    Default Stuck on crutches so I built a few more

    Well I decided this would a great time to break my Fibula so I was forced to stay home and do nothing for a few days. Doing nothing lasted all of 2 hrs before I started going stir crazy so I wrapped a few rods to pass the time.

    Kelly posted some pictures last week of him fishing on crutches. Reminded me that I'd done much the same thing some 18 years ago.

    I should be in a boot in 3 weeks. When that happens I'm in the water.

    Thanks John, I meant to call and ask how you did but I got a little sidetracked with my injury lol. Glad that spot work for you guys, it's literally the only place around this entire Island that's been producing fish. Glad I got hurt now while it's slow lol.

    Haha! Luckily we had the spot! The guy who we went out with was on the wagon and using his spinning rod upside down! Looked at my son and said where do you find these friends?

    Temps have cooled off the past few days, Bass are starting to behave like Bass again. My buddy caught a few in the wash this morning.

    Got two shorts on LI when the front moved in. But right now the Smallies are on a tear by the Gap! Last night a hit on every cast on top! So much fun! The Copper Mine is like a bath tub!

    I'm glad someone is catching them. I probably won't get back up there until late Fall.
