I haven't been by your blog to visit and know that I owe some kind of explanation.
The truth is that it came to pass that I suddenly needed a new background picture for my computer.
So we had to go a few hundred miles to take this one. Ol' Captain 'Hook' took the crew to Harlan County Reservoir on the Nebraska-Kansas border in center of the state.
The decision to do this meant that my stock went up with my wife. She loves fishing.
Since our return the stock has returned to pre-trip lows because of some 'profit taking.'
One never knows when you might run out of watercraft.
This little lass likes to fish. But like the rest on this '3 hour tour', can't quite remember how to clean a white bass.
Mrs Hook caught these two wipers among many other fish. A wiper is a hybrid stocked into many Nebraska lakes by the Game and Parks commission. They are a cross between a white bass and a striped bass.
They get much larger than the white bass. The one on the left weighed in @ 4 1/4 pounds while the other one wasn't weighed but went at least 3 pounds.
I truly would like to have seen the one that got off of my line. He came half way to the boat and then ran. He straightened the hook out.
More pictures to come.
A sign at the marina: ~God does not subtract the hours spent fishing from a mans life.~
