In the words of Ice Cube, "Today was a good day."
Rolled out of bed this morning at around quarter till six. Headed out to go fishing for the first time in about 3 weeks. Felt great to be out again, even though it was going to be yet another day of 90+ degree weather. Once at the creek, the intermittent shade from the trees provided some relief and the water temps were in the low 60s. Despite the heat I expected the action to be good. And it was...
Most of the brownies brought to hand were in the 6-8 inch size; however this guy was the heavyweight champ of the day.
According to the handy Measure Net, that brownie came in around 12 inches. He slammed a size 18 Copper John. If you're interested in visiting him yourself, he lives here:
Once it started getting really hot around noon, I packed it in and headed home. K.C. & Lilly had gone to the swim club in the morning, and they had gotten home just around the same time I did. After a quick lunch, I took Lilly (to give K.C. some peace & quiet) over to the Stony Creek Anglers Nursery Open House.
Let's just say Lilly likes feeding the fish.
We spent almost two hours there. I couldn't get her to leave! Looked like there was a good turnout overall, which is a good thing for the club. I finally got Lilly away from the fish food and back to the car with one magic word..."playground."
Lilly liked it there too.
By that time it was almost 5PM and time to head home for dinner. Like I said in the title of this post, today was a nice, full Sunday. One of those days you wouldn't trade for the world.
