Today Tom and I went fishing on Stockton Lake.
It was a return match picking up from yesterday on Table Rock Lake. The weather was great and the lake as flat as a millpond. It was surprising how far behind Table Rock Lake spring is at Stockton. The weather might have been glorious, the fishing though was a repeat of last Friday on Fellow’s lake. Not a sausage. The fish at Stockton must have turned vegetarian over the winter. Well, that’s my excuse. Tom did manage catch one fish – just to bring our two day total to a draw of five fish each. The going was so poor we gave up early and came home.
This afternoon Ginger and I cleared up all the bags of leaves with a couple of runs to the recycling center. We’re taking the Kayaks out tomorrow – Fellows Lake again, our last visit before our registration expires, so I did a bit of fishing tackle maintenance, which is where today’s picture comes in. I thought I’d taken enough pictures of lakes and such for a while, so will have to do.
On a more somber note, I checked my e-mail for the first time in a few days tonight and discovered that one of my EFM classmates, John, was taken into hospital on Sunday, with a possible diagnosis of cancer. I like John a lot, he’s a very thoughtful and kind person. Here’s hoping for the best for him and his family.Copyright © 2011 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.
