Not much going on here. Deadwrench will probably go into hibernation this weekend. I have some plans, maybe an NV-4500 if I get a Christmas bonus, or some side racks for the bed. I'm diddling with my Cub Cadet 70. And working too many hours.
In this world there are givers and takers. The takers eat well, the givers sleep well......
Go back up and look -- *I* said ---- striper --- as in Atlantic Striped Bass (Morone saxatilis).... This could be a looooooong winter ......
Billy -- we *both* got spray in our faces Feeling the seas up to your knees and a little salty water on the face renews the soul. Okay, so it wasn't exactly canyon running, but under the present circumstances it is better than nothing. A little spit of rain wasn't so bad, either. A fish would have been fun to bring home as a bonus, but I was glad just to be out on the water with a reliable engine .
Roger that. Its been a while but not that long that I don't remember what it is like running back to port and getting a little of saltwater in the face. Mmmmm, salty.
Oh and jocularity aside, you haven't been fishing if you haven't hooked up a big ol Stripped bass before. I've been fortunate to go deep sea fishing several times in my life but catching a 34" Rock out on the Chesapeake Bay was the best day I ever had with rod and reel.
