Smorgasbord 7-26

Recommended Posts

Well yesterday was a rough day.  My dad passed on Sunday and the funeral was at 10:00 am yesterday.  When I got home I realized I needed to keep myself busy to keep from thinking of him.  Then it hit me that if it had been dad, he probably would have gone fishing.  
 

I pulled the boat out of the barn at 5 and was on the water at 5:30.  Running electronics I was able to find a few pockets of fish stacked up over deep water, along bluff walls, and in the shade!  Trolled 1/8 oz jigs for a few hours and was rewarded am with a few really nice crappie, a few shorts, a channel cat, and several white bass.  The crappie and the cat came home for a smorgasbord dinner!  
 

all in all it was a nice evening for a night when I just wanted to feel something tugging on the line.  Largest crappie was just under 1.5 pounds and three more in the 1.2 range.  Made for a good dinner and really helped me out.  
 

good luck to you all.

@Greg B. very sorry to hear about your loss. As you mentioned you went out and did what your dad would have done and caught a nice bunch of eaters for yourself and family. I'm sure that he would be proud. congrats on the nice fish and hang in there!

So far fishing has helped.  We are camping on the river this weekend.  Losing dad and a tough, but he would have fished every day if he could.  I think about him often while I’m out there and I think he’s bringing the fish to me!!!

in any event, thanks for all the thoughts.  I’m gonna keep fishing.
