I had a Saturday off, and the need to be on the water was so bad. Bad enough that my better half said to get out of the house. She said that it was worse than the shack nasties. I am sure that you will believe me when I say it was not that bad.
I went to a pond that has some nice crappie in it. I did not fish it last year as it was too wet. There are a couple of flow places to cross that would eat the truck when they are wet but now it was dry enough now to get into the pond. I arrived at the pond and set up my canoe. The lily pads had exploded in number, and they were around most of the pond. The water was down about 2 feet, and several of the lily pads had their feet in mud and not water.
