a couple picture while I was sitting. Looks like the lake has dropped about 10 feet. You can almost drive out to the island.
|More land showing in anticipation of the next storm.|
|Rocks and such.|
|That's the island way out there.|
Went back to the chair (it's where the tacklebox is) and tied on another snap swivel and put on a silver Kastmaster. Seems I'm out of pink ones. Four or five casts later on my little Okuma, and it was "fish on". When you're fishing with 2# line, there is no horsing a fish in. A two pound Rainbow gives a really nice fight on a light rod. A quick picture, a little CPR (there was no mouth to mouth done on this fish) and he was off for another day.
|2 pounds or so.|
|Right in the middle.|
That was it, walked the rest of the way around the peninsula, but no more were to be had. Not bad for a sneak out fishing trip.
With all the rain coming I don't know when I'll get out again, so stay tuned.
