Warm Water Weekend

Well, it was another awesome weekend on the smallmouth rivers. On Sunday I had Drew and Brendan Parenti on the boat. Drew and his wife Linda are shop regulars and good friends of the shop as well. They decided that with the trout steams too warm to fish, taking there son smallmouth fishing would be a good change. Needless to say we had an awesome half day float down the Schuylkill, hooking several really nice fish.

So with a good morning, I invited Lenny, Lennys dad aka Lenny, and Steve "the mailman" Nelson, for an evening float down the river. Lenny bought an Outcast 2 man pontoon, he was eager to get behind the sticks again. He has been a floating fool, Leigh River Saturday, Schuylkill River Sunday, and then the Lehigh on Monday. Saw 5 Musky and Lenny and I each had one follow to the boat.

Im going to let the pictures tell the rest of the story. And Molly is doing really well on the boat now. I've had her for 8 days now and she has been on the boat 6 times, she's going to be a great boat dog!
