What A Day!
We had a very exciting day of fishing on Douglas Lake on Monday of this week. Doug, Ralph and I were on the lake to fish for those crappie or “croppie”.
We had not been fishing very long until we had caught several small fish that we had to throw back. There’s a size limit for crappie and each fish has to be at least 10 inches in length. So we had this idea to use my fish counter to count the total number of crappie we caught during the day. We thought that would be interesting.
We were trolling in my pontoon boat at 0.8-1.0 MPH with 16 rods (5 on each side and 6 out the back). Our baits were flies tipped with minnows and 2” plastic baits. (We support my friend Monk Wilson at MonksCrappie.com for all your crappie fishing needs)
We also had accumulated a decent stringer of keepers. As we went through the live well we had 27 keeper crappie. We also caught 6 striped bass, a couple of blue gill and several drum. A good day!
Be thankful for the privilege of life.
Don’t fret the small stuff.
If it will not matter in 100 years from now,
don’t fret over it today.
Where man sees but withered leaves,
God sees sweet flowers growing.
Joke of the Day
Peter called his doctor’s office for an appointment. “I’m sorry,” said the receptionist, “we can’t fit you in for at least two weeks.”
“But I could be dead by then!”
“No problem. If your wife lets us know, we’ll cancel the appointment.”
