I had the day off and haven't kayaked in about a week and half. Excited to get out! Couldn't sleep so got up early strapped the kayak on.
I got to Powder Creek via a 20 minute back road detour! 8:15 I'll still take it --I knew I had to be off the lake early today! I paddled to the middle, the wind really starting to pick up and the waves were getting choppy. I wanted some more protection so paddled over into the back bay to try my fishing luck.
|Choppy, I see my bobber!|
I got some advice from my brother to go with gulp maggots. I started fishing and floating. The current was really pushing me so I decided to hunker down on the rocks and keep casting. I wasn't really paying attention and all of a sudden my fishing rod jerked. I set the hook and had a nice fight. At the end of my line what did appear???
|A 15inch or so Catfish!|
|I'll take it!|
|Super excited me!!!!!|
I decided to paddle close to the shore and go to the other side. I got a little close........When this happened.....
In west powder creek I hear the occasional moo and there is more wildlife then your average zoo! I spend most of my day chillin' out kayaking and fishing the lake away. A couple of geese who were up to no good started making trouble in the lake woods one flew a little close and I got scared, I took a dunk and now I had wet hair!
|My hoodie weight about 40 pounds after the dunk!!!|
|Caught some Panfish|
|The truck is all packed up!|
