Summer Doldrums x 1000

I haven't been keeping up.  I haven't been fishing much- maybe 15 trips in the last 30 days.  I rolled the dice and used up much of my vacation time, favor time, and away from wife time during the "60 days" in May and June.  So, when July rolled around and HUGE fish pushed through the canal, and likely some of my spots, I just couldn't be out there.  I had family obligations, friend obligations, work obligations, etc.

But worse than that, I've had a lot of personal stuff going on in my life that has prevented me from getting out.  I'm so exhausted, so run down, I can't fish the night tides.  It's been hell.  It's been the worst couple months in a VERY long time.


Personal Best- 5lb small mouth on fly!

I spent the weekend on a lake in Maine with Carly.  We had a fantastic time.  And I slayed the bass on my 6WT fly rod.  I had 4 large mouth over 4lbs, 2 small mouths over 2lbs, and this monster at over 5lbs.  We saw eagles, loons, osprey, otters, and loads of other wildlife.  It was a fantastic trip.
