  9. The bonus this morning were all of the crappies! Caught at least 10 of these! Smallest was just over 10". With all of the rain, the gnats are TERRIBLE! Had ...more to wear the rain jacket just to keep them off of me as much as I could. Absorbine Jr. worked for about 2 minutes, then they would swarm again! Uggggggggg!!!!!!

    11. One of the things I don't miss from Iowa are the gnats. When I moved to Kansas I asked the locals what they use to keep gnats away. They all looked at me Like ...more I was crazy. The gnats here in Kansas don't bite. Ticks and chiggers on the other hand are vicious here.

I live in Iowa City, IA. Love to fish for anything that swims! Have the Iowa River close by and lots of farm ponds. Travel north every year ...more for ice fishing trip and once during the summer. Can't wait to try deep sea fishing and notch that one off of my bucket list.
