Okay, now for the rest of the story.....
Here is my wife enjoying the current and idly gliding along. She did catch a nice 1 1/2 lb largemouth on a jig.
As David said, the fishing was off but the trip was still nice. I ended up catching six small bass with a mixture of Guad hybrids and largemouth.
Here we are arriving at the island
Look at the water level
As you can see, the water is up but the current has started to slow from earlier in the day.
Set up the tent and made the campsite ready.
This is my new Coleman Hooligan 4 tent set up without the rain fly on and with a queen size inflatable matress inside.
After the run in with the wild hogs I set up a perimeter on the back of the tent with the kayaks and later on the sides of the tent with the chairs and paddles.
Dinner consisted of some pork chops, bacon wrapped filets, and good ol beans.
After dinner we settled in with some nice roasted marshmallows
Paul, after seeing how comfortable you were in your chair last trip I purchased a couple for this one and it does make a difference. Cost $5.00 at Academy and small and compact.
Able to get enough wood gathered up to last through the night.
As expected neither one of us got much sleep with the hogs rummaging through the woods all night, as well as the two owls that decided to talk to each other for hours and the nice serenade from the coyotes on the other side of the river.
Woke up at six to a small rain shower and threw the rainfly on top of the tent. Soon as it stopped I started breakfast while she started cleaning and packing. After eating we packed everything up and noticed that the water had risen three feet during the night and the flow was definately moving.
Few pictures that I took on the island.
Even witout much sleep she still had a great time. She was even a trooper when the current took her into a tree and almost rolled her. If she wouldn't have been in my Malibu Stealth I think she would have been flipped and lost some gear. They are the stablest kayak I have ever owned.
Thanks for reading.
