I loved the White when I live down there. Little Red is a much better fishery though.

He is floating with my niece, his 15yo granddaughter. She doesn't wade yet...

They are drifting. She caught the first two early and knocked the skunk out of the boat.

The White was his home water, back when he was in STL.

I am due more pics.

ps: the AR host does not offer top bunks... :D

Every couple of years... though I do a standing invite starting this fall. Cots and tents; that I handle.

Nice brown Stretch. Bright skies and clear water. So jealous. I haven't seen the sun in a week.

Just recently, based on reports...

Water has been up and down, and just yesterday resonable enough, so I was told.

Don't know. They dropped it off on the same side it started.

Caught my first fish ever this week. It was fun. Rainbow Trout at Panguich Lake in UT.
30 years old and never fished before... what a shame. Better late than never I suppose.

My first fish was caught in the C&O canal that runs alongside of the Potomac. I still remember that little blue gill, 1951 maybe 2.

The more you fish, the more folks you'll meet that have no regard for the truth.

Lol...your story reminds me of the first time we took my little sister fishing. She caught a small Bluegill and was so happy about it. She didnít want to let it go, but we finally convinced her she had to if she wanted it to live. She gently placed in the water, and it barely swam away.

5 seconds later a huge largemouth came out of nowhere and swallowed it whole. My brother and I were laughing so hard, and my sister was devastated--for weeks. She never went fishing again.

If it makes you feel better the pic is from back in the spring.
Hit some blue lines yesterday, found some wild bows but no specks.

This picture was taken about a week after the NY Daily News posted a front page pic of a supposed 30 ft great white towing a fishing boat backwards (mid 70's). Of course once we saw that....we had to charter a boat and go out and catch it. (only able to get this 9' Mako)

The boat was the Shark Hunter II out of Montauk. The captain (standing second from left) had both legs blown off below the knees in 'Nam. We went the next couple of summers with him further and further out. Some spooky stuff when you're drifting alone out there at night with the lights out and chum in the water...
