These were from this past week-end... Karen is a friend of Shelley my wife. Karen likes to fish, where Shelley is more a girly girl...LOL.

Hurry up, get through with your treatments, or just a visit to Florida and look me up.

Even a Bad Day of Fishing, is better than a Good Day at work...

Best ~ John

Fishing and hunting were my hubby's passion before illness slowed him down. He could outfish me in a heartbeat. But I still enjoyed it also. I was never a hunter, although some women are. I'd just as soon scare the game away. LOL

Looks like you had a great time.

It would be similar to what you have already seen... Specks (crappie) just go with Cheese Grits for me, LOL... Grouper, flounder, pompano, redfish, trout,,snapper, etc...can be fixed a variety of ways.

Specks are deep fried with cheese grits on the side, LOL....and more than likely a cold one close by...

OK, what the hey, I'm not one to disappoint...

Skiffin & Karen,


Mega doom and gloom for the fish, but we gotta eat. 


My nutritionist recommended Omega 3, but to cut back if I visit you.  Are you eating enough fish down there?


Do you have some nice lawn chairs for after fish and grits where I can relax and share H&N stories till we both need another drink of water?


I don’t know if it is radiation brain, but you got me dreaming.

Hey John, I'm glad to hear, and even better, to see that you had a good day out on the lake.  It just goes to show you that sometimes having a crappie day is really having a very good day............<*** src="/sites/all/libraries/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/***/smiley-smile****" alt="Smile" title="Smile" border="0" />

Since I live in the south and actually down here they call Crappie Speckled Perch or Specks...

I could be considered a;

Nice catch Skiff!  Glad to see your still pluggin' away. 


If it's warm enough - headed to a power plant lake here tomorrow myself for some papermouths (aka - crappie, specs).


Keep your line tight!

Yep, you know that....

Here in the winter we catch most in the shallows, long tall grass (Kissimmee Grass) and lilies mainly.

Without a good net person, you loose probably 25% just from the hook pulling out before you get the net on them.

It's like Jungle Warfare... Combat Fishing.

Lake Kissimmee is the 2nd largest in Florida...35, 000 acres.

You can actually see the small orange bobber, bottom right in the photo.
