After finally awakening about 0845 this morning, my body was rested for a change. My feet even wanted to go for a walk. That is a big change from the painful feet of the last few days. After breakfast the Walking Team headed out in the nice dry warm shade from all the trees. It was great.
We did see a couple of interesting things. The ugly bug contest was won by this son of a gun that was wandering around on the hood and fender of the Truck. The Truck was quivering and screaming GET THAT THING OFF ME.
It was not a candidate to make a pet of it.On down the road a piece was this web from some industrious spider. The sunshine glinted off it when the angle was just right. It was pretty.
Late in the afternoon the Fishing Team went down to the jetty pier to try our luck. As usual nobody was catching anything. The Ofm Fishing Team went to work and soon had fish coming in.This white bass put up a heck of a fight against the 200 pound OFM.
Then a bit later this monster sun perch hit my lure and nearly dragged me off the pier. It was a nip and tuck battle there for two or three seconds. But the OFM’s superior skill at rod handling prevailed. Another fisherman on the pier kept this fish for his supper. He must have a small appetite.
All told in two hours the OFM Fishing Team put1 crappie
1 sun perch1 large mouth bass
8 white basson the pier. The sun perch was the largest fish. Every lure that was tried caught fish. But the 99 degree air temperature was getting to the OFM so the Team called it a day and went back to the Castle.
A great morning walk and a nice afternoon catching fish while visiting with other folks makes for a great day of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
