The float on the New River was washed out by some local storms so ........I hit a local lake to keep from unloading a dry toon.Fished from 6:30 to about 1:00 and had all the sun I could stand.Pretty water and about 20 tall -short -fat trout. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Dang nice Gill Peewee.
I've got some new Force Fins coming UPS and lake fishing just might be the cards.
Up here I don't have to worry bout the gators and moccasins gettin me. Sitting in the water has got to beat hiking the shoreline in this heat...
