We need to give The OFM a day off to rest. This is the second day in a row he pooped out and had to have a short nap. The photos are piling up in the computer waiting for their turn at being edited. Today we added several more.
Anyway it was a fish catching day as well as a roaming around day. The camera was a busy little devil all day nearly.
Enough of that, let’s get on with today. We did some shopping and sightseeing. There has been a lot of changes since we left here late last January and we are still finding new changes. However the OFM did take some time for fishing right after lunch. Here is one of the two identical 18 inch speckled trout he caught.
Then on another excursion down by the Fulton bridge we got to see this nice sized catch by a very nice fellow. This is a nice sized black drum and definitely will be worth eating when they take it off the grill tonight. We think there might be a bit of a party at his place.
Then late afternoon The OFM went down by the wooden pier. He chunked the lure out to get a kink out of the line and while reeling the lure in this small 14 inch red fish rushed out of a weed bed to hit the lure.
We were surprised to have several more red fish come out of the weed beds and chase the lure on later casts also. Several other folks were seen landing fish at many places around the waterfront today. We guess the fish must have been feeling frisky after the cool front came through.
The OFM got in a good bit of walking today but it was in several smaller chunks. It is in the plans for another trip to the Community Park track and walk that track the opposite direction to get pictures to add to the piles of pictures on the computer already.
One thing for sure, there is a lot of trying to have tooooo much fun still out there around town.
