Boca Canal Fishing

It's mid-June and unfortunately I've only got on/in/next to the water three times with a rod & reel so far. Ouch!

Darby Creek - Opening day of PA Trout Season (with Mutt J. Mutt III, star of the 6AM land grab). Somewhat fun, but quite chilly. Caught a few trout on Panther Martin spinners, but nothing to brag about. Wished more of my D-Squad brethren could have made it, but between warmth/sleep and family responsibilities, I guess it was not in the cards this year

Norristown Farm Park - nothing, nada, no luck whatsoever - more of a farewell trip than a fishing trip anyway. I used to be able to roll out of bed and go fishing in N'Town, I lived across the street. But now I live in Limerick, and my beloved Stony Creek is now a bit of a hike.

Boca Raton - K.C., Lilly, & I visited Gary & Lorraine towards the end of May. Whenever I go, I do a little fishing in the canal to kill some time. I caught a nice amount of Bream on a trusty Mepps Agila and even K.C. got into the act with her Zebco and some bread crumbs as bait.

Okay, my full intention was to document my fishing excursions starting in '07...but with my recent house move, almost one-and-a-half year old daughter Lilly, and work, I've really haven't had any time out this year!

What's a guy to do? Oh, well...I'll get out there I guess at some point, but right now, I'll have to settle for what's on my plate to the left. "Catch of the Day" from my vacation in Cozumel. A big fried fish from a restaurant in the Xcaret Ecological Park. Comes Mexican-Style, complete with head & tail attached. Mmmmm...Tasty.
