This weather has to change!!

As much as I hate to say it.......we really need some rain.  We are renting an aluminum row boat with a small motor.......but if the water gets any lower we will not be able to leave the dock.  The dock is very very long........but every day the water level gets lower!!  Having said that.........the past few days have kept us from fishing.....just way to windy!

But we took advantage of the weather and decided to take a ride into Ogdensburg for dinner Monday evening.  I drive into Ogdensburg to do grocery shopping most of the time.........but with Rich driving, I was able to get the camera out and some pictures.  I just love this North Country............the beauty, the lakes and rivers, the Amish communities, the corner stores, the family restaurants......   Here are a few pictures that I snapped along Country Route 6.

Actually, this picture was taken from the front screened porch at the cabin.  This was the lake a few days ago........fog and rain.

Acres and acres of corn fields!

Love these old farmhouses.

The first bridge we cross in Ogdensburg, is the Oswegatchie River.  Actually Black Lake flows into this River, and the Oswegatchie flows into the St. Lawrence River in Ogdensburg.

We enjoyed dinner at the DK family Restaurant.  Family owned and run with a great menu.  We both ordered the Fried Haddock Fish Fry.........and it was very very good!

Today we finally got back out fishing.  We were out before 9:30 this morning.  Wind was from the North so we headed north, the other side of the bridge to fish near Booth's Island........and drifted back.  

This is near Booth's Island. 

The bridge near Booth's Island.  Often see the Amish fishing in this area as they were today. 

And being Amish country....... we always see the horse drawn carriages.

Today was not the best fishing day - but I did catch another nice Small Mouth Bass. This one was my biggest so far at 16".  Caught this on in the morning.  We went back out after dinner around 6 o'clock.  I caught 4 crappie - 2 nice keepers, and Rich got 2 crappie, both keepers and a smaller Bluegill.
