I land a white crappie. Ugh.
It was another fun contest and I failed to meet my goal (again) for a number of reasons. My excuse list is as follows. Limited travel to 60 mile radius. High water levels in week 1. In week 3, I contracted hand foot and mouth disease from my kids so that kept me down for 3 days actually as it affected more severely than it usually does for adults. Also in week 3 the river began rising again dashing any hopes of normal water levels in June. Massive rains in MN flooded us down here even though we are having the worst drought here in over 25 years. I had every weekend booked up with family plans that didn't usually include fishing. On day 28 after waking up in a lot of pain and a hospital visit, I found out I have a hernia and will need surgery.
Lesson Learned: I need to stop setting my goal so high I guess.
