I got a call late last night...
The Crappies are biting...the house is set up, wanna go???
We left at 7 and drove to the small local lake. When we got to the public access, I saw no cars. Great, no problem parking and i can see the house about a 1/4 mile onto the lake.
As we pulled into the lot, I am waiting for my buddy to pull into a spot and stop and then...
"WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?!?!" I know I was screaming and exactly what I said was a bit more extreme. This fool I used to call my buddy was driving onto the lake. The same lake where someone fell through aweek ago with jsut a 4 wheeler.
My panic is that I don't swim in cold water. HELL...I don't even swim in warm water!
I gently SCREAMED at my former buddy to park farther away from the at house at least.
"I don't know what you are getting worked up about it has been cold for a few days."
A FEW DAYS!? I would like to live a few more days than just today!
WE caught a few fish and when we headed home...I WALKED to the shore before I would get in the truck.
When I got home my wife informed me that I was looking a bit more grey these days. HMMM, I wonder why!
This 30 inch northern I caught a couple of years ago was 2 inches bigger than the one I caught this morning. (No Camera today)
