I know you are all at the edge of your seats awaiting my next fishing report.
..A bit windy today
Tomorrow I will get to the reservoirs.
..river fishing is probably concluded for this year.

Today - some hiking and mushroom hunting
then a quiet evening in reading Steinbeck.
..Some bourbon - the cheap stuff, of course.

Some friends of mine got a charter out of Middle River, Maryland for fishing in the Chesapeake Bay. They caught some nice stripers. It was a 6 or 7 hour charter but they caught their limit in 3 hours.

This is the smaller one that my buddy caught:



I was offered an invite but I'm not a fisherman and didn't like the idea of going out on a boat. Turns out, it would have been a bad day for me to request off from work. However, the main reason I declined was because of the friend who planned it. Let's call him Putz. He has everything planned but he's always late and never ready. 'Okay, everybody needs to be at my house at 4:45 because we need to get on the boat at 6:00.' My buddy got out of his truck and Putz's brother-in-law was standing in the driveway shaking his head. Putz just woke up. And then, my buddy said that Putz had to wash out his coolers. I had to say <yell/scream> WHY DIDN'T YOU DO THAT LAST NIGHT! LOL Fucking Putz. I love him but he irritates the hell out of me.

I’ve eaten Stripers for lots of years. They call it Corvina here. It’s a salt water bass thats great deep fried, or with butter and garlic.

Had brought my camera yesterday only to find
both of my batteries were low and soon out.

I will do better next time
though I see photobucket is by subscription only
these days
and my former account is no longer active.

Sad indeed.
Lots of very nice Boletes though.
Beginning the most beautiful time of year to hike.

I used to pick em in the redwood forests in N.Cal. Especially good after a forest fire. A nice 1.5 inch fall rain fall you were in business. Porchini, golden and black chanterelles, oysters, and a few others I’m not good enough to identify. My friend Dave that lives in Healdsburg is an expert.

What about in CR? - must be plenty to forage there.
Can't be all about the emerald weed.

Imgbb works fairly well for me. Took me a minute to figure out how to upload pics but finally did. :)
