Just a Day On the Lake

I really wasn’t feeling well, but it has been 2 weeks since I’ve been out.  So, I decided to take advantage of the free parking for the day at Don Carter State park and went out for a few hours.

Not much to report other than it was a great day.  I just wish I had felt like staying out longer.


Paddling & Fishing With My Buddy

Met up with my buddy John today to do a little paddling and a lot of fishing!  I can’t say we did a great distance, but we had a great day.

John reeled in the only catch of the day with a small Hybrid bass… Nothing worth keeping, but at least something got caught!

Another Great Outing With Friends

After almost a month of bad weather and other things getting in the way, I was able to hit the water again this morning. My friend John was a lucky winner of the Product Review contest on Paddling.net, and was awarded a brand new, Camden 120 Angler Kayak from Old Town.  This was it’s maiden voyage.

John and I were joined by his girlfriend Jess (In a rented kayak by Crescent Kayaks) paddled from the Olympic Rowing venue at Clarks Bridge Park, up to Don Carter State Park and back.

It was a beautiful day on the water.  No issues despite the fact John put a jinx on the day by transporting his new boat on the car STERN FIRST!
