One Week Gone.........

    Rained Monday night and there was still a steady rain Tuesday morning.  There was a fire up the road somewhere over night and that resulted in our cable being off.  So we had no TV until early evening.

We did not catch a lot of fish; Rich got three and I got 2 ( all perch or crappie)  But I did hook on to a real nice Northern Pike, that was a little over 3 1/2 lbs., and 24 inches long.  I think this is the biggest fish I've ever caught.  It was fun!!


Wednesday, there was no rain, but was very windy.  Went outside to have morning coffee and it was only 65 degrees.    It was so windy that there were white we settled in for a nice hot breakfast, oatmeal and toast.   A little after noon the wind had died down, with just enough for some drift fishing.  I think that Rich was working real hard to try to catch the very smallest perch he could!   Again we caught some perch and crappie - but nothing big enough to keep.  I hooked on to another Northern.  Not quite as big as yesterday - but still 22 inches long.

Thursday was another pretty cool and very windy day.  I headed down to Alexandria Bay to pick up a few more groceries at the Big M - and they have a liquor store, and I need some wine.  We did try to go out fishing later in the day, but the lake was so rough that we didn't last long and we were back at the dock in less than an hour.   Rich cooked some burgers on the grill and I fixed some corn on the cob.  Delicious!

Temperatures got down pretty low on Thursday night and it as only 52 degrees when we awoke on Friday morning.  Windy, rain and cold  - no fishing today.

By the end of the week we had caught 40 fish.  2 Northern Pike and the rest a combination of perch and crappie.  Rich is in the lead 22 - 18.
