Well, we are back safe and sound from the annual family vacation. We had a great time even though the weather was not the best. We can't controll that cry

I believe it rained every day minus thursday. Some days a few showers, other days all morning.

We caught lots of fish. The walleyes were quite active the first 3 days. 2 hour morning and evening outings yeilded about a dozen fish. Then a ten day low slid out and a high pressure moved in. We still picked a few here and there but it was tougher. By friday they were getting active. The smallies were numerous and scrappy. We got into some nice gills on our walleye spots also.

Swimming wasnt bad, water temp was around 75ish...

Heres a bunch of pictures...

On the way up we stopped at the mexico exit for some breakfast and got to see a full double rainbow. I couldnt fit the whole thing in the photo though...

We got up there and unpacked in time for Tank and I to hit the water for a bit. Motored out to the spot on the spot, his first cast he was into one...

One morning Beth and I took a boat ride down through the lake to fish the river at the outflow.

A little fog on the water and a nice reflection...

The river is loaded with these. Most run 9-12 inches but with some bigger mixed in. She probably caught literally 100 in a few hours plus I played with lots on the flyrod grin

A few life lessons with Grandpa and Uncle Jay...

1) real minnows taste better than preserved ones. She may or may not have chewed on the minnow a bit? Those of you that know me can guess which one sick

2) Drink it fast or it gets warm.

Awesome, I'm starting to look forward to this trip! Great pics, your neice is a cutie. You and Tank covered some important lessons all kids should learn. Those blue gills must have been hungry to hit buck tails.

    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
