All Snagged Up...2010

This past weekend was my annual voyage to Warsaw for spoonbill. I'm a bit of a legend at the lake for my lack of ability in catching any. So I wanted to start the post with this's not spoonbill, but catfish is fish and I caught it. Actually I caught several. Not that this will dim my legend any at all.

This is my buddy Joey. He yanked in this 8 pounder and put us all to shame. Beginners luck.

Here's the whole crew with our two hour take. A fish fry in the making.

Of course, we never get the boat out without having some sort of breakdown. This years winner was a faulty bearing cover. Nothing a four by four post couldn't fix.

...waiting for the fish to jump in the boat.

The mornings were a bit chilly but the view made it worth while.

Ray stayed up late playing Texas hold'em. Needless to say he wasn't catching any fish.
Jeremy proudly displays his catch.

We once again made camp at the Old Oar House Inn. Going to the lake and not at least stopping here would be like going to Disney World and not seeing Mickey.

Fish or no fish we had a good weekend. We're booked for next year, our 12th, and I'm looking forward to it already.
