another great fishing trip

ahhh.   finally got a couple of days to return to long point.  Only two nights, but  the weather was gorgeous, the bite was hot, and I slept and ate well.    Jacks, blues and ladyfish were screaming.  Particularly at dawn and dusk, but I found a great bite on gambler shads in the mid afternoon too.  I wore my arm out.

Saw the space shuttle launch at 6:21am, it was still dark out, and I was on the water listening to the countdown over the radio.     There were lots of families in the half full campground due to local spring break.   I shared some food and fishing stories with an Apopka family camping two spaces over – the kids attend Lake Brantley HS, one of Gina’s local crew team rivals.

Boat ran well, but I’m postponing a needed $700 powerhead overhaul.
