Teams Location: Rockport, Texas
Some things that have been on order were back ordered and will not be in by the end of the month. That means a choice had to be made and the choice was to add another month to this stay in Rockport. That will take the Teams through the nice spring weather into the hot summer weather. With a little luck we still have two or three weeks more of decent weather. However the MOSQUITOES have hatched from the rain of last week and they are pissed and hungry.The adventures have been small but nice. Several nagging chores were completed and are out of the way now. One cute item noticed while out and about was this fisherman’s car at the Whataburger. That is a pretty neat strap on rod rack.
After the chores were finished it was time to fish a bit. It turned out to be a decent catching day for a change. The speckled trout in this picture are all about 17” and very fat bodied. There are three in the cheat but immediately after the picture was taken another was added to the chest.
My fishing rod is having a failure situation so it was taken back to the Castle. Repairs should be accomplished tomorrow morning. The repair, whatever it turns out to be, will be covered in the blog tomorrow night. In the meantime, it was supper time then a few minutes rest and thinking. The evening was cooling down nicely and the wind was calming so the Truck took us back to the pier in case there was somebody there to visit.
Sure enough “Pop” was there. He is always a nice fellow to visit. We visited while he fished. One time we were so deep into a subject than when a fish hit his lure it scared him so much he jumped three feet in the air which caused me to jump a half mile. We both burst out laughing at that. As the evening wore on this is the sunset we were rewarded with.
Of course that was not enough. Pop had to catch another nice fat trout. It was dark enough that the flash had to be used to get the picture. It was another 17” like the ones earlier.
In a couple of months he will be headed back to the Dallas area to harvest a mess of crappie. That sounds pretty good to me.
As you can see it was not high adventure at all but it was fun adventures while trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
