back to the grind...

I hope you and your family were able to get out and enjoy your Memorial Weekend. I was actually able to get out of town and spend it with my in-laws at their lake house down on Lake Eufaula (on the GA/AL border south of Columbus).

My wife and I had not been to the lake since last Fall and what a difference as far as the lake levels. Between the heavier rains over the winter in Central and Southern Georgia and the fact that they are letting out more water into the Chattahoochee River the lake down there is at full pool. That is much improved from the more than 5' drop we experienced last year. Last Fall we were barely able to get the boat off the lift!

Much of the time we were there last week was spent fishing. Although the fish were not biting at a record rate... we did catch a few. Here is a look at an 10"-11" Shellcracker I caught. In addition to some Shellcrackers, we caught some Bream and a few Catfish (I hate taking those things off!!!). :-)

The weather was great the whole time we were there with highs in the 80s... picture perfect!

Today is my 3rd of 16 straight days working so it's a good thing I rested up! Still, my job still beats working for a living. :-)
