When the sun finally decided to shine it did a wonderful job of it. Here is the usual picture in the Beach Park. It was very nice and warm today.
The OFM decided to try his luck with some bottom fishing. So the rod was rigged and we headed out on the wooden pier. He dropped the bait and line in the water and it acted odd. As he tried to straighten out the mess he finally realized a fish was on the line. The water is only three feet deep at the spot and the fish grabbed the bait nearly instantly after it hit the water.
The fight was not long or hard because it was a nine inch redfish. In the picture those are 2x6 boards it is laying on. The red was quickly unhooked and chunked back in to grow up.
The OFM kept on fishing for about an hour. The only thing happening was this Pelly Can watching for a hand out.
You were told yesterday that the plans could change and it did not take long to need to change plans a bit. The rolling date is now January 26, 2020. A couple of minor items popped up to handle but nothing devastating like the refrigerator replacement was the last time we tried to get rolling.
Now for the bad news. The mosquito epidemic has swamped the Rockport area. It happens now and then and it is NOW time.
Swatting mosquitos is a lot of exercise but not the best way of trying to have tooooo much fun.
