  2. I took my dad and nephew to Normandy to enjoy this pretty day we had. First time I have been on Normandy in 20 years. Managed to catch 2 with this being the bigger ...more of the two. Unfortunately my nephew lost one and dad didn't catch anything but we enjoyed the almost 70 degree day.

  5. Started out at 35 degrees this morning but the fishing warmed up pretty good. Wound with 6 lmb's and a bunch of small stripes, too many to count.

I am an avid weekend fisherman. I fish every weekend with my wife and best friend Will. We enjoy spending time on the water catching fish and ...more sun. I am always looking to learn more about how fish act and trying to catch them. It is the greatest escape and relaxation there is.
