The Fishing Trip AAR

It was gorgeous yesterday after he wind died down in the morning. Sunny, downright hot in the afternoon. At one point I pretty much had a five mile stretch of the Columbia river all to myself it seemed. No one on the dock, not a tug boat, speed boat, fishing boat or water ski to be seen. If it wasn't for the fact that Highway 14 was a couple hundred yards away it would have been perfect.

The fish must have had other things to do though. I caught one tiny little dude all day.

Doesn't matter, it was the peace and quiet I was after.
I finished up the paperback, had some Chicken On A Stick for lunch and just relaxed all damn day.

It was great. I'll be doing that again here real soon.

That would be a Northern Pikeminnow, AKA Squawfish before some PC bastard with too much time on his hands heard of it.
You can actually sign up and get $4 apiece for catching and turning them in around here. They have to be 9 inches long. They are a voracious predator that specializes in Salmon smolts.
