Well, at least we didn't have any trick or treaters. We put in at Paynetown and hit all points to the south. I lost a three fish before we arrived at Sugar Creek. It was a calm and sunny day, one of those when you see no surface activity and by 4 p.m. you're starting to think you're going home with the skunk. But at the mouth of Sugar Creek I finally hooked into a 6.0 pounder. Good fight. Next turn a 9.1 pounder came to the boat. Nice fish. It was starting to take on that horribly obese, big-body-small-head look that they have when they get bigger. Then Mr. Piggy caught a 6.2 pounder on the next turn and a 5.0 pounder the next one. All together we probably caught ten fish by nightfall. Never did see any surface activity and the gulls weren't even around. Heard the loons crying at the setting sun and an enormous bald eagle circled over us for a time. We left the lake, lasy ones out of the water, as the sun set. If only we had a month or more of days like that left in 2008.

Thank you, sir. I hope the health issues pass soon and remain no more than distant memory in the near future. I also hope you're able to come this way one day and will be delighted to share a few hours on the lake.

Take Care of Yourselves,
Slow
