The OFM had a big bowl of pig slop for lunch today and declared it a major success. It is in the do this again folder.
Then most of the day we paid attention to the new rain storm flooding and drove around to see how bad it was in the rest of the town. What a mess!
This afternoon the OFM went to the concrete pier at the harbor to fish for a while. He put in about two hours fishing with a silver spoon and a gold spoon. He had better luck with the silver spoon.
Both spoons caught the foot long Ladyfish that were running amok around the pier. They are a very active fish like a small tarpon. How do we know they are ladyfish? By the pretty pink TU-TU they wear.
But the silver spoon suckered the 24 inch redfish into biting. The redfish put up a good battle for several minutes on the light equipment the OFM uses. It was a very pretty fish and the small children that had come over to see what was caught were impressed. After unhooking the fish, it was returned to the water to grow up to be a bull red.
Of course since the OFM was afraid of rain, he did not carry the camera to take pictures. But catching all those fish this afternoon made it a great day of trying to have tooooo much fun anyway.
