Default Bait and Bass- TR

Hit a familiar spot and caught some. About 20 of each, though all small. Catching 40 fish is still a damn fine way to spend an afternoon.

A snake skeleton. Likely a large rattler that crawled out onto the road earlier in the spring to warm up.

BigCliff: Yikees! You keep those things down your way. Last year floating the North Platte we came upon a rattle snake swimming across the river, gave me the willies.

I prefer rattlesnakes over cottonmouths- they'll actually give you a warning, and aren't nearly as aggressive as cottonmouths are.
