Where did the OFM find elevation maps for the USA? It was at this web site http://www.maps.com/maps.aspx?nav=RM&cid=680,692,693,1047 . Yes you have to work at it a little but the information is there waiting for your efforts.
Bright and early this morning they were hard at it. It being the yard work. It being a great reason to live in an RV. This was taken through the screen and window glass in the kitchen. The OFM really likes having yard work a thing of the past in his life.
Different little chores were done and finally later in the afternoon the Teams headed on down to the water for some fishing. The new header is one of the places we fished.
We have some moderately high boots that are getting a try out to see if they will be sufficient for our needs. The hip waders we have go all the way to our crotch. However by the time the water gets a bit over the OFM’s knees his balance is too iffy to be safe using them. We were hoping these new boots would work out well. Here is the OFM ready to do battle with large fish.
Since deeper water is out of the question due to his balance, these will let us get out past the long shallow sections of area along the shoreline. As you can see in the pictures there is a lot of shallow water in some areas.
Yep the OFM did find a soft spot and get some water over the top of the new boots. However the main purpose is not to stay dry but to keep the hydroids and jelly fish from damaging the OFM legs.
Here is the area where the Team caught six ladyfish. They were all about 15 inches long and as usual for the species very athletic. Lots of jumping, tail walking and racing around is their style. They hit a large silver spoon with a short wire leader. We have not figured out how to take a picture while handling a fish in wading depth water. Another set of hands would be very good.
It was nice to see the large schools of mullet roaming around the area. With lots of food fish for the table fish to eat, we should have a great catching season this year.
Not having yard work to do is a great way of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
