It ended up being me, Hirschhunter and my buddy Kevin.
I was planning on the river running 5000 cfs like it had for the whole week before, but Thrus. it started back to the up and down yo-yo.
With bluebird skys and falling water the fishing was tough to say the least, but everbody caught some fish and Kevin caught some nice ones.
Hirschhunter got a chance to try out his new Old Town Pack canoe.
12' at 33#. It is amazing how light that thing is. Very cool boat.
Pretty early in the trip Kevin started catching some white bass, I saw his pole bent over pretty good and went over to see what he had.
That was a nice fish, around 18". Caught it on a good sized jig.
The fish might not have been biting but it was a beautiful day, and after that long winter I was not going to complain about blue skies and green trees.
Well no big drum, or feisty catfish or big beautiful Guad hybrids or 30+" gar or ....
My bigest fish of the weekend- 14"
Paul got a nice Guad X, and Kevin was happy with 6-7 fish.
The bovines were enjoying the day-
Serious Bull - this guy was ripped
We made our way down 13 miles down to the island. This is a popular place to camp but this year so far not many people have been out. No one has been in this camp in a long time.
Both Paul and Kevin were sporting new tents, I've finally gotten used to my little tent.
I know there's those of us that like to see the food pictures, we did it up pretty good -
Mine, I had to break out two plates -
Kicking back around the fire -
I hit the sack and didn't wake 'till the birds were out chirping, 8am. We didn't have that far to go to the take out so sleeping in a little was ok.
We hit the river after breakfast. Fish still weren't biting so I just enjoied the flow for the 5 miles down.
It was a nice relaxing trip. I catch so many fish out here that I can't complain about the fishing. I'm just glad it is finally Spring.
Had a great time Paul as always.
