What a beautiful fall day to be out on the water. Lake Champlain was fore-casted to have up to three foot waves but I found a totally different scene when I arrived. Granted I didn't get on the water untill just after the noon hour, and the folks coming off the water said the fishing was hot...untill the wind died down and the lake flattened out.
Well, they were right. No problem with rough water and the fish were inactive. Landlocked Salmon, Brown Trout, and Steel-head are all present but laughing at my spoons as I washed them behind the boat. I tried every tactic I could think of and every color in the rainbow...including the rainbow!!!
Released to be caught again another day, to bring a smile to another anglers face.
Then my phone rang...
My wife was at the Mall in South Burlington when she heard the description of her SUV with her license plate number come over the intercom.
It seems that some scumbag broke into her vehicle to steal our wonderful family pet. CoKo Pug.
Scared but uninjured, CoKo was still in the SUV. The rear hatch broken open, shards of glass everywhere...
I'm fishing for a different species. I'm fishing for the guilty party.
Fish on, fish H8 me.
