Why take pictures when there's nothing to take pictures of?!?! Going on my fourth straight day of SKUNKSVILLE! I went to the lake by my house after work; Bart and I were supposed to hit Gillson but he had a late emergency at work and couldn't make it.

So I get there and things are perfect with one exception; there aren't ANY fish around! Simply NO FISH. I tried for probably 2 hours and maybe saw one or two very small perch along with some assorted baitfish, but other than that it was DEAD!

4th day skunked in a row...not fair.
