Had decent window of opportunity,loaded up Chapman pirogue(newest in de fleet)last night and Wifey did me huge favor and picked up 16 lb bag of ice last night and had great intentions,took few fine pics,saw two Army choppers and a ton of gators way out in Lake and caught NADA,other than baby crab dat could not resist temptation of Blades fine lil lure dat bass in CCAguns' private lake destroyed!!Math Geek might say today was a wasted trip but after checking my exact route,how nice of a workout is a 9 mile paddle(check it out via Google Maps)!!Launched fairly early,saw incredible sunrise and got nice pic of osprey(bet he wished he had stayed in bed today!!)Tagged along 4 baitcasters and started off with fine bone-colored Top Dog and saw more bait activity today then I have seen in very long time,just was not nervous bait activity,NEVER a good thing and the water was very stained,save for a small stretch near the shorelines a good bit N of Goose Point.Did see a few fishers,saw not a thing getting caught and read a report on another web site from a diehard as well and he likewise caught NADA.Like I said,some folks would rate today a total waste but I got an incredible work-out,saw a fine pair of trophy mottled ducks and plenty of gators,plus saw an otter right when I was launching de Chapman.Getting de SouthFork almost ready for her engine paint job,got collar painted and have rest of her primed,sanded,gonna shoot OMC Moeller white enamel on rest of engine and might wrap up paint job tomorrow!!!Worn-out from serious paddle and did see bunch of folks crabbing alongside Lake Rd.Lake should be giving up nice fish,think major issue was dingy water and saw not one red,plenty gar and gators!!!

Mande : After reading your report , I say that you had a great adventure , yesterday after getting up to New Roads and forgetting to pack tackle box in truck was a mistake, gonna get me a bottle of dat focus factor, still had a great day spending time with my cousin and family, watching dem copper nose bluegills and bass plying the edges of his ponds , definitely gonna make a check list before heading back up there for round two , getting a bit older ain’t gonna slow me down from what I luv to do and That’s Fishing which I can’t get enough of ! 🧙‍♂️🎣

Wiz,Guess I could ALWAYS enlist ya support to attach,or at least TRY to attach neat pics I sent ya.Tried,once again,to attach four pics and wish the site WOULD work a tad better,at least as far as attaching pics via laptop.Wifey and I got through some more dat dreaded Medicare Certification Training,gonna rest de ole brain and hit Lowe's for some pool supplies(not sure how I accomplished it but pool water BETTER than it has ever been-great way to rapidly cool off after working in yard,etc)!!Gotta get back with CCAguns to see bout Hopedale trip this Tues!!!Think I gonna hit T-Funky tomorrow via Chapman!!
