Frank S. showed us this trick with the binder backs,  and our Nilo gave me the rack to store them on.

Skip and Mary-Kay stopped by to fish with me, and before the wind picked up too bad, I landed one LMB, one BG, and a catfish.  All on a black Hare-E, size 10.

Picktures later.

I made it to work safely by leaving Katy at 0530, only to show up to a building that is empty.

Now the roads around the buidling are just now opening up, so I still can't quite get myself to leave.

I have my RFC tying stuff in th truck, assuming we are still having a meeting tonight?

Fishing was poor with topwaters, so I switched to a "Ligon" size 6 and this is what happened.

I can't justify buying it, but it is a great little watercraft.

It actually rained out Junction way.

May 21, 2015 - The park is closed due to flooding . . .Water is over the low water crossing at the park entrance.

3 weeks away for our trip, and the water may be a little higher that last year!

I realized this was a Tuesday after I signed up.  I won't be able to make it.

My error.

It is the 11th, not the 7th.

I believe that it is a good idea to have as much information as possible on hand, particularly when you are in unfamiliar waters.

A map recon can only do so much.

I use my GPS maps on my PC, and find waypoints that I send to my GPS, before I get to the new waters I plan to explore.

One of the maps I use has all of the bottom contours, but my GPS software does not.  It would save time if it did.
