It has been a while since I caught a big fish . . .

Actually, it's been a while since I caught any kind of decent sized fish . . .

I am an expert at catching really small fish . . .

But this morning, amidst wind and waves caused by the remnants of our recent Tropical Storm Eduardo . . . I nailed a 10lb+ freshwater smallmouth buffalo on a slab spoon.

Fishing experts and good friends, Thomas Milyo and Jim Peterson, helped me out, as we fished out of Thomas' boat. I was using a Cordell C.C. Spoon that Jim tied on my line for me.

We let this fish go back into to water after pictures . . . then I found out a little while ago after researching on the www, that freshwater smallmouth buffalo are very good eating fish.

Oh well . . .

I say it again . . . and again . . . and again . . .

Family and good friends to share the joys of life with . . . make me a very, very rich man.

Ever forward . . . ><>
