Wow, I can write this one up really quickly for a change! I Got out in the middle of the afternoon...hooked nothing despite an hour or two of effort. High Waves (for Como) with strong winds from the West-NorthWest made conditions difficult. Casting was a PAIN!

68F water temps at the shore have probably pushed the pike further out. The rough surface conditions probably aren't helping either. I'm still suspecting a good early morning and late evening bite, but I think the days of bonanza action are over for a while!

Meanwhile, our garden is just looking fantastic!

Stunning! I wish I know what these are! Anyone recognize these blooms?!
