it's gonna be years before this one is a keeper

 Pitch black out and targeting whatever is in the darkness...
Thought I felt something gobble it.  Smallest largemouth I've ever happened upon.  The weather has been pretty
toasty out the last few days. Today is expected to be the hottest of the year.  Oppressive, hot and hazy and heat advisory. I don't blame the fishies for not being more active ...

alrighty then ...

Fishing has been about the same, the weather has been upwards of 17 mph winds with 70-90 F. degree air temps. The fatties have went to different climes. Water temps are in the 70's F. This morning the municipal landscapers were at it. While it was instructive watching all the startled fish and their locations, only the most ballsy fish broke cover to chomp the fly.

Went over to my son's new place for dinner. Which happened to be quite delish. While I was determining what
the malfunction was with his computer ... I saw this bag of many things came to mind ... and there are no
female mice in the bag...

Well, time to go to work ... hopefully fishing afterward.

The fishing was well, fishing.

But the sunset certainly closed the day out nicely and even caught an 8 ounce bluegill! ;-P

The water was fairly warm, the sun has been beaming, the wind moderate. Was stalking the chain pickerel, but I couldn't find where they were stalking. Did have a 'run in' with a huge Mute Swan. She was like fifty yards away (picture right) and came flying at me about three feet off the water, (she must have been thinking it was her lake) and then banked sharply about ten yards in front of me...that's why I say, "All the best pictures are in my mind."
