Thursday we went fishing and we had a FINE time!!! Again, we were on the lake at 0700 and it was a super day. As you can see, the lake is smooth as glass. The fish make you work a little to search them out, but we dug out 4 NICE ones!! This time the largest was close to 19 inches.......and the smallest 15". By shortly after noon, the wind started to come up and the fishing was slowing down, so we took the boat out, filleted the fish with our electric knife and was back in Custer by 2pm. Tired but happy.
Friday we spent a few hours helping our friends Neal and Deb Hughes put new steering cables on their fishing boat. That was a JOB!! But we got them in and it should be ready to fish. Maybe we can try it out next week..... I like to fish when somebody else does the driving for a change. It's MUCH more relaxing........driving the boat and finding the fish gets to be a challenge. We have been fishing Angostura lake for 14 years now. We know it well and have our favorite spots, but that's no sign the fish will be biting there TODAY.
You can see that the Sun had just come up over the horizon a few minutes before. I waited until the balloon was passing through the Sun,....see it?.....you can also see the shadow of it in the foreground.
