Teams Location: Rockport, Texas
The storms of last night and the tides of today have coordinated some minor flooding in the area. The Exploring Team headed out to find out where we can direct the Fishing Team. One of the places checked out is the kayak launch at the Community Park in Aransas Pass.The water was high but the launch point is serviceable for yak launching. The Truck was parked next to this very nice trailer for kayaks. My path went around the front of the rig and over to the launch point. Everything looked good there so we wandered back to the Truck by a different route. OH MY Look at what is left out on the fender of the nice trailer.
The yakker who left the tackle box on the fender probably did not like what he noticed when he had paddled all the way out to the fishing area. A less obvious spot to sit the tackle box was not found so the box was left right where it was found. Maybe it was still there when the yakker returned from fishing.Late in the evening a trip back out to a chosen area was made to check if the flooding had gone down any. Nope, the water had actually risen a few inches more. Now it was flooding up onto the normally dry land. This white bird was taking advantage of the newly flooded area to enhance its diet.
Naturally since the Fishing Team was there and water with fish in it was there, fishing had to be done. The silver spoon arced into the air many times and came back unmolested every time. A nice picture of the evening was taken.
AHH. A cooling breeze, good scenery and a fishing rod in my hand makes a nice effort toward trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
