Week 5............

So far this week we have only caught a total of 26 fish!  We were catching more than that per day until this week!    On Saturday a whole new group of people arrived and while we've been introduced to most of them, I can only remember John, but not his wife....the two teachers - but not their names and Roger and Gloria.  That's Roger with Bill and Rich sitting out the other night enjoying the weather and a cold beverage.   A little earlier - before the mosquitos came out, Gloria came over with a bottle of Moscato and we talked for quite a while.

Today - lots of rain!  We headed out fishing anyway and took along the ponchos.  Didn't rain for long and there was a great breeze.  Rich caught two more nice catfish, one at just over 25 inches at 7 1/2 lbs, and the other at 24 inches and 6 3/4 lbs.  With the one that I caught we must have caught about 35 lbs of catfish.  Plan is to have Bill smoke them after the family arrives.  Those are some huge fillets!   And I caught about a 12 or 13 inch perch.......So it was a pretty good hour or so of fishing.  Hope to head back out today.

Fish Count To Date: 399. Rich 221, Donna 185

Last year at this time we were home celebrating my bestest friend's birthday.                                                                                                                                   This year it was just a phone call to wish her a Happy Day and let her know we miss her!

Happy Birthday, Tonyia, from Rich and I.  Enjoy your Mahi tonight at Red Lobster.
