Lake Anna 7-24-09

Went to Lake Anna yesterday just to check some things out. Went uplake and caught one in the muddy water (note the white coloration). Went back around mid-lake and caught one deep in a 25' brushpile (note the green coloration).

St. Judes benefit Tournament

Lee and I fished the St. Jude's tournament for the first time yesterday on the Potomac. We had 43 boats and were able to raise $4000 for St. Judes. A VERY worthy cause. First place team had over 17 lbs. for $2900 and big fish at 7.5 lbs. Paid down to fifth which a little over 15 lbs. Lee had the "hot" hand today as he put a limit in the boat by 8:30 with his favorite chatterbait. We wound up with only 10.38 lbs., but anytime I can fish with my son is a day to cherish. Sorry. no pictures.

July 5th Lake Anna Sunday Morning Series.

My son (Lee) and I teamed up to place second in this tournament that Dave Fauntleroy has during the summer at Lake Anna. Had 11.99 lbs. with the biggest fish at 4.17 lbs. A good day on the lake, but we did get wet.

Some old "saltwater" stuff

I kinda grew up on the Chesapeake Bay (weekends) and every year my Dad would take his 42' Chris Craft to Ocean City for the summer off shore season. Caught many, many white marlin, bluefish, wahoo, tuna, dolphin, etc. Thought I would post a few pictures of the ones I have mounted at the house and the boat in remembrance of my Dad. He would have been 100 years old yesterday.
