I made a springtime droppy trip to the SR this past Sunday fishing Monday and Tuesday.  Fishing was a grind but I managed 5/7 each day including a nice Skamania on the second day.  I lost a few nice fish that were in the 30"+ range after lengthy battles.  Almost all the fish were hooked in heavy riffles or on the soft edge adjacent to the riffles.  All in all it wasn't a bad trip.
 
FYI- it appears that didymo has made its way into the SR.  The green slime was constantly fouling hook and shot.

This weekend was fun Stuff. Splashdown went extremely well. Sleeping on the water was awesome. Got to share good times with old friends and new . Seen my first live music gig in over 18 months and we even caught a few fishies.
3 more adventurous weeks ahead.

Glad to see someone still knows how to catch fish -
Congrats Rich.
 
Went out this AM looking for a crop damage Deer- none came by but it was a nice way to check up on the Turkey population  since that season is upcoming.
They have been down the past couple of seasons on this farm.
 
4 gobblers sounded off bout 5/15 around 75 yards behind me on a ridge as I sat on a field edge.
The gobblers and a hen dropped down bout 5/40 and the hen walked right up to me about 8 feet away bringing 3 jakes with her-then a full strut gobbler came down the tree line and all walked slowly off.
For a bit there had 4 Toms and the hen within 15 yards.
 
The big Tom came back an hour later and walked right by sounding off like crazy as a 5th Tom started sounding off on that ridge behind me and another hen could be heard clucking up there.
 
( with my luck lately as far as catching goes I predict never to see or hear those birds again- in my life)
 
GREAT DAY

Turkeys doing the silent thing- all with hens  right now- see them walking in the distance and Quiet.
Not on the normal roosts either the past few days.
Havent heard one gobble or had an answer in 3 days of hard hunting.
It will change soon- unless my prediction of the last post comes true, lol.
 
What a difference from 2 days before when scouting.

Well rg, you got into the great outdoors. It seems that is your goal and a good thing indeed. I'm stuck in a mighty muddy river right now and the catching ain't happening either. What a difference the weather makes.
Great thing is it's all fun stuff as long as we're able.

Rich --GREAT fish---
 
Been trying for henned up Turkeys for days  - gobble on the roost and then go silent with  hens.
Have watched them from afar and tried to get one to veer off without any luck.
Today no dawn gobbling or sightings then about 645 hear a gobble or two from well over 600 yards
What the heck he's far off and strutting soooo gave a long loud cackle--he responded but wouldn't move.
I went about halfway to him as he sounded off now and then and took up a spot and gave a softer cackle.
He had been so far off I had barely been able to hear him and he was still a few hundred yards off on another property.
He went silent- and I hoped he was coming in quiet- orrr he could have folded up and left ????
Half hour later I took a different call ( like to change the voice now and then) and peeped and gave a soft cluck.
Minutes later---
There he was sneaking in on me--- big  long double beard.
Got him at 755- had taken over an hour to work him
LOVE IT
Can take 5 a year here but I have a one and done mentality with lower numbers out there so its over this year.
 
 Now for those crop damage Deer I have been seeing.

Congrats on the perseverance and skill to stick with that bird.

The poster formally known as Duncsdad

Everything I say can be fully substantiated by my own opinion.

1 for 4 on boat last night. Water temperature is rising fast and fish will be making an exodus very soon. My last day will be on Saturday then boat hits land.

What an incredible cool breeze night to wind down on the front porch.
My sister says , when the moon is full, mom and dad are watching over us.
So grateful to be here.

Perhaps not really -fun stuff- but
YA CANT MAKE THIS STUFF UP--
 
Seems that Florida has a large Iguana population of big nasty Iguanas.
Some guy got bit by a 3 foot long one and later needed 20 stitches on the wound.
Its apparently legal to kill them down there providing its a quick humane kill.
This guy kicked the thing to death and the authorities decided the Iguana must have suffered so the guy is now under arrest and in court facing  a several year term.
 
He tried to use the Fla stand your ground law but the court said it didnt apply to Iguanas and threw that defense motion out - the criminal case continues---
 
Guess there is more than one way to look at this but I know where I stand----------

So the pool project has begun. I jackhammered out 1 section of intake line and sure enough, found a crack in line. Elbows are always first to go.
So these lines run under all the concrete which would be a nightmare to replace.

My contractor had the same issues and he came up with a much better solution by taking a concrete saw and cutting a trench in all the sections, ran all new lines and covered the trench with removable patio blocks for easy access.
Now I know what I'll be doing this weekend, not so fun stuff..

I don't envy you that job. Cement work is gritty and miserable in hotter weather!  I think the only thing more intrusive than cement dust is beach sand,  but at least beach sand means you are having fun!

Re: fun stuff 2021/06/07 17:10:42 (permalink)
So this was much needed fun stuff to heal our soul. Our favorite grateful dead cover band " the wheel " played a grand opening show of a new place called the venue. It's a giant Roman catholic church. The vocals weren't so hot with all the space but the music was fantastic.
It was a trial run to see how my sister would handle concerts.
I can say, once the music started, you could see her soul being lifted to a happy place. She danced the night away and very much in time with the beat.
After the first set finished about 10pm, the entire band including vinnie Amico from ( moe.) Came to give her hugs of gratitude and a free concert shirt. It's things like that which make my life a better place.
We hung tough dancing until midnight and while the band played on , it was time for us to leave.
She was so proud of that shirt, she wore it to program today to show it off.
For all the struggles and pitfalls, I couldn't be happier being surrounded by loving people.

Grandchild # 10 , baby Ethan became shown the light of this world today.
We only produced 3 kids ( twin boys and 1 girl ) in our 36 years of marriage but boy did the grandkids sprout up like beanstalks.
5 boys 5 girls ages 15 to 2 hrs old.
I'm pretty sure 🤞 everyone is settled on family additions for now. . Can't wait until my kids start to feel old too, lol

Have a blast at the beach gills. Where you heading ?
