On the water with Deitz (pics added)

11 posts in this topic

A while back I shot an email to Deitz asking if he wanted to go out for a bit this particular morning. I told him I had a couple lenses rented for a wedding this last weekend and would love to get out on the water with him again for a little fishing and some fun photos. So that is what we did, meeting at the launch ramp at 5:45 this morning I loaded some gear into the boat, donned my waders and jumped in. We did some shots as the sun was coming up and then we caught some fish and had a fly by too. The highlight of the morning was the piggy I caught at 9:15ish this morning. Enjoy the photos.

By the way, sorry for the large size, but they had to be big.

Early morning, let's go fishin.

One for good measure. 5 lbs 6 oz. What a TOAD!

There is a bit of sensor dust I tried to remove, but I may have to send the camera in to have it cleaned or try a different method. The Giottos rocket blower wouldn't do it.

I will also try to get a few more up here later this evening.

Sorry it took so long, but here are a few more.

Took a hint from someone and cropped a pitching shot a little different.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
