Last week was top notch for me! We spent 2 days fishing down at Lake Lochloosa. We would have spent 3 days fishing but a front came in and gave the fish lock-jaw! We trolled, which means we put cane poles out the boat & slowly moved thru the water. We did pretty good like that but got greedy & moved into shallower water to fish in the grass with reels. Well I've found out that my son can not go fishing with us any more. He thinks he is captain of the back of the boat. My husband is captain of the front.....guess what that gives me.....a little bit in the middle!! Try casting your reel without crossing someone else's line when standing in the middle of the boat!! Yeah right! Another interesting thing I learned.......dont miss a bite cause if you do your husband will quickly cast his line in the exact same spot & catch YOUR FISH!! HOWEVER.......Two can play that game...I caught some of his missed fish too! It really was fun. Did I tell you I left my glasses in the bottom of the lake somewhere!! I have another good story to tell about this trip. I'll save it for later on this week. I also will tell you about my bird hunting trip Saturday. I'm telling you I had a mighty fine week!!!

yesterday was a good day in AR too.
Fishing feeds the soul my husband says...but I prefer books. I take a book when I do go fishing with him. He can sit all day and say "I think they will start biten". .never
catch a thing...but I know he still feels good just going.
I added your link to my site!

Your fishing trip sounds great....do you know how many pairs of sunglasses are in the bottom of Kentucky Lake of mine? Or even the Ohio River? Probably enough to supply a warehouse...LOL!

Tina, what a fun trip you had! I loved hearing about your trying to catch missed fish! Have I told you that I LOVE fishing?!! I'll even hook the worm myself. :0) I've never caught anything though, just weeds. LOL
Can't wait to hear more about your trip!!

Tina,
Glad you came by to see me!

You asked what business my Daddy was in. He owned a feed mill, grist mill and had livestock.

I going to post on him soon, Lord willing.
