It's about the heart of town, fishing is just the bonus.
Have a feeling there's more fun stuff ahead..
Peace and tuna.

I've had no time in past 2 weeks for my garden because focusing on fun stuff.
Haven't even had a working phone at times.
After spending 8 nights sleeping on the water, it's catch up.

My boat has been at dock in the marina for 18 days. We've put a lot of time in this season as the weather and fish have played nice enough to keep us going. Spent a total of 9 nights on the boat. Every trip with rods in the water except 1 have put fish on the deck. In that time somewhere around 25 or so.
We kept 5 legal fish total and everyone released was a healthy swimmer.
The are an unusually large number of very large fish. I mean many, many well over 40"
I've seen very few floaters from others and they are also catching.
Can the stripers sustain this type of fishing?

On the flip side, herring population is way down

Had a fantastic Friday evening and Saturday morning bite.
Put 14 fish on the deck with 5 over 40".
Lost countless more.
Drifting was the ticket.
Going out a few days after work but unfortunately I have to end my season by Thursday. Way to many projects to catch up on.
Peace and stripers.

Striper fun stuff is over for me.
We fished until dark yesterday and not 1 bite. Only the second skunk of the season for my boat.
Pulled the boat today and she's sitting on dry land now.
It was a great season but time to focus on the garden , farming and next adventure.

It sounds like your season went well. Those are the little perks of life that make it sweeter.

Fun stuff from woods to water.
Memorial weekend we went to deer camp to build a shooting shack for my grandson so he han youth hunt.
The build went extremely well. Everything is done except cutting out the windows.

This weekend we went to the ausable river for some fishing.
Caught a bunch of dinks on day 1 but yesterday we found the honey spot.
Kept 3 fish and released a bunch of others.
The new regulations are now only 2 fish over 12 inches.. crazy...

Next up is Rhode island to harvest a bunch of clams for the annual July 4th celebration at my house.
Wheels never stop turning here.

Mulberries starting to pop around here.  Took the dog for a walk and enough ripe ones to pick a handful for personal consumption.  This next week, should be plenty for a good picking for freezing or baking with (can you say cobbler!).

thanks Dar- your a dog guy and 'get it'  with certain dogs.
After years of breeding great champion bred english labs with the occasional rare english with his field points being bred back in this is likely our last --gotta do the whole thing.
Just wish he paid more attention to his diet.
Just got  vet call and all is well-now likely have to skip our S Carolina trip to our sons new house while recoup happens
good thing I didnt finalize a bucket list pig hunt

Ouch! Hope he heals up quickly!  We went through it with an 8 month old female over the winter, bowel obstruction for unknown cause, Doc did surgery, found a bunch of unidentifiable matter that she cleared. Hard to say what she got into but hasn't had trouble since. We were lucky, it only cost a total of about $1,350.  (xrays, barium swallow, surgery and post op meds, 1 night at vets)

Which harkens back to that age old mystery — Does a chicken have lips?

For those who live in lower NY and CT near the Long Island Sound the striped bass bite remains very good.  Since the end of April I've been out a half dozen times and have managed to keep my one allotted slot fish (28-35") each trip.  In addition there are a ton of big nasty hard fighting blue fish around in the 8-12 pound range.  Probably the best blue fish in size and numbers in many years.

Our annual clam jam in Rhode island is going great. The weather has been stellar and during the week, the campgrounds is quiet.
Clams have been coming super easy. I am getting my limits in less than an hour.
My son and grandkids came out yesterday and we hauled about 150 clams in 2hrs just messing around.

For the fishers, there has been really good fishing in the bay and breachway early and late for stripers, fluke and sea bass.

Lobsters continue to rise in price as expected but man, they are so worth it.
Current price at the dock is $12. $14 & $16.
We got 6 1.50lb at $14.00.
When we first came here years ago it was $4.00 , $6.00 & $8.00.
Obviously those days are well past.

Hopefully with the heat wave coming, my chickens survive until we get back on Saturday with a butcher date of Monday.
