We both retired in May of 2006. For the first 6 years we were avid RV'ers and addicted to the game of Pickleball. In September of 2013 we sold the RV and bought a house on the canal to Lake June in Lake Placid, FL where we continue to meet new people and make new friends. Fishing is our favorite past-time now. THANK YOU to our families and friends, old and new, for making our retirement the best chapter in our life so far.

One more day of fishing........
And so week three ends without the "big" catch. But at least there was no rain. There was a decent breeze in the morning, so we headed out around 9:00 am and came in just after noon, catching 18 fish. Back out round 5:00 pm, and fished until 8:30 and caught 23. I caught a 11/1/2 inch small mouth bass - not big enough to keep, but fun to bring in. Rich's biggest of the day was a 12 inch perch. Only caught about 5 keepers! But instead of Rich, I now have the record for the smallest fish. Almost as small as my jig; baby perch that I somehow snagged that was not as big as the medium size minnows Rich was using as bait!
Week 3 ends with a total fish count of 291. Not bad given how many bad weather days cancelled our fishing plans. Rich still in the lead 153 to 138.
