Well. The tournament I was in didn’t go so well. Only four people actually caught fish in a brisk 30MPH wind. I was sitting out there thinking that tournaments really suck. I did, however, foul hook a sting ray so technically I was not skunked and would’ve survived another day on a deserted island. I also ended up winning 5th place overall because I had one good performance in the series. So that was cool. But otherwise sucked.
AHH. THE SUN RISES OVER I-275.
THE CURRENT WAS RIPPING THROUGH HERE ON THE WAY BACK.
A REALLY NICE PICTURE OF THE TROUT MAULER LURE EVERYONE HAD TO USE FOR THE TOURNAMENT
HIPPY SHOT OF SANDPIPERS IN BAY
I GUESS YOU COULD CALL THIS AN UNLUCKY HORSESHOE…
THIS WAS REALLY FUN TO UNHOOK.
MAKO WINS THE OLC!
HERES THE CARBON FIBER PADDLE I WON. I WOULD ESTIMATE ITS VALUE AT AROUND $35,000.
A big thanks to ERICK and Canoe Country Outfitters who put together this tournament. It’s a really good time.
So the rest of the week I’ve been on kind of a trash fish tear. I’ve been in them. I think the lizardfish national convention may be happening in my neighborhood. I’ve caught em’ all. That stingray set into motion a non stop assault of inedible and downright goofy looking fish. I took pictures of them, of course. I should buy an aquarium for some of the crap I’ve been catching!
THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS ABOUT FISHING – THE SCENERY
THIS PELICAN LOOKS PISSED.
I CANNOT BELIEVE HOW MANY LIZARDFISH I’VE CAUGHT LATELY…
A FISH THIS STUPID HAD BETTER BE POISONOUS…
JACKS ON TOPWATERS ARE FUN. I WAS CATCHING THEM ON AN OYSTER BED IN ABOUT 8 INCHES OF WATER.
ALL THE USUAL SUSPECTS…
THE TROUT WERE AROUND TOO.
DON’T LEAVE GULPS ON THE HOOK OR THEY PETRIFY INTO LEATHER. I DON”T KNOW HOW TO GET THEM OFF. MAYBE SOAK EM. GROSS…
That’s the report! Nothing remarkable but there’s some fish. How often do you see a report with a sting ray, ladyfish, jack, pufferfish and lizardfish? Why, with a catfish that’s a double slam!
